    the chart contains information on men women and children who consumed five portions of fruit and vegetables per day, in the Uk between 2001-2008.

    between 2001-2003, the percentage of men women and children that consumed fruits and vegetables stayed permanent with just over 15% and just over 10%, respectively. throughout the year’s the percentage of women that consumed fruits and vegetables had increased: in 2001, they were just over 20% of women and by 2006 it reached its peak of around 35%.

  4. The bar chart below shows the percentage of British people (men,women and children) who ate fruits and vegetables per day in a period of seven years from 2001 to 2008.
    Generally, for every given year, more women ate fruits and vegetables, followed by the men, and then the children.
    The percentage of men and children remained constant for the first three years, while that of the women kept on increasing in a seemingly constant rate. This increment in the percentage of women continued in the subsequent years until it got to its peak at the 5th year (2006), after which the percentage experienced a decline at almost the same rate with which it increased, in the last two years.
    Again for the men and the children, after experiencing the constant percentage for the first three years, their percentages in the subsequent years followed the same pattern of increment and decrement as that of the women.

  5. sandamalee says:

    The bar graph illustrates the percentage of people in UK that consume five portions of fruits and vegetables between the year 2001 to 2008.The x axis depicts the percentage values of people in the three different categories male,female and children while y axis shows the relavent years.
    overall it can be seen that females were the highest consumers of appropriate amount and fruits and vegetables while males were lagging behind.However the children had shown a much less preference towards healthy food. Fuerthermore there has been a positive trend with rising consuption till the year 2006 but depicted a decline during the following years. Moreover sadly as a whole, less than one third of each category indulged in healthy eating.
    In further elaboration in 2001 around 21percent of females consumed adequate fruits and vegetables and it showed a gradual increment to peak toapproximately 35% by 2006. Consequently the values slightly declined to 30 percent by2008.
    In comparison to females much lesser percentage of males and children were into healthy eating amounting to around 17% and 12% respectively. Apart from that both categories showed a similar trend with static percentages upto 2003 followed by a steady increase upto 2006 where around 27% males and 24% of kids consumed the recommended amounts.Although there was a slight rise in the percentage of children opting for fruits and vegetables the percentage of males remained the same.Eventualy both these groups showed a slight reduction to end up at one fourth of male population andaround 24% of children obtaining proper nutrition through fruits and vegetables.

  6. Jing Yang says:

    The chart below illustrates the percentage of British people (men, women and children) whose daily diet include 5 portions of fruits and vegetables from 2001 to 2008, over a period of 8 years.
    Overall, females consumed a higher amount of fruits and vegetables than males and kids. The obvious increase in intake of referred food can be observed among each group of people during the given period.
    In the first year (2001), greens and fruits eaten by women accounted for about 25% of the population, followed by men at 16% and kids at only 10%. The figures for latter two remained nearly unchanged in the next three years (from 2001 to 2003), whereas patterns for women increased to over 25% by 2003 and this upward trend continued steadily in the following four years, finally reaching a high at approximately 35% by 2006 before dropping to 30% by 2008. Similarly, greens and fruits also gained increasing popularity among the other two groups ever since 2003. Specifically, both figures from males and kids reached their peaks by 2007, at 27% and 25%, respectively, then they declined in the final year (2008), by less than 2% for each.
    On the whole, all groups consumed a significant higher quantity of fruits and vegetables over this 8 years. Though women always stood at the top, in terms of healthy food mentioned, men and kids managed to reduce the difference in consumption.

  7. Lady Jane says:

Similarly, the consumption pattern for the children showed the same trend but stood at 25% in 2007, while a decline of about 2% is seen in 2008.
    However, the women’s consumption maintained a steady growth of about 3% year on year for seven years (2001 to 2006), unlike those of men and children.
    There is a significant drop of approximately 2% in the consumption pattern of everyone in 2008 compared to other years.

  8. The chart below gives information about the proportion of people who ate fruits and vegetables in a day, in the UK, over a seven year period from 2001 to 2008.
    Overall, it can be seen that women had the highest percentage of people who ate fruits and vegetables, in contrast to that of children which is the least.
    The proportion of women who ate fruits and vegetables initially stood at just over a fifth in 2001, which is the highest compared to that of men and children. This is then followed by a gradual rise over the years, and then peaked at over 30% in 2006 which remained the highest among the three.

Whereas, that of children stood at over 10%. Both experienced a steady increase through the years, however,lower than that of women. This then preceded by a peak at about 27% in the year 2006 and 2007. However, that of children reached the highest point at 26% in 2007.

After which, it slightly increased, reached its peak in 2006 at 18% and 28% respectively then it equally declined in the later years.

  12. The given bar chart provides information on the rate of men, women and children in the UK,who ate a variety of fruits and vegetables daily over a period of 8 years.

    Overall, the women indulged in this lifestyle more frequently during this period. The men and children started out lower but gained increasing popularity over time, with the children recording the least frequency amongst the 3 categories.

    Initially, the women recorded just a little above 20% in 2001,this rose steadily annually, reaching it’s highest point of above 30% in 2006 before decreasing to about 25% in 2008. The men started out at about 15% in 2001, and remained thesame over the next 2 years , followed by a sharp increase per year to just above 25% in 2006 and 2007 before experiencing a decrease in 2008.
    This habit was least popular amongst the children, plateauing at just above 10% for three consecutive years. This was followed by an upward trend annually, hitting its highest and lowest rate in 2007 and 2008 consecutively.

  13. The bar chart represents the proportion of British men, women, and children who consumed five portions of fruit and vegetables daily from the years 2001 to 2008.
    Overall, women has been the highest consumer of fruit and vegetables while the least portion was consumed mainly by children. It can also be noted that men, women, and children had an upward and downward trend over the given period.

This significantly increased in the following years, having the highest amount of fruit and greens intake to almost around 35% in the year 2006. But this gradually dropped to almost 5% during the final year in 2008.
    Meanwhile, there has been a plateau between men and children’s consumption of fruit and vegetable and this was during the first three years, from 2001 up to 2003. Children accounted to just around 12% in those three years while men had roughly around 17%.They both had a gradual improvement in the succeeding years that in 2006 and 2007, men had their maximum amount of edibles to nearly 28%, whereas children had 25%.

  14. Isaac Oware-Arthur says:

    The bar chart gives information about the proportion of men, women and children who consumed five portions of fruits and vegetables in the UK over a period of eight years (2001 to 2008)

    Overall, the percentage of men, women and children who are the five portions of fruits and vegetables have all increased. Again, British women consumed more fruits and vegetables compared to men and children.

In 2004, it increased sharply to about 21%, reaching a peak of almost 27% between 2006 and 2007. By 2008, it had fallen slightly to more or less 26%. In the same way, consumption by children was also stable from 2004 to 2006. It showed an upward trend from 2004 to 2006 and boomed at 26% in 2007. In 2008, it declined minimally to almost a quarter.

    The chart shows that the consumption of vegetables and fruits by children is constant for first three years from 2001 to 2003 and then gradually increase to about 25% from 12% and then decreases to about 24% in 2008. The fruits and vegetables consumption by men follows the same trend with higher percentage of people except it is constant in 2006 and 2007 to about more then 25%. the consumption trend is different for women, it is gradually increasing from around 22% in 2001 to more than 30% in 2006 and then decreases to around 30% in 200.

  20. CIHAN SUNAY says:

    The Bar Chart above demonstrates the percentages of consumption of vegetables and fruits more than 5 times in a day subgrouped people by women, children, men on the Y axis, according to years between 2001-2008 on the X-axis.
    If we just look 2001 and 2008 we can say there is big difference in consumption. Although it seems linear graphic at first glance, fluctuations need to be considered for absolute recognition of the columns. It might be hard to differentiate behaviors subgroup vice by just overlook so that we need to examine a little bit detail.
    Let’s go detail for all 3 type, First of all we see that whatever the year is Women always comes first, men are second and the children last. Children for 3 years kept their level, then constantly upgraded their percentage until 2008 but around 2007 and 2008 we see a breaking point to downward, Men have almost the same data with children but Women data show the breaking point was in 2006 after getting up year by year.
    We can conclude that people eat more vegetables and fruits than in 2001.

    The chart illustrates the proportion of men, women and children that consumed five parts of fruits and vegetables each day in the UK from a time period of 2001 to 2008
    Overall, it is clear that rate of consumption of fruits and vegetables had an upward trend in each category of people with children having the lowest and women having the highest consumption rates throughout the period.
    The proportion of children started a little above 10% in 2001, maintaining that range through to 2007 with about 17%, 19%, 22% and 25% respectively. It finally ended the period with about 22% in 2008.
    The rate of men that ate fruits and vegetables had almost similar trend with the children, beginning the period in 2001 with about 17% through to 2003 before making a steady increase from 2004 to 2007 with about 22%, 24%, 28% respectively. It declined a bit just below 30% in 2008.
    2²% of women consumed fruits and vegetables in 2001. It maintained an uprise trend throughout the period with about 24% in 2002. 26%, 29% and 30% respectively in 2003, 2004 and 2005 respectively before reaching its peak in 2006 at a value greater than 30% and ending the period with about 31% and 30% respectively in 2007 and 2008

    The bar graph beneath, illustrates how some number of British consumed vegetables and fruits daily over a 7 year period, (2001 to 2008) in five portions.

  33. The diagram depicts the proportion of population who ate five different kinds of fruits and vegetables per day in the British from 2001 to 2008 .

    It is clear that women were having fruits and vegetables in higher percentage among three of the group, each year where as children were having less.Men were having medium compare to women and children.

    By the 2001 to 2003 there was same level of proportion of men who ate vegetables and fruits that is above one 5th similarly children were also in constant level of below one 5th. But there was slowly increase in the proportion of women (by 5th to a quarter). Then from the year 2004 to 2006 there was increment in all three people (children: 17% to 22%; Men: 20%-26% approximately and women 30% and above. But in 2007 and 2008 there was decreased rate of women (below 30%) where as there was steady position of men and children.

  34. The chart demonstrate the ratio of portions which had consumed by the people in the UK between the years 2001 and 2008 per a day.
    Overall, the women had consumed of protions more than men and children

    The bar chart illustrates the proportion of men, women and children who consumed five portions of fruit and vegetables per day in the United Kingdom over a seven-year period from 2001 to 2008.

    Overall, women accounted for the majority of consumers, while children ate the least fruit and greens. Moreover, all three categories saw a peak which occurred in 2006 for adults and 2007 for children.

    The figure for women started at just over 20 percent and steadily rose up to about 35 percent by 2006. It then saw a slight fall reducing its value by about 5 percent in the last two years considered.

    On the other hand, the percentage of men and children remained constant over the first three years considered. They then begun a stable upward trend peaking to their highest levels (well over one in four in 2006 and one quarter in 2007 respectively). In the last years, similarly to what happened for women, the proportion of men and children slightly decreased, ending the period at a few points lower than the highest for their categories.
