The Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food funded a two‐year project on “Constraints on freedom of dietary choice and their implications for the adoption and maintenance of healthy diets”. Part of this work included a study on the impact of changing income on dietary patterns, food intake and food preferences. Results suggest that alterations in food choices relevant to health promotion occur in people who have experienced a change in income although further study is necessary to explore the longer‐term results of these actions.
