Hyderabad: The city-based National Institute of Nutrition (NIN) has launched an online e-survey to generate a national level participatory real time data on food intakes, dietary habits and health indicators for mapping of nutrition and health status of people across the country.
The Institute has invited all age groups to visit the NIN website (https://www.esurvey.nin.res.in) to fill-in a simple e-survey form voluntarily.
“Monitoring of food intakes, nutrition and health status of population should be dynamic in nature to enable the planners, implementers and developmental partners to revise and design new nutrition and health intervention programmes,” said Dr Hemalatha R, Director of ICMR-NIN.
There are two types of e-survey forms available on NIN’s website including one for adults above 18 years to collect self-reported data on nutrition status, food frequency and intakes, and the second form for parents/caregivers of children below two years of age, wherein they are expected to fill in the information related to infant and young child feeding.
Immediately after filling the e-survey, respondents can get a quick glance of their or child’s nutritional status based on the data provided.
