Availability of foods and beverages in nationally representative samples of Portuguese households from 1990 to 2000: the DAFNE initiative
The aim of the study was to identify time trends and socio-demographic disparities in Portuguese food habits and to compare Portuguese food habits to those of other European countries. Data collected
European dietary patterns and their associated land use: Variation between and within countries
This paper determines the cropland use associated with the dietary patterns of 16 European countries and investigates sources of variation in land use between and within these countries. The analysis
Country-specific dietary patterns and associations with socioeconomic status in European children: the IDEFICS study
TLDR
A ‘processed’ pattern and a ‘healthy‘ pattern were found in most of the participating countries in the IDEFICS study, suggesting that children of parents with lower SES may be at higher risk of unhealthy eating.
Dietary Patterns and Their Sociodemographic and Lifestyle Determinants in Switzerland: Results from the National Nutrition Survey menuCH
TLDR
The results provide the basis for public health interventions targeted for population subgroups and highlight the influence of sociodemographic and lifestyle parameters on diet and the particularities of the language regions of Switzerland.
Evaluation of food consumption and dietary patterns in Spain by the Food Consumption Survey: updated information
TLDR
The aim of this study was to assess population food availability per capita per day, which allows the calculation of energy and nutrient intake and comparison with the Recommended Nutrient Intakes for the Spanish population.
Region-specific nutrient intake patterns exhibit a geographical gradient within and between European countries.
TLDR
The diversity of nutrient patterns in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition study at population level is described as a starting point for future nutrient pattern analyses and their associations with chronic diseases in multi-center studies.
Dietary patterns and their sociodemographic and behavioural correlates in French middle-aged adults from the SU.VI.MAX cohort
TLDR
This study identified four dietary patterns in this population of French middle-aged adults and associations with sociodemographic, behavioural and health-related factors were found to differ according to dietary patterns.
The Spanish diet: an update.
TLDR
Food consumption patterns in Spain and energy and nutrient intakes have changed markedly in the last forty years, differing somewhat at present from the traditional and healthy Mediterranean Diet.
Health, Alcohol and Psychosocial factors In Eastern Europe study: dietary patterns and their association with socio-demographic factors in the Lithuanian urban population of Kaunas city
TLDR
Dietary patterns of people with good self-rated health and university education were healthier than among people with lower education and poorer health, and nutrition education efforts should focus on improving food diversity.
Portuguese households’ diet quality (adherence to Mediterranean food pattern and compliance with WHO population dietary goals): trends, regional disparities and socioeconomic determinants
TLDR
The decreasing adherence to a Mediterranean food pattern and the diminishing compliance with World Health Organization dietary goals show that Portuguese households have reduced their diet quality.

The DAFNE initiative: the methodology for assessing dietary patterns across Europe using household budget survey data
TLDR
The DAFNE databank, if properly expanded and exploited, could become a valuable tool for national food and nutrition policy planning across Europe and for the identification of groups at higher risk for developing nutrition-related conditions.
Disparities in food habits across Europe
TLDR
Daily individual food availability data, collected through the national household budget surveys (HBS) and harmonized in the context of the Data Food Networking project, were used to assess disparities in food habits of seven European populations and to evaluate dietary changes within a 10-year interval.
Food Consumption Patterns in a Mediterranean Region: Does the Mediterranean Diet Still Exist?
TLDR
The dietary patterns observed among the Balearic Islands population are in harmony with the actual dietary trends in Spain and other Mediterranean countries.
Dietary patterns in six European populations: results from EURALIM, a collaborative European data harmonization and information campaign
Objective: To determine and describe the extent to which European dietary data collected in disparate surveys can be meaningfully compared.Design: Seven independent population-based surveys from six
Diversity of dietary patterns observed in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) project
TLDR
There are considerable differences in food group consumption and dietary patterns among the EPIC study populations, and this large heterogeneity should be an advantage when investigating the relationship between diet and cancer and formulating new aetiological hypotheses related to dietary patterns and disease.
Dietary studies on two rural Italian population groups of the Seven Countries Study. 3. Trend of food and nutrient intake from 1960 to 1991
TLDR
The changes observed in 31 y in the diet of men from Crevalcore and Montegiorgio suggest the necessity in the longitudinal nutritional epidemiology studies particularly in rapidly changing societies to assess the trend of food intakes and the factors related to it.
Food habits in a southern Italian town (Nicotera) in 1960 and 1996: still a reference Italian Mediterranean diet?
TLDR
By 1996 the Nicotera diet approached that of an average Italian diet, whose characteristics fall short of a true Mediterranean diet, which may be responsible for an increased risk of CHD and cancer in the general population in the absence of other factors.
Gender, age, socio-demographic and lifestyle factors associated with major dietary patterns in the Spanish Project SUN (Seguimiento Universidad de Navarra)
TLDR
The profile of being a young, sedentary and single male was identified as the most likely to exhibit a departure from the traditional ‘Spanish-Mediterranean’ diet and follow a ‘Western’ dietary pattern.
European food availability databank based on household budget surveys: the Data Food Networking initiative.
TLDR
The application of the DAFNE methodology in developing a databank of standardized dietary data offers a realistic option for monitoring dietary habits in Europe and may additionally consider the undertaking of a pan-European individual dietary survey, in a sub-sample of the household budget population.
Seven unique food consumption patterns identified among women in the UK Women’s Cohort Study
TLDR
Classifying diets in more pragmatic terms than just nutrient intake should provide valuable insight into understanding complex diet-disease relationships and take account of the combinations of different food types that people naturally choose to use together.
