Tracking Nutrition Trends (TNT)
Canada’s longest-standing consumer-focused nutrition research poll

In 1989, the former National Institute of Nutrition (NIN) launched the TNT series to investigate the self-reported knowledge, attitudes and behaviours of the adult Canadian population with respect to food and nutrition. The Canadian Council of Food and Nutrition (CCFN) continued this legacy until 2011. Each wave of the TNT series built on the previous findings and tracked changes over time. In 2011 CCFN ceased operations and donated its assets, including the TNT program, to the Canadian Foundation for Dietetic Research (CFDR).

In addition to tracking questions on nutrition knowledge, attitudes and behaviours, later TNT surveys were designed to obtain additional information on the importance of emerging factors in Canadians’ food choices and eating behaviours – factors such as nutrition labelling and out-of-home foods and eating habits. 

Over time, the intent of the TNT series has remained the same: to provide policy makers, health professionals, academics and the food industry with insight into Canadians’ perspectives on the importance of nutrition and their self-reported knowledge and behaviours. The TNT reports provide insight in formulating policies, developing communications on the role of food and nutrition in health, directing further nutrition research projects and making decisions on the development and marketing of food products.
