The study, by Benenden Health, studied 1,000 British adults to find out what they think about the diets they have. The survey found some differences in ages, with younger people (43%) less likely to feel happy about their eating habits than older generations. Many experts say they believe discussions about body image in today's society has created unreal expectations for younger generations, causing them to feel worse about the way they look. Filters can cause people to appear differently to how they do in 'normal life' in order to achieve the perceived 'perfect' look. When asked about how their mental wellbeing has changed over the past few years, around two-fifths of respondents (42%) said they had felt worse since the start of the pandemic. According to the research, the average age for someone to think about dieting or losing weight is 30, with a quarter of those surveyed saying they first thought about it between the ages of 16 and 25-years-old. Just over a fifth (22%) of Brits said they have never considered losing weight or going on a diet. The research also found that losing weight does not always lead to people feeling happier about themselves. Three-quarters of survey participants said they have tried to lose weight using various diets, with just one in five (21%) saying it made them feel happier. Cheryl Lythgoe, matron at Benenden Health, said: 'It is no great surprise to find that so many individuals in the UK have an unhealthy relationship with food. From a young age ' especially for more recent generations - we are surrounded by conversations about body image, diets and comparisons with others.' http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/56percent-of-UK-adults-believe-they-have-a-healthy-diet-with-women-less-likely-to-be-happy-with-their-eating-habits-survey-reveals-05079 http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/56percent-of-UK-adults-believe-they-have-a-healthy-diet-with-women-less-likely-to-be-happy-with-their-eating-habits-survey-reveals-05079 One in five millennials have changed their diet in an attempt to help the climate, survey reveals One in five millennials have changed their diet in an attempt to help the climate: A recent survey has uncovered that 20% of millennials have altered what they eat as a response to the increasing impact climate change is having; with many choosing plant-based options instead of meat. The study by Compare by Review asserts that animal products, such as meat and dairy, account for almost half of all greenhouse gas emissions from food. The knowledge of this has resulted in more than half (54%) the respondents polled to identify as 'flexitarian'. The research also highlighted that cutting meat and dairy products from your diet can decrease your food carbon footprint by up to 73%. The younger generations are also more mindful about how travelling affects the environment, found the survey, with almost half (48%) of millennials anticipating more staycations in the future. In addition, 77% of 18 ' 29-year-olds state sustainability as a key factor when making travel decisions, compared to 48% of those aged 51 or over. When asked about their driving habits, it was revealed that millennials, on average, drive 2,000 less miles than baby boomers and own fewer vehicles too. Many of the younger respondents also revealed that they choose to cycle rather than drive, with 46% of 18 ' 34-year-olds being of the opinion that prioritising cyclists in cities is important. Younger generations more likely to have a pet The research also found that the younger generations will often choose to have a pet, with 62% of pet owners being either millennial or Gen Z; compared to 32% of pet owners being baby boomers. http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/One-in-five-millennials-have-changed-their-diet-in-an-attempt-to-help-the-climate-survey-reveals-05094

The research highlighted that nearly half of the respondents polled (46%) believe that the rearing of animals for meat is a significant contributing factor to climate change, while 37% said that food waste is. The survey also asked people about their preferences when it comes to buying and consuming dairy products, with more than three-quarters (78%) saying that they would be more inclined to buy milk and other dairy products if they were from cows that have access to pasture and the outdoors.

The majority of people surveyed (94%) said they buy dairy products for either themselves or for someone else, however, amongst 18-24 year-olds, this figure was considerably smaller (78%). When it comes to geographical regions, Northern Ireland came top for the purchase of dairy products, with 98% of respondents regularly buying them, compared to 78% in London, the lowest purchaser.
