The survey was designed to meet the aims of the National Diet and Nutrition Survey (NDNS) programme in providing detailed information on the current dietary behaviour and nutritional status of those aged 65 and over. The NDNS of people aged 65 and over was based on a sample of approximately 1,300 people living in the community and approximately 400 people living in institutions in Great Britain.
