The Platform for Evaluating Athlete Knowledge in Sports – Nutrition Questionnaire

Athletes will find the Platform to Evaluate Athlete Knowledge of Sports – Nutrition Questionnaire (PEAKS-NQ) useful for understanding where their knowledge gaps may lie, which can then be addressed through education.



The PEAKS-NQ is a questionnaire that provides a rapid assessment of sports nutrition knowledge. It has been tested extensively in Australian athletes prior to its release. It contains two sections – 1. general nutrition, which assesses understanding of food groups and nutrients, and 2. sports nutrition, which examines comprehension of training, competition and recovery nutrition, strategies for changing body composition and specialised athlete issues such as supplement risk. Upon completion, you will automatically receive feedback on areas where you performed well and where your knowledge may not be as strong.
