Interested in finding out your child’s dietary intake in more detail?
The Children’s Diabetes Centre will investigate what children and adolescents diagnosed with type 1 or type 2 diabetes are eating.
There has been very limited data on the dietary intake of children with T1D and T2D in Australia. We would like to fill some gaps in knowledge relating to dietary intake of children with diabetes.
Who can participate?
We are looking for:
children and adolescents aged between 2 and 18 years
who have type 1 or type 2 diabetes
What does participation involve?
You will receive an email with a link to complete the Australian Child and Adolescent Eating Survey Food Frequency Questionnaire (ACAES-FFQ) survey online. The ACAES-FFQ takes approximately 20 minutes to complete. Once you have completed the survey, an individual report is generated and emailed to you outlining your child’s average, daily dietary intake.
This information will allow dietitians working within the Diabetes clinics at Perth Children’s Hospital to review current practices to ensure the teaching and advice is relevant to young people living with T1D and T2D.
