Tool Information: FFQ (Energy intake, 4-6 year olds)
|Energy||Usual; Retrospective||4 weeks||Food Frequency Questionnaire||No||Detailed Information||Web Link|
This tool is a semi-quantitative, self administered food frequency questionnaire consisting of 71 food items. The tool was designed to validate the FFQ in terms of energy intake in young children against the doubly labelled water method as reference.
A two-step selection procedure was implemented consisting of calculating the percentage contribution of each food group to the energy intake, and adding food groups that contributed to more variation in energy intake. This enabled the selection of food groups relevant to the energy intake of children.
