Acquire a Licence

Why do you need a licence to use the NutriSTEP® questionnaires?

The NutriSTEP® questionnaires are the products of substantial research and validation; they are copyrighted by the developers. In order to protect the integrity of the questionnaires and monitor their use, a formal licencing system has been established. This ensures that the questionnaires are used appropriately and clarifies everyone’s rights and liabilities. It also facilitates follow-up with users for possible improvements.

What is covered by the licence?

Both the Toddler and Preschool NutriSTEP®questionnaires are covered by the licence. The Preschooler NutriSTEP® is available in English, French, simplified Chinese, traditional Chinese, Punjabi, Spanish, Tamil, and Vietnamese. The Toddler NutriSTEP® is available in English, French and Spanish.
