Nutrition assessment is multifaceted, involving detailed information on dietary, anthropometric, body composition, clinical, and physical components. The reliability and practicality of these components for making a nutritional diagnosis can be influenced by factors such as age, ethnicity and health status, the cost and equipment requirements, and the skill level of the clinician. As the technological application of the assessment of nutritional status advances, there is a need to validate these new tools in terms of the level of detail and accuracy they add to diagnosing nutritional status in individuals and population groups. It is also necessary to consider if more detailed nutrition assessments impact on the health outcomes of individuals and groups.
The aim of this Special Issue is to update knowledge on current best practice in nutrition assessment methodologies, both those that are well established and newer novel approaches. We welcome different types of manuscript submissions, including original research articles and up-to-date reviews (systematic reviews and meta-analyses).
