This tool is a paper-based, semi-quantitative food frequency questionnaire, which includes up to 105 food items. The questionnaire was developed to assess the usual daily intake of foods and nutrients in children aged 4 to 5 years old 6 months before the interview. This tool has been validated once in 2016.
This questionnaire is derived from an adult version of the questionnaire that has been previously validated among mothers of the children, and modified to include foods and portion sizes appropriate for children aged 4–5 years. The adult questionnaire is included on the Nutritools website and was a modified version from a previous FFQ based on a Harvard questionnaire. The specific food items included in the food groups were representative of the Spanish Diet.
