Italians are pasta addicted: over two million eat pasta for lunch and dinner, 7 / 7

They want to eat healthier but can not.


Seems to be the main worry of the Italians as is clear from the first report Coldiretti / Censis on dietary habits of Italians. In these terms describe your relationship with food is indeed almost 37% of Italians (Italians almost 4 in 10), a proportion that rises to 40.5% among 30-44enni, and more than 40% among women and even above 43% in households. According to the survey then these “frustrated” than the majority of food are almost 33% of Italians said that instead of following a healthy diet because food is among the important factors for health. A healthy trend, it is practiced mostly by the elderly (40.3%) and graduates (37.6%). Moreover knowing the quality of food they eat is considered increasingly important by the Italians, since almost 62% of respondents said a lot about nutrition facts, calories and fat on the different foods.
As the major food sources of information than television, is the web (51.1%) than for those who seek primary, followed by newspapers, weeklies and periodicals (34%), then family and friends (25, 5%) while 25.6% to use the merchants and store personnel. As for guidelines for food consumption survey Censis-Coldiretti said that approximately 2.1 million Italians who say they always eat pasta for lunch and dinner seven days a week from Monday to Sunday, while over 17 million fans for bread, 14.7 million of those who eat more vegetables, 20.3 million Italians are eating more fresh fruit, meat and 500 000 820 000 dessert. On the contrary there are some foods that many Italians never put on the table, or maybe not ever be taken into account for the lunch rather than dinner. 430mila countrymen declare that it does not ever eat pasta: either lunch or dinner, or during the weekdays nor on weekends. And 930,000 are those that have abolished the bread from their diet, while nearly 1.8 million have no relations with the rice, about 1.2 million never eat meat, 3.1 million never put fish on the table, while 370,000 are those who systematically less vegetables and more than 1 million who never eat fruit. The sweet but never in the pot of 6.7 million Italians. Finally, regarding drinks, 13.5 million Italians never drink wine or wine at lunch or dinner, while 19.2 million are those who deny the beer and 19.3 million who are becoming less carbonated drinks .
Interesting then the ratio Censis and Coldiretti survey on “food places”. Vine out that more than 80% of Italians eat at least once a week outside the home, at a public exercise, and to do so to a greater extent are men, young people (93%) and residents in the North-East (88, 3%). To justify the choice of eating out in addition to work requirements and those games, conviviality, there is a new name, very original: the occasion for the exercise of a freedom that health-conscious than those fees now imposed as important references in determining the diet of humans. In fact, when lunch or dinner at a restaurant or other public place tends to be much less nutritional value than when you eat at home. Still on the theme of eating the report says that two out of three Italians who do not give it room to snack between lunch and dinner. 62.3% of Italians do it in the morning, afternoon 63.8% and 52.2% in both the morning and afternoon. To do so mainly women, younger, single, residents in the south-islands. Fruit, yogurt, crackers and morning, even croissants, pastries and cakes are foods that make up more snacks.
Here then emerge from Censis-Coldiretti a statistical framework for the week of Italian food. So, instead of seven for each week the number of lunches, fruit, bread and vegetables are 5 times, 4.6 times the pasta, meat 3 times while the cake is on the table for two meals a week, as rice and fish. Among the beverages, however, the wine is in less than three meals per week, soft drinks less than 2 times, the beer a little more than once a week. Not much other than lunches dinners, five times a week because Italians say they put on the table vegetables, fruit and bread, unless these are meat (2.8 to 7), pasta (2.5) , fish (less than two times), sweet (even less than twice) and rice (1.6 times). Wine, soft drinks and beer are present with the same intensity that at lunch. ” Differences are dwindling even among those working days and holidays during which the only transgressions that grant Italians about the wine and sweet which are present more frequently.
Returning the urge to salute the food survey also says that a quarter of Italians eat more fruits if it costs a bit ‘less, and about a fifth would do the same with vegetables and vegetables. It is no coincidence the dualism retail stores-traditional spin on price and service built-in property, opposed the growth of direct sales by producers, including farmers markets, which are perceived as a solution that satisfies certain needs strong such as price, the authenticity and safety of the product. In 2009 two out of three Italians (67 percent) purchased at least once directly from farmer (or farmer-farm market), the form of retailing that has seen the greatest growth in 2009 from stores and hypermarkets in feeding through an increase of ‘11 per cent of the value of sales for a total estimated at 3 billion euros. It is – said Coldiretti – a phenomenon that reconciles the need to save the need to provide food security. Among the reasons for buying, according to a survey Swg / Coldiretti, stands out because the authenticity (71 pct) followed by the savings (40 per cent) and taste (26 per cent).
To make the food expenditure are still women. Over 61% of them – according to the Censis-Coldiretti – it takes decisions on what to buy family. It follows then that for the majority of Italians spending has weekly (60.7%), almost 27% of households, however, make daily purchases and 10% about once a month. The frequency of daily food expenditure on family in the North-West 17.4% in the Northeast 22.8%, 29.6% in the Centre and South islands-nearly 35% on the contrary, the frequency Weekly shares concerns gradually decreasing families from North to South The 74.6% said that among the aspects that influence the choice of food prevails from its own territory, something that presumably is seen as a guarantee with respect to quality and safety and This belief is strongest among residents in the south-islands (78.8%). Fundamentally changed since the postwar period the diet of the Italians. Show – underlines Coldiretti – increased by 300 per cent of meat consumption that has occurred over the past 60 years. But to increase so formidable was the consumption of fruit and vegetables has declined while that of bread, pasta and wine has reduced by one third. The change has also affected the rest of the qualitative aspects of food as the transition from homemade pasta to the industrial growth of beef than chicken, the arrival of new varieties of fruits like kiwi years’ 80, the emergence of extra oil to the bacon and lard present to the north since the war and the subsequent boom in margarine. Over the past 60 years have increased – even Coldiretti points – 56 percent of the calories brought to the table every day and by the Italians.
