NutriSTEP® (Nutrition Screening Tool for Every Preschooler) is a fast and simple way to assess eating habits and identify nutrition problems early in young children 3–5 years of age. The NutriSTEP® questionnaire includes 17 items covering: food and nutrient intake, physical growth, developmental and physical capabilities, physical activity, food security and the feeding environment. It is intended for use by community professionals and should be completed by the child’s parent or primary caregiver, whoever is most knowledgeable about the child’s eating and other health habits.
