Author(s): James Wick*

In the UK, there is no consistent, systematic measuring of food and nutrient intake by region. Our objective was to provide a way to assist policy makers in monitoring the dietary habits of the neighborhood's residents. This study's objective was to determine whether it was possible to get a sizable sample quickly and regionally utilising social media and online platforms to gather dietary data.

The Facebook posts were promoted for 21 days, reaching 76.9k people.
