It's official - the British diet is getting healthier

The Guardian

By James Randerson, science correspondent

It might be every child's favourite treat, but ice cream is officially on the slide. Yet wholemeal bread is definitely back in vogue - poised to become more popular than sliced white loaves - according to an annual survey that provides a snapshot of the nation's weekly shopping basket.
Healthy options such as fresh fruit and vegetables, wholemeal bread, yoghurt, and semi-skimmed milk are on the rise.
Consumption of alcohol, white bread and ice cream - down more than 8% - are decreasing. The report exposes wide variations between different parts of the country and different income groups.
