Feeding the future study (FEED)
About the study
Diets in the UK have seen large changes in recent years, with more of us adopting or experimenting with different eating habits, including flexitarian, vegetarian and vegan. But we know very little about what people following these different diets actually eat, or the motivations behind their choices.
Feeding the future study (FEED) is an online study that was set up to investigate contemporary plant-based diets in UK adults, and the motivations and personal characteristics associated with choosing these diets.
What does the study involve?
The FEED study includes a one-off online survey that should take about 20 minutes to complete. All UK residents aged 18 years or over with internet access and access to a computer, smart phone or tablet can take part in this study.
Who is involved in the study?
The co-ordinating centre is based in the Cancer Epidemiology Unit, Nuffield Department of Population Health, University of Oxford and is funded by the Wellcome “Our Planet Our Health” programme “Livestock, Environment and People (LEAP)”, and by the World Health Organization.
