Most people reported changes in their alcohol related behaviours during COVID-19 restrictions (Table 4, p.29). Almost 30% reported drinking more frequently and those 24- 44yrs were the most likely to report this (35.2%) compared with only 16% in 65+yrs. However, the amount of binge drinking (drinking more standard drinks on a drinking occasion) was not greatly increased with only 4.6% participants reporting drinking more on a single drinking occasion (Table 4).

• Almost one-in-three participants reported weight gain
• 25-44 age group more susceptible to ‘COVID kilos’
• One-in-five worried about having enough food
• Charities saw an increase in families in need of food
• Children were acutely exposed to experiencing hunger in the absence of school meals
