Active Comparator: Non-personalised general diet advice
Control group to receive non-personalised dietary advice based on general public health dietary recommendations for Northern Europe. Advice will be delivered to the participant via the eNutri web application.
Behavioral: Non-personalised diet advice delivered via the eNutri app (control)
Non-personalised dietary advice to improve food choices based on standard population guidelines delivered by the eNutri app and irrespective of the dietary intakes from the food frequency questionnaire (control group).
Experimental: Personalised diet advice
Intervention group to receive personalised dietary advice generated by the eNutri app from their actual dietary intakes and tailored according to their body mass index and food preferences. Advice will be delivered to the participant via the eNutri app web application and will be generated based on their adherence to an 11-item diet quality score suitable for Northern European populations.
Behavioral: Personalised diet advice delivered via the eNutri app (intervention)
Personalised dietary advice to improve food choices based on adherence to an 11-item diet quality score, which is determined by the eNutri app in response to the dietary intakes from the food frequency questionnaire (intervention group).
- eNutri diet quality score (DQS) [ Time Frame: Baseline & week 12 ]Dietary intake at baseline and week 12 will be assessed via the eNutri food frequency questionnaire (FFQ) from which an 11-item eNutri DQS will be calculated. The eNutri DQS was developed for Northern Europe and quantifies diet quality (i.e. the healthiness of a diet). It is composed of 11 food and nutrient components (contributing 10 points each) that are summed to give an overall score (between 0-110 points), where higher scores reflect the healthiest diets based on adherence to dietary recommendations.
- Body mass index (BMI) [ Time Frame: Baseline & week 12 ]Self reported measurements of weight and height will be used to determine BMI.
