The National Diet and Nutrition Survey (NDNS) rolling programme is a continuous, cross-sectional survey. It’s designed to collect detailed, quantitative information on the food consumption, nutrient intake and nutritional status of the general population aged 1.5 years and over living in private households in the UK. The survey covers a representative sample of around 1000 people per year. 
Public Health England (PHE) and the UK Food Standards Agency (FSA) jointly fund the UK NDNS. Under the current contract, government bodies in Wales and Northern Ireland are funding additional recruitment in their countries to allow them to report their own results.
