Design and Evaluation of a Training Protocol for a Photographic Method of Visual Estimation of Fruit and Vegetable Intake among Kindergarten Through Second-Grade Students
Fruit and vegetable intake data can be invasive and time-consuming to collect; however, more methods in visual estimation of intake have been used to mitigate some of the issues associated with data collection. Having a training protocol for fruit and vegetable intake is essential in the reliable collection and assessment of intake data among raters.
- Describe the importance of assessing fruit and vegetable intake in the lunchroom setting for school research.
- Describe the development of a training protocol for visual estimation of fruit and vegetable intake.
- Identify implications for research when creating a training protocol in use of lab or school settings and items to consider.
Dr. Natalie Masis has a doctorate in Nutritional Sciences from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, a Master of Science in Nutritional Sciences from Texas Tech University, and both a Bachelor of Science in Nutritional Sciences and in Food Science from Cornell University. Dr. Masis' former research focused on assessing fruit and vegetable outcomes in school children.
