Abstract:

Online survey among a panel of 1,750 French citizens on perceptions of food safety in infant foods, in relation with wider concerns. The survey is composed of 49 individual questions, all closed-ended, belonging to the following categories: - Status of the respondent: does she/he take care of children under the age of 3, with what status (parent, professional, ...). The former question serves as a filter allowing one to identify actual users of infant foods. - Use of ready-to-use infant foods, versus other types of foods: ready-to-use for the general public or home made. The regular use of organic food is also specified. - Priorities when buying infant food (not restricted to safety concerns). The question asked is ``What are your priorities when choosing an infant meal?'', with 9 items each evaluated on from `prioritary' to `non-essential': food balance, price, ease of use, allergen-free, contaminant-free, educating the child's taste, environment-friendly, adapted to the child's capabilities, and limiting waste. - General opinions about ready-to-use infant foods (not restricted to safety concerns). - Concerns about the microbiological safety of ready-to-use infant foods: * For which contaminants among the following items: bacteria that may cause digestive problems, bacteria that may cause severe poisoning, viruses, parasites, and unknown pathogens; to what extent, i.e. regular, occasional, or rare/no concern. * In which foods, among four types of food considered: sterilized baby food jars with vegetable and fish, powdered infant formula, pasteurized fruit compote, and infant cereals; to what extent on a Likert scale. - Concerns about the chemical safety of ready-to-use infant foods: * For which contaminants among the following items: contaminants from the environment (heavy metals, dioxins, etc.), from agricultural practices (pesticides, mycotoxins, etc.), from industrial processes (substances resulting from cooking, etc.), from packaging (plastics, etc.), fraudulently introduced contaminants, unknown harmful substances; to what extent, i.e. regular, occasional, or rare/no concern. * In which foods, among the four types mentioned above; to what extent on a Likert scale. - Socio-demographic profile. The survey was designed using the Limesurvey tool. It was then launched in December 2020 by the Crowdpanel polling company in order to ensure a representative sample of the French population. Answers to the survey, in csv format, contain 51 columns corresponding to the 49 individual questions complemented with answer id and duration
