People living in Scotland are increasingly aware that they should be eating more fruit and vegetables and less salt, according to a survey.
The message of healthy eating is said to be getting through
Research by the Food Standards Agency (FSA) also found that a growing number of consumers are concerned about hygiene in catering outlets.
The trends were discovered in the latest FSA survey into Scottish attitudes towards food.
It is the fourth year the agency has examined attitudes towards food.
The results showed that two thirds of people in Scotland on average eat fish while nine out of 10 confirmed they regularly eat fresh fruit or vegetables.
A third of those consumers questioned told researchers they have a healthier diet than they did a year ago, but only a quarter of those surveyed were found to actually eat the recommended daily amount of five portions of fruit and vegetables a day.
Fewer people confessed to eating "TV dinners" but almost all of the 3,000 questioned admitted to doing all their food shopping in supermarkets.
Women were also found to be more concerned about food safety than men, with people more aware of their diet between the ages of 25 and 66.
