Update on a compendium publication bringing together data mostly already published by various other sources.

This document is part of a collection


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, adult and children fruit and vegetable consumption) and from 2021, total and saturated fat and free sugars also come from the Scottish Health Survey (these indicators previously came from Food Standards Scotland)
  • Scottish Diabetes Survey (type 2 diabetes prevalence)
  • Food Standards Scotland (sales of soft drinks with added sugar, sales of confectionery, biscuits, cakes and pastries)

There was previously also an indicator on the healthy living award measured using data from Public Health Scotland, but that this has now been discontinued. 

Most of the data included in the Diet and Healthy Weight Monitoring report is now presented in the Scottish Health Survey report and the remaining few indicators are available in other publications or discontinued.

As a result, a decision has been made not to publish the report this year. We will engage with users to decide on the future of this publication.
