Introduction

Analysis of research Questionnaire I carried out a questionnaire to see what dancers liked to eat and what they should eat in order to get enough energy etc to dance.

I also wanted to see what sort of things the packaging had to say such as company name, product name and nutritional information. I also found out that most ready meals were between �1.50-�3.00 so I'm aiming for my product to cost around about �2. ...read more.
