Nutritional epidemiology research has great public health importance for surveillance purposes and to validate, evaluate and promote novel, evidence-based prevention strategies. The choice of the most appropriate methods for dietary assessment depends on the aims of the study, the type of data required, available resources and the population of interest. Although traditional methods are usually simpler and less expensive, the use of alternative methods, such as biomarkers or clinical indicators, might be useful for overcoming potential bias and to take into account individual variability in response to diet. In recent years, technological development has also offered solutions to address limitations of traditional dietary assessment methods for nutritional data collection and analysis.
This Special Issue of Nutrients, entitled "Dietary assessment in nutritional epidemiology: public health implications for promoting lifelong health", welcomes the submission of original research, narrative reviews, systematic reviews and meta-analyses that highlight the importance of nutritional epidemiology in the context of public health research.
Potential topics may include, but are not limited, to the development and validation of novel technologies, methods and biomarkers for dietary assessment and evaluating the associations between dietary patterns, diet quality and health outcomes.
