Changing the way Australia eats, one survey at a time

13 July 2016

Professor Clare Collins and Dr Megan Rollo are committed to finding nutrition research solutions to tackle Australia’s poor eating habits and the obesity epidemic, harnessing technology and the power of online platforms and the media to get the message out on a big scale. 

The Nutrition and Dietetics research team at the University of Newcastle developed the Australian Eating Survey™ (AES), a series of online food frequency questionnaires to help assess an individual’s usual food and nutrient intakes. Based on the results and recommendations, the personal nutrition report helps people to make good food choices. Professor Collins and Dr Rollo turned to Intersect Australia to bring their ideas to the world wide web. Learn more here in our latest case study.
