Food intake in Denmark for age groups 0-65 years.



The data contains:

a) Main food groups (ingredient level, classification used in EPIC)

b) Nutrients

c) Nutrient supplements

d) Fish and other seafood by species

The data is based on the national food consumption studies which were carried out in 1995 [1]. Since 2000, the study of Danish dietary habits has been a continuously ongoing survey [2] and from 2003, 800 individuals are sampled every year for participation. The first round of consumption data in the continuing survey were collected and reported for 2000-02. In 1985, a retrospective dietary history method was used to assess the Danish diet. In 1995, a 7-day food record was used. Since 2000, the same 7-day food record has been used.

Age groups are: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4-5, 6-9, 10-13, 14-17, 18-24, 25-34, 35-44, 45-54, 55-64
