Such questionnaires are directed to the dietary exposure of conceptual interest in most applications, which is average intake over an extended period of time. This chapter discusses the design of food frequency questionnaires. Topics covered include the food list, frequency response action, options for portion size information, computation of nutrient intakes, and the use of empirical predictor scores.
