NutritionQuest is a leader in the field of diet and physical activity assessment. We are the official source of the Block Food Frequency Questionnaire and other dietary and physical activity questionnaires developed under the guidance of Dr. Gladys Block. Block Assessment Tools are designed and tested for usability, and have a long history of validation in a variety of demographic subpopulations. Our questionnaires have been used in hundreds of research studies.
All Block Questionnaires and Screeners for assessment of diet and physical activity are available for administration in two different formats:
Purchase questionnaires and screeners in paper format. Administer them to your study subjects and return completed forms to NutritionQuest for processing. We'll scan them, calculate nutrient or physical activity estimates, and return the data to you in an electronic file suitable for statistical analysis. Individual reports for study subjects are also available.
All Block assessment tools are also available in an electronic format delivered via Data-on-Demand, which provides an online structure for integrated data collection, nutrient and physical activity analysis, and data management. The electronic questionnaires may be completed online for computer-assisted self-interviewing (CASI), and either online or offline for computer-assisted personal interviewing (CAPI).

We work with researchers to develop questionnaires and screeners tailored to their population or research question. We conduct analyses of the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) data to assist in answering specific research questions and as the basis for development of tailored tools.
Since our founding in 1993, we have continued to redesign and update our questionnaires, nutrient databases and analyses as new dietary and physical activity data have become available. Learn more about Our Company.
