Scientific Report Write-Up Guidelines
You should write up your practical work on the two methods for the estimation of dietary intake using the scientific report style. A scientific report is a formal way of writing-up a practical experiment, project or research investigation. It has clearly defined sections, presented in a standardised format that tell the reader what you did, why and how you did it and what you found. A scientific report should be written in a way that presumes that the reader knows nothing about your experiment or practical and in enough detail so that someone reading it could replicate your experiment or practical exactly. An objective style of writing should be used to convey information clearly and concisely.
Most scientific reports include the following: title, abstract, introduction, methods, results, discussion, conclusion, references and appendices.
See below for what goes in each section:
Sections for Scientific Report
Keep this report as concise as possible. The limit is 2000 words +/-10%. You need to quote the word count at the bottom of the contents list page of your report.

The introduction ‘sets the scene’ for your report. It should supply background information on the subject area and end with the aims of the practical work. This section should include how and why we measure dietary intake with reference to nutritional science and dietetic practice (~500 words).
In general, the main purpose of a methods section is to describe the techniques and equipment used to carry out the practical work, and to do so in sufficient detail so that a competent worker could repeat it.
For the purposes of this report and due to the restricted word count you are required to write a brief but accurate summary of the methods used, include the two dietary assessment methods used and the analysis (~200 words).
This is where you present the data for your dietary analyses. This should be done in a logical, clear and simple way using tables and/or graphs. Do not discuss or interpret any findings here, simply report and describe. If you use a table or graph to present results, make sure this is referred to in the main body text, summarising and highlighting the key findings. This can become before or after the graph/table. Be careful to include the correct units.

The modern way of life that implies sedentary lifestyles and unhealthy diet has led to metabolic disorders and development of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and obesity. Nutritional status depends on balanced consumption of fluids, macronutrients and micronutrients. Under-nutrition and over-nutrition are representing the double burden of malnutrition within the individuals, households and nations (World Health Organization, 2017). Malnutrition can be prevented by using nutritional screening and dietary assessment methods and finally changing the diet.
Methods for the assessment of dietary intake represent the evaluation of information about food, drink and nutrient intake and dietary pattern over time. Also, dietary assessment involves processing that information using food composition data (Dao et al., 2019). The dietary assessment methods can be indirect and direct. Indirect methods are used for the collection of secondary dietary data (data that is not collected from individuals) to evaluate consumption of food and nutrients at the household and national levels (The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, 2018). The dietitians collect the dietary data on household and national level to determine the relationship between...
