Tool Information: KiGGS FFQ "What do you eat"
|Food Groups||Usual; Retrospective||4 Weeks||Food Frequency Questionnaire||No||Detailed Information||Web Link|
This self-administered, semi-quantitative FFQ was developed at the Robert Koch Institute to assess the usual intake of several food groups in the German National Health Interview and Examination Survey for Children and Adolescents (KiGGS 2003-2006). It included questions on the frequency and the amount of 45 food items as well as additional questions. The FFQ was validated against a modified diet history interview (DISHES) in 2011.
The main purpose of the FFQ was to rank participants (children and adolescents) according to their food intake, therefore absolute dietary intake is not estimated by the questionnaire.
The software DISHES has been used in different versions for several surveys in Germany (GeNuS 98, NVS II, EsKiMo I and II).
Instructions on use
Short instructions for participants are provided in the study.
Instructions on how the dietary data was analysed can be found in the publications under additional material
