What is Nutritional Assessment?
The original term was used by a sub-committee of the League of Nations (1932) referring to a set of medical tasks to determine the nutritional status of a population (Gibson, 2005). After 1976 (Bistrian & Blackburn et al), it became a standardized, hospital-based set of tools to predict nutrition and health outcomes and direct treatment for individual patients with post-op complications, trauma or malnutrition. In 1996, Theresa Schneider BASc, RD, MPH decided to take assessment tools out of the hospital and research environment to assess the health of athletes, those with chronic diseases and corporate executives.
Today a nutrition assessment includes computerized food intake analysis, clinical nutrition body composition assessment (bioelectrical impedance, BIA), laboratory blood test results if applicable, nutrigenomics, anthropometrics, and review of medications, cooking, shopping and your fitness indicators.
