Nutrition and You

ADA Announces Trends Survey Results

At a news media briefing at FNCE on Sunday, September 25, registered dietitian and ADA Spokesperson Jeannie Gazzaniga-Moloo unveiled the results of ADA's "Nutrition and You: Trends 2011" public opinion survey.

Among the findings of ADA's 8th national survey since 1991:

  • Americans eat what they like, and they like what they eat.
  • People are placing a greater focus on their health and they increasingly acknowledge the importance of diet and exercise as major contributors to healthy living.
  • Overall, Americans' desire to eat better and the efforts they make to do so have not changed much since ADA's last survey in 2008.
  • Consumers are hearing more about foods with health-related benefits, such as berries and omega-3 rich foods, and consuming more of them.
  • Half of Americans say they are eating more vegetables and whole-grain foods.
  • People prefer "eating their way to health" through inherently healthy foods, rather than reducing their consumption of foods they like that may not be as healthy.
  • Use of the Internet for nutrition information keeps growing rapidly.

ADA's press releases on the "Nutrition and You: Trends 2011" survey, a webinar of the media presentation and a PDF of the presentation's PowerPoint slides can be found on ADA's website.
