FASTFD indicates whether the Eating and Health Module respondent has purchased any prepared food from a deli, carry-out, delivery food, or fast food.

"Prepared foods from a deli" include ready-to-eat foods from a grocery store deli department, such as rotisserie chicken, pizza, sandwiches, and salads from a salad bar. Frozen foods, including frozen meals, are not considered prepared foods.

This information was collected as part of the Eating and Health Module of the ATUS interview. Analyses that include FASTFD should use EHWT as the weight.
