Accurate reporting of food intake can be challenging and there are many factors that contribute, not least, the method by which the intake is recorded. In this free to access article, published in Proceedings of the Nutrition Society, Phyllis Stumbo from the University of Iowa explains the history of dietary assessment and reviews digital methods in improving food record accuracy.
