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.

 

FENS, Dublin

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.
