Does the Australian Eating Survey work for Stroke Survivors?

To make programs that support stroke survivors to eat well, we need to know what their current diet looks like.

We would like to find out whether the tools we usually use to measure your diet work well for stroke survivors.

What will you be asked to do?

1. Complete the online Australian Eating Survey (120 questions about the foods you usually eat). This takes 30-40 minutes.

2. Complete a 3-day Weighed Food Record – you will measure and write down everything you eat or drink for 3 days.

We will compare the survey and the food record and see if they are the same or different – this will tell us whether the survey works for stroke survivors.

Who can participate?

Anyone who is over 18 years old, has experienced a stroke and lives at home in Australia.
