Kirjeldus: The aim of the European Nutrition and Health Report 2009 is to provide a comprehensive view of the health and nutrition status in the European Union (EU). It is not intended to generate new data, but rather to collect available and authorized data, published or unpublished, on the nutrition and health situation in the EU countries.
Since the release of its predecessor five years ago, two new member states, Bulgaria and Romania, have joined the European Union the latter of which participated in the current report. Moreover, with the exception of Malta and Slovakia, the countries that joined the EU in 2005 also contributed as did Ireland and The Netherlands, not represented in the previous report. With 24 EU member states as well as Norway taking part, the amount of data contained in the second European Nutrition and Health Report 2009 has increased considerably. These countries were grouped into four geographical regions: (1) Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Sweden constitute the North, (2) Belgium-Luxembourg, France, Ireland, The Netherlands, and the UK the West, (3) Central and Eastern Europe is represented by Austria, the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Poland, Romania and Slovenia, and (4) the South is represented by Cyprus, Greece, Italy, Portugal and Spain. Like the previous project, the current project was again funded by the European Commission and coordinated by the Institute of Nutritional Sciences of the University of Vienna, Austria, directed by Professor Ibrahim Elmadfa. The coordinating center compiled the final report of the national data collected by the partners.
*To provide an overview of available data on food and nutrient intake as well as identify major national and regional health and nutrition issues were again the major aims of the report.
Specific additional objectives of the ENHR 2009 were
* to describe trends in food supply in the European Union focusing also on the
different regions (chapter 4),
*to compare average daily individual food availability at the household level
(chapter 5),
* to evaluate individual food consumption in adults (chapter 6) and energy and
nutrient intake in all age groups (chapter 7),
* to describe data on diet-related health indicators and status (chapter 8),
* to analyze food and nutrition policies in countries of the European Union
(chapter 9).
The national reports constituting chapter 11 provide more detailed information on
the nutrition and health situation in the different participating countries, especially
on issues not addressed in the main report.
Besides providing an overview of the nutrition and health situation in the European Union, this report also shows that, despite a considerable improvement of the quality of the methods of data collection and assessment, there is still a need for harmonization of databases and survey methods.
