Abstract: Trends in food availability in Switzerland were assessed using the Food and Agricultural Organization food balance sheets for the period 1961–2007. A relatively stable trend in the daily caloric supply was found: 3545 kcal/day in 1961 and 3465 kcal/day in 2007. Calories associated with carbohydrates decreased (slope±s.e.: 1.1±0.2 kcal/day/year), namely regarding cereals ( 2.9±0.6 kcal/day/year) and fruit ( 1.5±0.1 kcal/day/year), while the availability of sugars increased (1.2±0.5 kcal/day/ year). In 1961, protein, fat, carbohydrates and alcohol represented 10.6, 33.5, 50.0 and 5.9% of total caloric supply, respectively; in 2007, the values were 10.8, 40.3, 43.7 and 5.2%. In 1961, palm, groundnut and sunflowerseed oil represented 3.4, 30.7 and 5.3% of total vegetable oils, respectively; in 2007, the values were 10.4, 3.7 and 31.6%. We conclude that between 1961 and 2007 total caloric availability remained relatively stable in Switzerland; the health effects of the increased and differing fat availability should be evaluated.
