The iLiNS Project is committed to sharing experience and learning. For most project results, we will seek to publish in peer-reviewed journals. Depending on the type of journal, prior publication at this website may be prohibited by journal rules. When possible, preliminary results and lessons learned will be shared on this page.
Relative validity of adapted interactive 24-hr dietary recall method
Results of one preliminary study are provided in a two-page summary by Taru Saloheimo and colleagues. Our iLiNS-DOSE study in Malawi aims to compare energy intakes between infants receiving LNS and those not receiving LNS. These dietary studies will also provide insights on presence and nature of any displacement of other foods (e.g. porridge) by LNS. Our dietary sub-study is further described on our protocols page. To ensure that our adapted interactive 24-hr dietary recall method was adequate for the task, Taru and her colleagues assessed the relative validity of the method. The method was determined to be adequate for the main objective of the dietary studies. Download a summary of her results here:
