Food Diaries

Another useful tool in the assessment of pediatric feeding problems is the food diary. Parents are often asked to monitor and record their child's solid and liquid intake over a period of time (e.g., 1 week) and provide this information for analysis at the beginning of treatment. A variety of information can be recorded in food diaries, including the type and amount of food or drink consumed, the time of the intake, the behavior during feeding, the duration of the meal, and the immediate environment at the time of consumption (e.g., presence of other family members, location of the meal). These records can be helpful in examining patterns of eating over time and determining the nutritional value of foods that are consumed (Stark et al. 1993; Wolper et al. 1995).
