Research project: A UK on-line 24h dietary recall tool for population studies: development, validation and practical application (myfood24)

Currently Active: 

The aim of the project is to design a new online method to collect dietary intake, assess its validity and feasibility and compare it to the traditional methods of measuring diet to see if the new method is comparable or better.

The new tool will help to potentially improve the way dietary intake is measured in population studies aimed at gaining more information about how diet is related to disease. It is also likely to be more cost-effective by saving time and money on deriving nutrient values which will be automatically generated by linking this tool to a 75 thousand item UK food database.
