1. The Two-Minute Assessment (TMA) had good reliability and validity in assessing primary school students’ dietary intakes, such as calcium, dietary fibre, carbonated drinks, milk or soy milk, fruits, and vegetables.
2. The TMA can be self-administered and reviewed quickly, and therefore can be used to detect imbalanced diets and unhealthy lifestyles among Hong Kong primary school students for counselling and group-level healthy eating behaviour measurement.
