Dietary data are critical to inform policies across the agriculture, nutrition, food safety, and health sectors. This learning lab will improve participants’ understanding of available methods for dietary assessment and their suitability for addressing different diet-related policy questions. Two innovative tools for the collection and use of quantitative, individual-level dietary data will be presented: the FAO/WHO Global Individual Food consumption Tool (FAO/WHO GIFT) and the INDDEX24 Dietary Assessment Platform. Learning lab participants will have an opportunity to use real dietary data to generate their own infographics on food and nutrient-based indicators using the FAO/WHO GIFT platform.
