The choice of the appropriate tool for measuring dietary intake depends upon the purpose of the study. Diet is usually described in terms of its nutrient content. Typical food patterns, eating habits, and the use of specific foods and groups of foods can also describe diet.Many different methods can be used for assessing dietary intake; three of the most common are food frequency questionnaires, food records and twenty-four hour diet recalls.

Food Records
 Description A food record is a detailed description of the types and amounts of food, be$erage andIor supplements documented o$er a prescribed period, usually @ to C days. ood records are also known as +ood Diaries because of the specially designed booklets that sub%ects use to enter the details of the food and be$erages that they consume. 7nformation on food preparation, recipes, brand names and amounts consumed included specific portion si'es is included. 7n addition, the name of the meal, the time of day and eact location may be required depending upon the nature of the study.&ub%ects may be asked to weigh and measure foods and should be trained to record intake to the le$el of detail needed to describe the diet and nutrients in question. At the end of the recording period, a trained inter$iewer meets with the respondent to clarify food details and to re$iew the foods and portions documented. (ros "&trengths#
