Abstract
 
Inadequate dietary habit is a common issue in Pakistani school going children which leads to poor nutritional status. Nutritional status can be determined by questionnaire whereas no valid and reliable tool exists to determine dietary patterns of school going Pakistani children. To determine the dietary pattern of school going Pakistani children, a questionnaire was designed by the title of Dietary Pattern Inventory to collect data in ordinal scale. However, questionnaire needs validation. This pilot study was conducted with the aim to validate the designed questionnaire.
