Validated Method for Documenting Food and Fluid Intake at Meals
  This method for estimating food and fluid intake at meals was developed specifically for, and validated in, the routine nursing home environment. Resulting meal intake estimates may be recorded in the medical record via a facility's existing recording system or via the specially developed FOOD AND FLUID INTAKE TRACKING form. The advantages of this system are the increased accuracy of food intake estimates and the availability of separate fluid intake estimates for meals.
