The presentation will be focused upon presenting the methodology followed in the Greek National Health and Nutrition Survey (HYDRIA) aiming to collect highly standardized data which is comparable to other European countries’ data on health status, dietary intakes, prevalence of overweight and obesity, and health-related lifestyle choices in a representative sample of the Greek resident population. Special emphasis will be given on the development of the automated 24-hour dietary recall instrument and the harmonization of the collected consumption data to the Foodex 2 classification and description system.

About Dr Valanou

Elissavet a Nutritionist with a Ph.D in Epidemiology with more than 12 years working experience in the field of epidemiology, nutrition and physical activity at the Medical University of Athens, Department of Epidemiology and, at the Hellenic Health Foundation. My main interest involves the assessment of the population health status by adopting international standards (protocols). While working on various EU and EFSA projects, as well as on the Greek National Dietary Survey, I gained expertise in the methodology of collecting, analysing, and evaluating consumption data, as well as an in-depth knowledge on the development and evaluation of a web-based 24-hour dietary recall tool.
