The Centre for Food in The Hague (Netherlands)
provides charts of recommended quantities
of foodstuff for children, teenagers
and adults. We developed an inter-active
query by lining up the daily nourishment
quantities, necessary for a healthy
and moderately active person of 12
years old or older.
The last group (that eats a varied
menu) is to be seen as the
subset of consumers who stick to the
minimum recommendations of the dutch
Centre for Food.
Start of the questionnaire. NB: use for the tests on the left Internet Explorer instead of Mozilla and allow "active content".
|We show you the recommended
daily quantities of food. If, on an
average, your daily consumption meets
these quantities, then tick the boxes
corresponding with your choices. If not:
don't. After the last statement you
automatically get to see the result about
the degree to which your eating habits
agree with the recommended quantities
of each of the four target groups.
When you make a choice, the percentage of agreement with recommended quantity may rise. No meaning may be attributed to the height of the percentage. However the mutual relationship does bear meaning: more important choices score higher in the test.
It goes for each of the
four groups that when you score 100%
under "varied menu",
you get down sufficient nutrients. As
for lower scores, 100% certainty can
not be given. In that case and in order
to obtain personal advice, either consult
a centre for food (for vegetarian nutrition)
in your country, or a dietician. Moreover
you can always ask your physician to
have your blood examined on containing
