Food is necessary for life and essential for good health. The agricultural industry, which produces much of our food, influences our landscape and rural areas. The food manufacturing industry is the largest manufacturing sector in the UK. Taken as a whole, the agri-food sector contributes £97bn to the economy and employs 3.8 million people. Food retail and food services of all types are part of everyday life: from farmers’ markets to 24 hour superstores, from fish and chip shops to pubs and restaurants. Food impacts our personal lives on a daily basis. Our spending habits and eating patterns reflect our individual lifestyles and social and economic situations, and have implications for public health and social policy.

Family Food looks specifically at the domestic, or household aspect. It provides detailed statistics on food and drink purchases, expenditure and the derived nutrient content of those purchases from a large household survey covering the United Kingdom. Family Food and its predecessors have been running since the 1940s and the data produced have been used to support and inform Government policy, as well as academic research, for diverse purposes. From monitoring the effects of wartime and post-war rationing to assessing consumer response to recent food price inflation, Family Food data provides insights into the way we live through the food we buy.

Family Food is the source of detailed statistical information on purchased quantities, expenditure and nutrient intakes derived from both household and eating out food and drink.

Data is collected for a sample of households in the United Kingdom using self-reported diaries of all purchases, including food eaten out, over a two week period. Where possible quantities are recorded in the diaries but otherwise estimated. Energy and nutrient intakes are calculated using standard nutrient composition data for each of some 500 types of food.

Current estimates are based on data collected in the Family Food Module of the Living Costs and Food Survey and on adjusted data collected in the National Food Survey. Historical estimates from 1940 to 2000 are based on data from the National Food Survey
