Nordic Council of Ministers, Nordic Council of Ministers Secretariat2015 (English)Report (Other academic)
A workshop has discussed how to recruit adolescents to dietary surveys and how to reduce the burden of participation. Following results came up: Personal contact is very important both with regard to the recruitment and for conduction of dietary assessment. The studies need to be as simple as possible, but the adolescents also want to produce meaningful data. Tools that are based on new technological solutions might be useful but is resource and manpower demanding to develop. Schools are valuable as settings for studies or recruitment units for surveys. For older adolescents several settings might be needed since they might be engaged at different settings.
The workshop revealed needs for further research. Increased Nordic research collaboration on different topics would bring the research area forward and improve knowledge about dietary health promotion among adolescents.
