To help improve the quality, consistency and comparability of dietary data in epidemiological and clinical studies, DIET@NET aims to:

  • establish expert consensus on best practice guidelines for the collection and analysis of dietary intake data in population and clinical studies;
  • create an interactive web-site, nutritools.org, to guide researchers to an e-library of validated, expert-reviewed Dietary Assessment Tools (DATs);
  • provide online access to DATs with, where possible, an online facility for data entry and ‘real time’ food/nutrient analysis;
  • develop a Food Questionnaire creator and provide links to useful dietary assessment resources.
