Special Considerations

This tool involved two types of 24 hour recalls: an 'unstructured' 24 hour recall consisting of a blank sheet of paper and a 'structured' 24hr recall containing ten pages with 7 detailed time periods on the amount and type of food consumed. However, it appears unlikely that any remaining copies of the tool are available.
