Abt Associates supports this recommendation. Suggests some additions to proposed language might be needed. #1 Any sweet drinks, such as soft drinks/fizzy drinks/soda /chocolate drinks? suggest addition of "tea with sugar" and "drinks where sugar is added" . In many households surveys we have seen a high consumption of plan water, milk and chocolate drink (Horlicks, Ovaltine, Milo) where additional sugar is added and may not be captured if not specifically asked.

For #2 they are suggesting adding this "Any sweet junk foods, such as chocolates/ sweets/ candies/ sweet biscuits/pastries/cakes?" suggest adding buns/doughnuts (or local term) to this list
Any savory junk foods, such as crisps/chips/salted biscuits/instant noodles?" suggest adding pies/ fried snacks
