Abstract

The e-NutriHS is a web-based system developed to gather online information on health of a cohort of college students and graduates in nutrition. It consists of six validated and internationally recognized questionnaires regarding demographic and socioeconomic data, dietary habits, physical activity level, alcohol and tobacco use, anti-fat attitudes and personal and family histories. Our software and respective database is hosted in the School of Public Health server and is based on free programming languages. An e-NutriHS prototype was created preceding online deployment. An improved version of the website was released based on 20 volunteers' opinions. A total of 503 users were registered. Considering that web-based systems produce reliable data, are easy to use, less costly and are less time-consuming, we conclude that our experience deserves to be shared, particularly with middle income economy countries.
