Research Tools

The REAL Kids Alberta evaluation of Grade 5 students included the following questionnaires:

  • Harvard Food Frequency Questionnaire for Children and Youth (a dietary assessment tool) to assess nutrient intake and dietary habits.
  • Student Survey to gather information from the students on physical activity, screen time, and recognition of Alberta Health and Wellness Programs.
  • Students from selected schools are also asked to wear a digital time-stamped pedometer for 7 days and complete an activity diary each day.

Parents were asked to complete a Home Booklet survey that determines parental support for healthy school environments and recognition of Alberta Health programs.

The principals of participating schools were asked to complete a Principal Survey on school environment, implementation of provincial programs, and recognition of Alberta Health programs.
