The RFS was assessed using a questionnaire related to the previous 12 months. Forty-six foods or food groups corresponding to recommended food groups were included: grains (1), legumes (4), vegetables (17), seaweeds (2), fruits (12), fish (5), dairy products (3), nuts (1), and tea (1). The questions have structured answer choices of yes/no to whether each food item was consumed at least once a week. The daily frequency of meals is also recorded. Participants are allocated a score of 1 if they consumed the recommended food at least weekly or ate three meals daily on a regular basis.
