Results: The energy, carbohydrate, sugar and sodium intakes were statistically significant correlation between Web-page and 3-day 24-hour dietary recall. The correlations coefficient of energy and the three nutrient intakes between two methods were high (r=0.86 – 0.98). The Bland-Altman plots showed that the difference between the two methods were inside the limit of agreement for energy and the three nutrients. The weighted kappa analysis show that agreement of energy and the three nutrients were substantial to almost perfected (Kw=0.78–0.92).
