2. Complete the core questionnaires
The core questionnaires that need to be completed every year concern:
- Your diet during 2 specific and randomly chosen days*
- Your physical activity habits
- Your alcohol, tobacco and drug consumption habits
- Your personal characteristics like your education
- Your physical and mental health
- Your financial access to food
*You will receive an email on each of these days. You will need to indicate all foods and beverages that you consumed the day before. The tool was conceived to help you remember what you ate the day before. Therefore, you do not need to write down everything you eat in advance!
The necessary time to complete all core questionnaires is about 1 hour. You will have 30 days from the moment of your registration to complete the questionnaires.
For many years, once per year, you will be invited to complete the core questionnaires. This is essential in order to observe the changes that will occur over time!
If you feel like it, you can also fill out additional questionnaire. These will take less than 20 minutes to complete. For example, the questionnaires could concern:
- Your food preferences
- Your nutrition knowledge
- Any other related topic
Of course, all questionnaires are important! However, you are not forced to complete them all. You can also withdraw yourself from the project at any moment.
