The Diet and Nutrition Survey of Infants and Young Children (DNSIYC) was commissioned to provide detailed information on the food consumption, nutrient intakes and nutritional status of infants and young children aged 4 up to 18 months living in private households in the UK.

DNSIYC provides the only source of high quality nationally representative data on the types and quantities of foods consumed by the 4 to 18 month age group, from which estimates of nutrient intakes are derived. This information will be used alongside data from the National Diet and Nutrition Survey (NDNS), which covers adults and children of all ages from 18 months, to provide a fuller picture of the diet, health and food safety of the nation, in supporting public health policy and food safety assessments.
