Abstract: We assessed trends in dietary intake according to gender and education using repeated cross-sectional, population-based surveys conducted between 1993 and 2012 in Geneva, Switzerland 17,263 participants, 52.0 ± 10.6 years, 48% male. In 1993-1999, higher educated men had higher monounsaturated fatty acids MUFA, carotene and vitamin D intakes than lower educated men, and the differences decreased in 2006-2012. In 1993-1999, higher educated women had higher fiber, iron, carotene, vitamin D and alcohol intakes than lower educated women, and the differences decreased in 2006-2012. Total energy, polyunsaturated fatty acids, retinol and alcohol intakes decreased, while mono-disaccharides, MUFA and carotene intake increased in both genders. Lower educated men had stronger decreases in saturated fatty acid SFA and calcium intakes than higher educated men: multivariate-adjusted slope and 95% confidence interval -0.11 -0.15; -0.06 vs. -0.03 -0.08; 0.02 g-day-year for SFA and -5.2 -7.8; -2.7 vs. -1.03 -3.8; 1.8 mg-day-year for calcium, p for interaction <0.05. Higher educated women had a greater decrease in iron intake than lower educated women: -0.03 -0.04; -0.02 vs. -0.01 -0.02; 0.00 mg-day-year, p for interaction = 0.002. We conclude that, in Switzerland, dietary intake evolved similarly between 1993 and 2012 in both educational groups. Educational differences present in 1993 persisted in 2012.
