Recent national French food and nutrient intake data.
Food-based Dietary Guidelines - A Staged Approach. Workshop. Dublin, IRL, 1998/03.
In France, the first national dietary survey, called ASPCC, was done in 1993-1994.
According to this survey, the mean fat intake in France is rather high, both for men (37.7%) and women (40%). Saturated fat intake is above 15% of energy.
The intake of fruit and vegetables is particularly low for younger people and manual workers.
Fruit intake is also lower for people from the north of the country.
These data show the necessity of a targeted nutritional policy in France.
Therefore, public health authorities are determining new dietary guidelines.
The fact that people with unsatisfactory nutritional status are often not concerned with nutrition proves the importance of simple understandable food-based dietary guidelines.
