Improving dietary assessments, together

Collaborating for a better future

Since the creation of myfood24® at the University of Leeds in 2014, it has always supported research in world-leading leading universities and organisations. These collaborations have helped to build a thriving community of myfood24 users, all with a common goal: to help reduce diet-related disease, globally. Now, overseen by Dietary Assessment Ltd, myfood24 has more collaborations than ever.

University of Leeds

Creation and validation of myfood24

Originally conceived by Prof Janet Cade at the University of Leeds, myfood24 has always had close ties with the university. From its initial creation to the usability testing and validation, the University of Leeds has been the home for it all.

Dietary Assessment Ltd continues the fruitful and collaborative relationship with the university in both research and teaching environments.

University of Bonn

Creation of myfood24 for Germany

Since 2017, Dietary Assessment Ltd has been collaborating with researchers at the University of Bonn to support their research into dietary intake. This relationship has included the translation of myfood24 into German and the addition of a tailored German food database.

Not only has this meant that the university can use myfood24 for future research but it has also lead to the development of a collaborative hub of organisations in Germany.

Danish Cancer Society

Creation of myfood24 for Denmark

In 2017, Dietary Assessment Ltd worked closely with with researchers at the Danish Cancer Society to create a country-specific version of myfood24. This will be used to help monitor the dietary intake of 50,000 participants in the 'Diet, Cancer and Health - Next Generations' cohort.

Since then, we have been working closely with the Danish Cancer Society to support the adoption of myfood24 by other organisations across the country.

University of Sheffield

Creation of sip and tube feeds database

In 2018, researchers from the University of Sheffield collaborated with Dietary Assessment Ltd to create a new myfood24 database consisting of specialised sip and tube feeds for individuals unable to consume solid foods.
