Respondents to the Year 7 Health Survey were asked to report how many times they ate discretionary snacks like chocolate, lollies, cake, chips, ice cream and sweet biscuits in the last seven days.
The majority of respondents who consumed discretionary snacks one or more times per week has remained stable between 2020 (93.6%) and 2021 (95.5%). In 2021, males (94.0%) were less likely to report consuming discretionary snacks one or more times per week than females (96.6%), however this difference was not statistically significant.
2013 Australian Dietary Guidelines recommends limiting intake of foods and drinks containing saturated fat, added salt, added sugars and alcohol. For more information, visit: https://www.eatforhealth.gov.au/sites/default/files/content/The%20Guidelines/n55f_children_brochure.pdf
For the purpose of reporting the Year 7 Health Survey data on HealthStats, if the 95% confidence intervals of the estimates do not overlap, they are considered to be significantly different.
Persons includes male, female, other and refused sex respondents and may not always add to the sum of male and female.
