In this unit students have the opportunity to examine a variety of approaches to monitoring food and nutrition situations (including food supply, food habits and dietary assessment methods) at the individual, community and populations levels (state and national) and how these change over time in order to identify a need for action. The design and use of diet histories, records, checklists and frequencies are evaluated. Practical skills in food and nutrition monitoring and surveillance at the community and state levels are developed.
