Do you think you will be able to remember everything you ate and drank in the last 24 hours? And if you did, do you think you could tell exactly how much of one thing or another you ate or drank, including the water and ingredients used to prepare the food?

Read on to learn about the creative bets of our scientists in Kenya to depict as faithfully as possible what people usually include on their plates. This helps identify the excesses and deficiencies in these people’s diets to design interventions that defeat enemies such as malnutrition.
