“This project developed a method for constructing eating maps that portray places, times, and people in an individual’s eating episodes. Researchers used seven consecutive days of qualitative eating recall interviews from 42 purposively sampled U.S. adults to draw a composite eating map of eating sites, meals, and partners for each person on a template showing home, work, automobile, other homes, and other places. Participants evaluated their own maps and provided feedback. The eating maps revealed diverse places, times, and partners. Eating maps offer a flexible tool for eliciting, displaying, validating, and applying information to visualize eating patterns within contexts.”

Comment: this tool was applied in a western country. However, the same may be interesting also when adapted to food and nutrition surveys in low-resource settings.
