Diet and healthy weight: monitoring report 2021 update

The 2021 report is cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The Diet and Healthy Weight Monitoring Report is a compendium publication bringing together data mostly already published by various other sources.

The indicators presented in the report come from the following sources:

  • Scottish Health Survey (adult and children overweight and obesity)

  • Scottish Diabetes Survey (type 2 diabetes prevalence)

  • Food Standards Scotland (total and saturated fat, free sugars, sales of soft drinks with added sugar, sales of confectionery, biscuits, cakes and pastries)

  • Public Health Scotland (healthyliving award)

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, data for most indicators are either not comparable to previous years or not available at all and as a result a decision has been made not to publish the report this year.

We hope to be able to publish the Diet & Healthy Weight Monitoring Report in autumn 2022.
