The third report, combining data from 2008/2009 – 2011/2012 (Years 1-4) was published on 14th May 2014. The fourth report, combining data from 2012/2013 and 2013/2014 (Years 5 & 6) was published on 9th September 2016.

The rolling programme provides detailed food consumption data essential to support government activities related to health. It is the primary method for monitoring salt and saturated fats intakes and is also key to monitoring progress on diet and nutrition objectives of UK health departments.

Note that the NDNS programme does not collect information on salt added at the table or during cooking.
