Whoever you are, whatever you think – your opinion is important to us. To get a truly representative picture of the UK we’ve chosen your address at random from the Postcode Address File. This means we can’t replace you with anyone else.
By taking part, you will help us understand how our diet is changing, and provide vital information to help create a healthier nation.
We’re Britain’s largest independent social research agency. For the last 50 years we’ve worked on behalf of government and charities to find out what people really think about important social issues and how Britain is run.
