UK's food poverty revealed: nutrition falls as fruit and veg prices rise

UK's food poverty revealed: nutrition falls as fruit and veg prices rise | Food, marketing | Scoop.it

Annual food survey shows that households are ditching fresh, healthy foods and 'trading down' to counter rising prices

The UK's poorest households are being disproportionately hit by the impact of soaring food prices, according to new government figures that also show the consumption of every major nutrient has fallen in the last four years.

In order to cut costs since 2007, UK households have bought less bread, lamb, beef, fish, fruit, vegetables, potatoes and alcoholic drinks – but more bacon.

The government's annual Family Food survey, which provides the most detailed annual snapshot of food and drink spending and consumption, found that weekly spending per person on all household food in 2011 was £27.99, an increase of 1.5% on the previous year. But because of price rises, that bought less food - 4.2% less in 2011 than in 2007.

Eliza Koh JL's curator insight, February 4, 2013 8:39 AM

Some countries with poverty benefitted from a tropical climate with lush vegetation and a diverse range of crops that grow all year round. This highlights just how important agriculture is to reducing poverty in some countries. As those who have poverty will have the vegetation and crops that they got and they can eat without searching for any vegetation and crops desperately. So the lesser the vegetation and crops import from other countries, the higher the price it can be.  The country should be part of the biggest exporters of a variety of products, and a much larger proportion of peoples should reap the fruits of this trade. In general, whenever the country experiences periods of economic growth, they match improvements in agriculture. It provides tons of food, jobs, raw material for other sectors (e.g. cattle) and higher income. Even today as the service sector is taking off; agriculture remains an important aspect in the country’s economy. Several studies confirmed what was obvious to everyone: people with larger farm land, those with access to loans or production assets, as well as people closer to local markets all showed much lower poverty rates than the rest. Integrating thousands of households into local markets and teaching more advanced agricultural techniques are also essential aspects to reducing poverty in some countries. In many ways this implies more government intervention, at least to invest in basic infrastructure such as roads and cheap public transportation so that people are given the opportunity to go to town and sell their crops.

Nutrients are important, especially important for children when they need the nutrients to grow. Without these nutrients, people might have deficiency diseases due to lack of nutrients or obesity due to consuming junk food and sugary drinks. I think that household markets should have an affordable prices for average household families to buy their essential daily needs. If the prices of the products are continuously increasing, I doubt that any of the families will be able to afford it and both the families and the supermarket will suffer. In my opinion, I think that the government should manage the rising prices of products in the supermarket, instead of helping out the families with financial difficulties as a larger number of people will benefit.

See. Think. Wonder.

From this article, I can see that many people are starting to not consume or buy fruits and vegetables, because they are increasing in price and instead bought quite unhealthy food. I believe this is because if the lack of harvest, thus the markets are selling things at a higher price.

It makes me think of the other countires which have fuits and vegetables of the same pricing as usual, why do people still not want to buy them? They know that fruits and vegetables are healthy for them. This also brings back to the point where the lack of money does not let one eat well and healthily.

I wonder if the country can import more fuirts and vegetables from other countires so that they have more to sell, and that they would not have to increase the price of the things which they are selling.
