OBJECTIVE: To define the average food consumption per capita in the Czech population and to investigate food consumption development during the years of economic transition. DESIGN: Three studies based on the household budget survey (HBS) were conducted in the 1990s. The primary data originated from so-called diaries of reporting households loaned out from the Czech Statistical Office (CSO). The arranging of representative samples has been done and is guaranteed by the CSO. Complementary inquiry was conducted to supplement the HBS data. The average consumption of basic food groups is presented. SETTING: All regions of the Czech Republic. SUBJECTS: The primary data came from the years 1991, 1994 and 1997. The basic sample representing the Czech population included 420 households and was arranged with regard to the region, size and socio-economic type of households. RESULTS: The changes in food consumption during the 1990s were reflected, above all, in meat, milk and dairy products, added fats, fruit and beverages. The consumption of poultry meat, fish, fresh fruit and vegetables has increased. The proportion of added fats has changed in favour of vegetable fats. On the other hand, a negative feature may be the permanent reduction in milk consumption. CONCLUSION: Most of the changes in eating patterns that appeared in the Czech population after 1989 can be interpreted as positive ones.
