Introduction: Nutrition care is part of the management of most prevalent chronic conditions, including obesity. Diet assessment (DA) is a key part of the overall assessment of nutritional status. A number of challenges exist in conducting DA, and electronic DA (e-DA) tools within mobile apps or Websites can potentially improve the accuracy and efficiency of DA. Objectives: To explore DA practices and use of e-DA tools by health providers in Ontario Family Health Teams (FHTs). Methods: A mixed-method sequential design with interdisciplinary focus groups and a Web-based survey to explore current practice, facilitators and barriers to use of e-DA. Results: Eleven focus groups with 50 health providers identified important themes: 1) diet assessment as an interdisciplinary activity, 2) improving patient’s eating habits, 3) improving quality of diet assessment and 4) integrating e-DA tools into the care process. In the web-survey of 191 respondents from nine disciplines in 89 FHTs, 64 % conducted DA “every day” with various DA methods. Dietitians reported greater use of e-DA than other health providers (63 % vs. 19 %; p
