The General Nutrition Knowledge Questionnaire consists of 50-items divided into four independent sections, each assessing a different aspect of nutrition knowledge: Dietary recommendations; Food groups; Healthy Food choices and Diet, disease and weight management. Both validity and reliability studies have been carried out on the questionnaire as a whole and each section independently, thus enabling each one to be used as a separate measure if required. Each item carries one point for a correct answer.
