This week, Prof Janet Cade from the University of Leeds and Founder of Dietary Assessment attended the first international workshop on Innovative Technologies for Dietary Intakes Measurements in London.
Researchers and students from a range of backgrounds attended the event – all of whom were actively involved in the monitoring of dietary intake, developing associated technologies or conducting research studies. Key points discussed included the need to accurately monitor dietary intake, the challenges associated with this and new technical approaches.
Prof Janet Cade also presented a poster ‘Validation and further development of myfood24: an online 24-hour dietary assessment tool’ at the event. The poster included findings from a validation study published in BMC Medicine last month.
