Monitoring Food Habits in the Australian Population using Short Questions

There is a growing interest in assessing food habits and population nutrition by Commonwealth, state and territory health departments and by non-government and commercial organisations. This usually takes the form of special purpose surveys, or monitoring, where surveys using a similar design and dietary assessment methods are repeated over time. These have a broad range of objectives but frequently include short questions to assess food habits and breastfeeding practices.
