|Full Nutrient, Food Groups||Usual; Prospective||1 Day||Food Diary Estimated||No||Detailed Information||Web Link|
This tool is a paper based estimated food diary,comprising portion sizes that were estimated by participants through photographs. It is intended to measure the usual dietary intake of adults over 7 days. This tool has been validated three times.
It appears unlikely that any remaining copies of the tool are available. The EPIC-Norfolk study has printed 7-day diet diaries for use by other studies/projects. There is room left on the back and front of the A5 booklet to personalise the diary with your own logo, and/or notification of sponsors etc. We can provide the diaries for free but we will require you to pay postage costs. The diaries can be used with any data-entry program. Portion sizes of the photographs displayed can be provided.
Instructions on use
Instructions are printed in the beginning of the diary booklet. The researcher could complete the first day as an interviewed 24HR as a means of 'instruction'.
Instructions on how the dietary data was analysed can be found in the publication and following papers:
