Quality of US diet improves, gap widens for quality between rich and poor
Date:9/1/2014

c status (SES) group, associated with both income and education, were consistently higher than in the lower-SES groups and that gap widened over time from 3.9 points in 1999-2000 to 7.8 points in 2009-2010.

"Our study suggests that the overall dietary quality of the U.S. population steadily improved from 1999 through 2010. This improvement reflected favorable changes in both consumers' food choices and food processing, especially the reduction of trans fat intake, that were likely motivated by both public policy and nutrition education. However, overall dietary quality remains poor, indicating room for improvement and presenting challenges for both public health researchers and policy makers. Furthermore, substantial differences in dietary quality were seen across levels of SES, and the gap between those with the highest and lowest levels increased over time."

Commentary: Growing Socioeconomic Disparity in Dietary Quality

In a related commentary, Takehiro Sugiyama, M.D., Ph.D., of the National Center for Global Health and Medicine, Tokyo, and Martin F. Shapiro, M.D., Ph.D., of the University of California, Los Angeles, write: "The growing chasm in dietary quality by SES confronts us with the possibility that the governmental efforts to mind this gap have been insufficient. It is disappointing that the improvement seen in those of higher SES was not seen in the lower-SES group."
