Hong Kong has insufficient dairy intake
Hong Kong Family Health Survey showed that its people has not been consuming enough dairy products like milk.
Based on the results of the survey, more than ninety percent of parents in Hong Kong and their children do not meet the dairy intake recommendation.
This, while average number of hours that parents spend on electronic devices for leisure is 44 times of the number of hours they spend on exercise.
“Parents should reform their lifestyle habits and set a good example for their children,” the result said.
The result of the survey was revealed during the World Milk Day.
Since 2001, June has been called “World Milk Day,” a day on which the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (“FAO”) promotes the goodness of milk.
In this connection, FrieslandCampina (Hong Kong) Limited commissioned the Hong Kong Baptist University Centre for the Advancement of Social Sciences Research to conduct “Hong Kong Family Health Survey” for Hong Kong World Milk Day 2018.
A total of 429 respondents between the ages of 21 and 70 were surveyed to study the diet and exercise habits of their children, themselves and elders at home, including their daily dietary and dairy intake, exercise habits and number of hours they used electronic devices for leisure.
The objective of the survey is to help establish healthy lifestyles by raising awareness among Hong Kong families on balanced nutrition and moderate exercise for family members of different age groups.
