The Short Nutritional Assessment Questionnaire (SNAQ) is a (validated) measuring tool for determining the extent of a patient’s malnutrition. The tool comprises three questions, each of which is assigned a score. The total score determines the extent of malnutrition.
The SNAQ helps to recognize and treat malnutrition at an early stage.
Three varieties of the measuring tool were developed for different care settings: hospitals, nursing and retirement homes and independently living seniors. This concept describes the tool intended for the hospital setting.


The SNAQ score is used to determine the extent of malnutrition or the risk of malnutrition. To treat malnutrition quickly and effectively, it is important to identify the malnutrition at an early stage.

Evidence Base

To determine the extent of malnutrition, SNAQ has a number of tools, validated for different settings:

  • The 65+ SNAQ was developed for the group of seniors (> over 65) who live at home and who may make use of care at home.
  • The SNAQRC (Short Nutritional Assessment Questionnaire for Residential Care) is available for screening for malnutrition in nursing and retirement homes.
  • The STRONGkids tool is available for screening for malnutrition among children.

Patient Population

The SNAQ is meant for patients over 18 years of age who are staying at the hospital.
