We are looking for survey participants for a study that aims to improve our measurement of food intake, and to explore new ways which might increase the accuracy of the tools we use to measure what you eat.

Introduction

Each year CSIRO performs a number of research projects involving human participants. We are interested in measuring dietary intake and examining the effect of different diets on health.

We are always trying to improve the tools we use to measure diet. Traditionally, surveys that measure food intake are long, time consuming, and generally need to be administered by a dietitian. We have developed a short, online survey which is quick and easy to complete but that can still accurately measure food intake.

What is the aim of this study?

The aim is to improve our measurement of food intake and to explore new ways which might increase the accuracy of the tools we use to measure what you eat.

How will the study be carried out?

  • You will need to complete two online surveys asking about the types of foods you usually eat and how much you usually eat, as well as a brief evaluation survey telling us what you liked and didn’t like about the surveys
  • Each food survey will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete
  • We are trying to improve our methods, so are interested in how our surveys perform against each other.

Who is eligible to participate?

We are looking for people who are:

  • Aged over 18 years of age, and living in Australia
  • Not planning to change their dietary intake over the next month.

To register your interest in the study, or for more information, please email Emilie.Evans@csiro.au.
