The papers in this special section address the concept of nutrition informatics from food monitoring to dietary management. Non-communicable diseases (NCD) account for a massively increasing proportion of the global health burden. A number of behavioral and physiological factors are related to the rising onset of NCD worldwide, with unhealthy eating playing a key role among them. In parallel, food allergies and associated acute and sometimes life-threatening reactions are a public health problem. Thus, balanced nutrition with a proper diet is the key to the prevention of diet related diseases. The recent advances in smartphone technologies, wearable sensors, computer vision and machine learning will bring the applications of nutrition informatics closer to the individuals and enable them to make better decisions regarding their daily lives.
