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 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.

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.
