    Abstract

    Background

    Measuring dietary intake is difficult and strategies which enable researchers to select the most appropriate dietary assessment tools (DATs) are needed. The DIET@NET partnership aimed to create a central resource to improve the quality, consistency and comparability of dietary data.

    Methods

    Development of the Nutritools website was divided into 3 strands. 1) Creating Best Practice Guidelines (BPG) which enables researchers to choose the most appropriate DAT for their work. These were generated using the Delphi method which enabled integration of expert views. 2) Creating an interactive DAT e-library, with the DATs being identified through a systematic review of reviews. 3) Creating an online interface (Food Questionnaire Creator (FQC)) between food tables and DATs.
