International Affiliate of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics

We envision a future where there is….

An international nutrition and dietetics community who promotes health and well-being through food and nutrition.


You are being invited to participate in the Quick GUIDE© Content Questionnaire to provide your expertise on dietary intake and habits of individuals from either of the following countries: China, Hong Kong, Lebanon, Mexico and Taiwan. This project is being led by Prajakta Khare-Ranade MSc, RDN, LD, CDCES, FAND with the support from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and International Affiliate of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (IAAND). You were selected to participate in this project because of your association with the Academy and/or IAAND and as a member of one of these countries.

The “Quick GUIDE©” for assessing food/nutrition and dietary habits is a country-specific tool for dietetic professionals worldwide to help gather relevant nutrition-related information in cross-cultural dietetics practice.
If you agree to take part in this project, you will be asked to complete an online questionnaire. This questionnaire includes questions on food preferences and beliefs of individuals from either China, Hong Kong, Lebanon, Mexico and Taiwan. It will take you approximately 20 minutes to complete the questionnaire.

As a token of appreciation for your expertise in the development of the Quick GUIDES©, you will receive a certificate of recognition from the Academy and IAAND. In addition, your name will be entered in a lucky drawing for complementary year-long subscription of your choice of a Nutrition Care Manual® product.

Your participation in this project is completely voluntary and you can withdraw at any time. If you have questions about this project, you may contact Prajakta Khare-Ranade at email: [email protected].
