Analysis of research

Extracts from this document...


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 asked 20 people to get fair results. The 20 people I asked were mostly under 50 and did eat a balanced diet. I decided to use a broad range of dancers so I could see how dancing affected their diet. From my findings I can see that nearly all of the dancers ate healthily so my ready meal would have to be healthy to suit their needs.

My second piece of packaging was from a snack I thought might be suitable for a dancer. I used this piece of packaging to see what sort of designs they used and how to keep the product fresh. I also wanted to see what sort of things the packaging had to say such as company name, product name and nutritional information.
