Dietary assessment for many is an essential part of the results they gain with clients, so understanding what tool to use, how to apply it, analyse the data and implement changes is vital. If you have ever wondered where to start with a client’s diet diary or wanted to get the most from the time spent on diet analysis, this is the course for you! This short course guides you through weighed and non-weighted diet diary options and their limitations and benefits, through to software to analyse data. You will learn how to calculate information using the Nutrient Reference Values (NRVs) such as EER (Estimated Energy Requirements) and nutrient requirements, including case studies to ensure practical application.

NOTE: This unit is not available as an elective in any programs, it is a short stand-alone course only.
