There's been lots of great nutrition and diet conferences this October, and Janet's been at quite a few!
Over the past month Prof Janet Cade's been busy discussing the importance of accurate, valid and reliable dietary assessment tools at a number of events and conferences including: FENS, BDA Health and Nutrition and Wheat-Health. Read on to find out more.
Prof Cade gave several enthusiastic and engaging talking at FENS this year discussing: the evaluation of new methods for dietary intake assessment at the ILSI Symposium; how diets in Europe need improvement using findings from national surveys and on-pack food information; and finally a talk on the lessons learnt from the Nutritools partnership - a website created to help guide the research community to choose suitable and validated dietary assessment tools.
Whilst at FENS Prof Cade also presented a poster on the validation of myfood24 using nutrient biomarkers and how it produces similar results to a traditional interviewer administered recall. The published paper detailing the study can be accessed here.
BDA Public Health and Nutrition Event, Leeds
Prof Cade and the myfood24 were lucky enough to be one of the sponsors at the BDA Yorkshire's Public Health and Nutrition: From Strategy to Seeing Clients study day, discussing how myfood24 can support dietetic practice and student teaching.
Wheat Diversity and Human Health, Turkey
Istanbul was the setting for the Wheat-Health Conference where Janet gave a talk on the evidence of the health impacts of wheat, from an epidemiological perspective.
