There is increasing evidence that diseases of major public health importance are causally related to nutritional imbalance.
Development of nutrition policy to improve the nutritional status of a population requires reliable information about food consumption and its impact on the health of the population.
Available methods are useful but not accurate enough.
Assessment of the nutritional status of representative samples of the general population requires improved methods of dietary intake assessment.
