Abstract: The growing public interest and the abundance of nutrition information available online potentially expose Internet readers to inaccurate food and nutrition information, which could have detrimental effects on their health. Vegetarianism, for instance, is a diet that has grown in popularity but that may be associated with important nutrient deficiencies when poorly planned and implemented. This study aimed to assess the variations in the nutritional content of recipes proposed in 24 vegetarian food blogs written by dietitians and by lay-people. Our results show that the nutritional content of these recipes differs in regards to energy and some nutrients when compared with vegetarian dietary recommendations. This master’s thesis supports the relevance of enhancing health professionals’ voices in social media, such as blogs, as an effective knowledge translation strategy to improve health promotion.
