Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Accurately measuring consumption of food, drinks and supplements is an important first step in estimating nutrient intakes. While it can be fraught with challenges, assessing dietary intake remains an important facet of surveillance, epidemiological, clinical and intervention research. This issue will include original research and scientific perspectives on the assessment of dietary intake, including potential sources of error and strategies for addressing these to improve the estimation of dietary intakes.
