Frontiers Research Topic: Quantitative and Technological Approaches to the Monitoring of Food Intake and Nutrition

This Research Topic focuses on emerging techniques of dietary and behavioral assessment relying on wearable sensors as the primary source of the information; quantitative techniques for modeling of human ingestive behavior, energy intake, energy expenditure and energy balance; methods of image and video recognition for food analysis; and other related methods and devices.

Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
