Nutritools displays validated dietary assessment tools which have been published in peer reviewed journals as full manuscripts. Tools were initially identified through a systematic review of reviews. Additional tools were identified by international collaborators. Validated tools can be added to the website in the first instance by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org with details of the proposed tool to be added.
Nutritools does not recommend which Dietary Assessment Tool to use and is not responsible for the choice of tool, this decision is made by the researcher. The researcher needs to read and understand the Best Practice Guidelines in order to select the most appropriate tool.
The Best Practice Guidelines are provided only as guidance, intended to help the researcher in the design of their study.
It is encouraged that researchers using Nutritools seek research/nutritional/statistical expertise in the design of their study and the interpretation of their results.
Disclaimer and limitation of liability
Any actions taken or conclusions made based on the Dietary Assessment Tool output are the responsibility of the researcher.
The Food Questionnaire Creator has been linked to adapted McCance and Widdowson's The Composition of Foods Version 7 nutrient data. For converted tools in the Food Questionnaire Creator (e.g. CADET), this will be a different food database then the tool was originally designed with and although this gives access to more up to date nutritional information, the tool has not been validated with this database.
The Researcher is responsible for recruiting appropriate participants for their study and also obtaining informed consent from the participants.
