Title: Pilot study in the view of a Pan-European dietary survey - adolescents, adults and elderly
Issue Date: 2013
Abstract: The project was performed in the context of EFSA's plan for a pan-European data collection,namely. "What's on the Menu in Europe" ("EU Menu") survey. The goals of the PILOT-PANEUproject were to develop, test and evaluate the applicability of tools and procedures for conducting adietary survey including adolescents, adults and elderly people, based on 2 x 24-hr recall performedwith EPIC-Soft methodology. The Manual, protocols, questionnaires and other documents assistingthe implementation of the surveys were developed jointly by all partners; five participants prepared thecountry-specific files. Approximately 25% of picture series selected for estimation of the amount offood consumed was tested, involving persons aged 10-74 years, with perception andconceptualisation-memory methods within validation studies performed by five partners. The studyrevealed that the picture series can be best used for foods of similar appearance and density. The 2x24-hr recall dietary surveys were carried out by four partners involving 1012 interviewed persons selectedwith the combination of random and convenience sampling. The Greek partner carried out thecomparative analysis of the results of the 2011 national nutrition survey and those obtained with thenew Hellenic Health Foundation nutrition tool. The response rate was generally low, except inBulgaria, suggesting that the highest rate can be achieved if the random samples are selected incooperation with the National Statistical Offices taking into account the varying practices of handlingconfidential personal information. The present version of EPIC-Soft methodology tested had severalshortcomings which would likely be eliminated with the development of the e-StandardisedMethodologies Platform (e-SMP). The consortium made a number of recommendations for theimprovement and further development of the tools and procedures. Assuming that the recommendedmodifications are made, the tools and procedures developed and tested are considered applicable forthe EFSA "EU Menu" survey.
