Questionaire asking teenagers about omega 3

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Questionnaire asking teenagers about Omega 3 I have produced a questionnaire asking 10 teenagers about omega three, how much they have of it weekly, and more. Here is a preview of my questions and an explanation of why I have asked each one, and how it can help with my investigation. Q1. What is your age? I asked this question so that I know the group I am questioning are my target group, and that I can design the rest of my investigation to suit this age group. Q2. Where do you think omega 3 comes from? I have asked this question so that I can see what this age group already know about omega3. The results of this question will help me to understand what foods teenagers know omega 3 is in. This will help me choose what foods to put in my practicals, so can widen their knowledge of omega 3, trough the foods I put in the meals. ...read more.

I have asked this question to see if teenagers are getting enough omega three, and how this compares to the RDA. Like the question above, if I see from these results that teenagers are not getting enough, I will include a larger variety of food sin my practicals. This will also help me with my prediction that teenagers do not know of foods, other than fish, that contain omega 3. Q7. Out of the group of foods below, which do you think you get the most omega 3 from? This again will help me see what foods teenagers know have omega 3 in them. This question is quite easy, as one group is full of healthy foods, and one, non-healthy foods. This will hopefully help them distinguish which contains more omega 3. This will also help me prove my prediction that teenagers do not know of foods, other than fish, that contain omega 3. Q8. Do you think you could get more Omega 3 from supplements (omega 3 tablets) ...read more.

Conclusion

It will also tell me if they value omega 3 as much as they should, as if they say no, they are not, they probably value it and know what it can do. Questionnaire chart results Conclusion of Questionnaire Conclusion Conclusion Looking back to most of my conclusions of each chart, it seems results have been good, as teenagers are more aware of omega 3 than I thought. To prove one of my predictions, in this questionnaire I created a question asking teenagers to choose which group of foods they thought had the most omega 3. I did this to prove that teenagers are not aware of foods other than fish that contain omega 3. Results from this question show that teenagers do know what food are more likely to contain omega 3, proving my prediction wrong, but this is not bad news, as I have learnt that teenagers are aware of other foods that contain omega 3, other than fish. ...read more.
