  • Vision of Research on Human Linear Growth
    • Authors: Noel W. Solomons
      Pages: 416 - 431
      Abstract: Food and Nutrition Bulletin, Volume 40, Issue 4, Page 416-431, December 2019.
      The human body grows in length from conception to the maximal adult height over two decades. The shortest male population averages ∼150 cm and the tallest ∼183 cm. Nonetheless the dimensions of head and trunk are highly comparable, with the vast difference in the leg length. Stunting is a personal condition in which an individual has a standing height-for-age (HAZ) of less than two standard deviations of the standard curve median. It is associated with increased mortality, morbidity, and functional deficits. The process of losing relative stature is known as linear growth retardation, first attributed to chronic protein deficiency, then to an assortment of micronutrient deficiencies, and most recently to inflammation from unhygienic environmental conditions. Public health intervention trials responding to each of these possibilities have failed to produce true reversal responses measured in the 10s of centimeters. As to biological insights, there is no convenient way to separate weight from length growth with sonographic monitoring, but a third of infants can be born stunted. Normative growth (standard curves) competes with epigenetic adaptation (programming) as the beacon for in utero growth. Major investments into field trials allow us to discard multiple micronutrients and water/sanitation/hygiene interventions as measures to reverse established stunting. The preponderance of evidence is against catch-up growth during puberty. Future publications will be in the conceptual domain, resolving metrics, while the full range of stimuli and exposures impeding growth will be elucidated. Advances in measurement techniques in anthropometry and immunology and endocrinology will be mobilized to the literature.

  • Dietary Iron Bioavailability: A Simple Model That Can Be Used to Derive
           Country-Specific Values for Adult Men and Women
    • Authors: Susan Fairweather-Tait, Cornelia Speich, Comlan Evariste S. Mitchikpè, Jack R. Dainty
      Abstract: Food and Nutrition Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      Background:Reference intakes for iron are derived from physiological requirements, with an assumed value for dietary iron absorption. A new approach to estimate iron bioavailability, calculated from iron intake, status, and requirements was used to set European dietary reference values, but the values obtained cannot be used for low- and middle-income countries where diets are very different.Objective:We aimed to test the feasibility of using the model developed from United Kingdom and Irish data to derive a value for dietary iron bioavailability in an African country, using data collected from women of child-bearing age in Benin. We also compared the effect of using estimates of iron losses made in the 1960s with more recent data for whole body iron losses.Methods:Dietary iron intake and serum ferritin (SF), together with physiological requirements of iron, were entered into the predictive model to estimate percentage iron absorption from the diet at different levels of iron status.Results:The results obtained from the 2 different methods for calculating physiological iron requirements were similar, except at low SF concentrations. At a SF value of 30 µg/L predicted iron absorption from the African maize-based diet was 6%, compared with 18% from a Western diet, and it remained low until the SF fell below 25 µg/L.Conclusions:We used the model to estimate percentage dietary iron absorption in 30 Beninese women. The predicted values agreed with results from earlier single meal isotope studies; therefore, we conclude that the model has potential for estimating dietary iron bioavailability in men and nonpregnant women consuming different diets in other countries.

  • Gender Equity and Vitamin A Supplementation: Moving Beyond Equal Coverage
    • Authors: Stella Nordhagen, Aubrey Bauck, David Doledec
      Abstract: Food and Nutrition Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      Background:Vitamin A supplementation (VAS) is currently implemented in over 80 countries worldwide, but little attention has been paid to gender equity in the design or implementation of these programs.Objective:This article describes the ways in which gender equity can impact or be impacted by VAS programs and suggests ways to ensure these programs better support gender equity in the future.Methods:We undertook a desk review of research on gender equity in health services and extrapolated findings to VAS, highlighting gender equity issues throughout the VAS implementation process and across delivery platform types. We also amassed secondary data on VAS coverage from 45 surveys in 13 countries and analyzed it to examine differences in VAS coverage between boys and girls.Results:Despite few significant differences in coverage between boys and girls, we identify numerous ways in which gender equity can impact or be impacted by VAS programs, including through the choice of VAS distributors and the communication materials used to promote VAS campaigns. Examining these different entry points reveals that there are several missed opportunities for better integration of gender within VAS.Conclusions:VAS program implementers and policymakers should revisit VAS approaches to identify opportunities for advancing gender equity through this wide-reaching platform.

  • Leveraging an Implementation– Research Partnership to Improve
           
    • Authors: Deanna K. Olney, Quinn Marshall, Geraldine Honton, Kathryn Ogden, Mutinta Hambayi, Sarah Piccini, Ara Go, Aulo Gelli, Lilia Bliznashka
      Abstract: Food and Nutrition Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      Background:Nutrition-sensitive programs can accelerate progress in addressing malnutrition. However, evidence gaps exist related to their effectiveness and how to optimize program design and implementation.Objective:We present the process the International Food Policy Research Institute and the World Food Programme (WFP) used to develop nutrition-sensitive program guidance and plans for improving program effectiveness and contributing to the evidence base through rigorous evaluations.Methods:A 5-step process, using principles of design thinking (a systematic, iterative analytical approach to problem solving), was used to develop, test, and refine WFP’s nutrition-sensitive guidance. The guidance focuses on improving nutrition outcomes for nutritionally vulnerable groups across the life cycle: women and children in the first 1000 days, preschoolers, schoolchildren, and adolescents.Results:Through iterative consultations, we created WFP’s nutrition-sensitive guidance that includes harmonized theories of change across WFP’s programs; 7 opportunities to enhance the programs’ nutrition-sensitivity; and mapping of these opportunities to WFP programs and key evidence gaps. This guidance has been rolled out to WFP’s offices worldwide to support improved nutrition outcomes. Finally, several evaluation designs have been proposed to fill identified evidence gaps.Conclusions:By leveraging our implementation–research partnership, we expect that WFP’s programs will be more effective and cost effective for improving nutrition. This can be assessed through coupling newly designed nutrition-sensitive programs with rigorous evaluations. Evaluation results will be used to refine WFP’s nutrition-sensitive guidance and improve their programs globally. This guidance, and creation process, could be useful for others interested in designing nutrition-sensitive programs and increasing program effectiveness for nutrition.

  • Advancing Nutrition in the International Food Assistance Agenda: Progress
           and Future Directions Identified at the 2018 Food Assistance for Nutrition
           Evidence Summit
    • Authors: Lindsey Ellis Green, Ilana R. Cliffer, Devika J. Suri, Kristine R. Caiafa, Beatrice L. Rogers, Patrick J. R. Webb
      Abstract: Food and Nutrition Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      Background:Global food insecurity persists despite continued international attention, necessitating evidence-based food assistance interventions that adequately address nutritional concerns. In June 2018, the US Agency for International Development’s Office of Food for Peace through the Food Aid Quality Review (FAQR) project sponsored a “Food Assistance for Nutrition Evidence Summit” to share evidence relevant to policy and programmatic decision-making and to identify critical evidence gaps.Objective:This article presents 4 priority areas to advance nutrition in the international food assistance agenda generated through presentations and discussions with the food assistance community at the Evidence Summit.Methods:Priority areas were identified after the Evidence Summit using a combination of FAQR team discussions, review of presentations and official notes, and supporting literature.Results:Key priority areas to advance nutrition in the international food assistance agenda are as follows: (1) increase research funding for food assistance in all contexts, paying particular attention to emergency settings; (2) research and adopt innovative ingredients, technology, and delivery strategies in food assistance products and programs that encourage long-term well-being; (3) redefine and expand indicators of nutritional status to capture contextual information about the outcomes of food assistance interventions; and (4) augment communication and collaboration across the food assistance ecosystem.Conclusions:These priorities are critical in a time of increased humanitarian need and will be key to fostering long-term resilience among vulnerable groups.

  • Overvaluation of Eating and Satiation Explains the Association of Food
           Insecurity and Food Intake With Obesity and Cardiometabolic Diseases
    • Authors: María C. Caamaño, Olga P. García, Pablo Parás, Jorge R. Palacios, Jorge L. Rosado
      First page: 432
      Abstract: Food and Nutrition Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      Background:In developing countries, where energy-dense foods with low nutrient content are highly accessible, the fear of feeling hungry and the desire of prolonging satiation have been documented.Objective:To evaluate the role of valuation of eating and satiation in the relationship of food insecurity with diet, obesity, and cardiometabolic risk with structural equation modeling.Methods:A validated questionnaire that measures the value of eating and satiation (VES) as the basis of wealth was administered to 321 adult women from Queretaro, Mexico. Instruments for measurement of socioeconomic status, food insecurity, physical activity, and a semiquantitative food frequency questionnaire were also applied. Women were measured and weighed, and they provided a fasting blood sample to determine lipid profile, glucose, and insulin concentrations. Structural equation models were used for prediction of the homeostasis model assessment–insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) index and triglyceride/high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol index.Results:The models confirmed, with acceptable goodness-of-fit parameters, the mediation position of VES between past experiences of food insecurity and a greater intake of carbohydrates and its impact on obesity, and on the HOMA-IR and the triglyceride/HDL-cholesterol index.Conclusion:Experiences of food insecurity may increase VES in women and influence eating behavior, increasing intake of sugars and starches in their diet, thus increasing the risk of obesity and cardiometabolic diseases such as diabetes. The understanding of essential values that induce unfavorable eating behavior in a population that has experienced past food insecurity may help to develop public health strategies for prevention of cardiometabolic diseases.

  • Global Patterns of Adolescent Fruit, Vegetable, Carbonated Soft Drink, and
           Fast-Food Consumption: A Meta-Analysis of Global School-Based Student
           Health Surveys
    • Authors: Ty Beal, Saul S. Morris, Alison Tumilowicz
      First page: 444
      Abstract: Food and Nutrition Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      Background:Adolescence presents an opportunity to influence diet, which impacts present and future health outcomes, yet adolescent diets globally are poorly understood.Objective:We generate evidence on adolescent diets globally and explore patterns and trends by subpopulation.Methods:We estimated mean frequency of consumption and prevalence of less-than-daily fruit and vegetable consumption, at-least-daily carbonated beverage consumption, and at-least-weekly fast-food consumption among school-going adolescents aged primarily 12 to 17 years from the Global School-based Student Health Surveys in Africa, Asia, Oceania, and Latin America between 2008 and 2015. Random-effects meta-analysis was used to pool estimates globally and by subgroup.Results:On average, adolescents consumed fruit 1.43 (95% confidence interval [CI] 1.26–1.60) times per day, vegetables 1.75 (1.58–1.92) times per day, carbonated soft drinks 0.99 (0.77–1.22) times per day, and fast food 1.05 (0.78–1.32) times per week. Overall, 34.5% (95% CI 29.4–39.7) consumed fruit less than once per day, 20.6% (15.8–25.9) consumed vegetables less than once per day, 42.8% (35.2–50.7) drank carbonated soft drinks at least once per day, and 46.1% (38.6–53.7) consumed fast food at least once per week. Mean daily frequency of fruit consumption was particularly low in South and East Asia (1.30 [1.02–1.58]); carbonated soft drink consumption high in Latin America (1.54 [1.31–1.78]), high-income countries (1.66 [1.29–2.03]), and modern food system typologies (1.44 [0.75–2.12]); and mean weekly fast food consumption high in mixed food system typologies (1.29 [0.88–1.71]).Conclusions:School-going adolescents infrequently consume fruits and vegetables and frequently consume carbonated soft drinks, but there is wide variability by subpopulation.

  • A Randomized Crossover Study to Evaluate Recipe Acceptability in
           Breastfeeding Mothers and Young Children in India Targeted for a Multiple
           Biofortified Food Crop Intervention
    • Authors: Bryan M. Gannon, Varsha Thakker, Vincent S. Bonam, Jere D. Haas, Wesley Bonam, Julia L. Finkelstein, Shobha A. Udipi, Saurabh Mehta
      First page: 460
      Abstract: Food and Nutrition Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      Background:A multiple biofortified food crop trial targeting iron, zinc, and vitamin A deficiencies among young children and their breastfeeding mothers is planned in India.Objective:To determine the acceptability of recipes prepared with control and biofortified pearl millet, wheat, lentils, and sweet potato.Methods:Children (6-24 months) and their mothers were enrolled as pairs (n = 52). Weight and height/length were determined. Mothers and children were separately, individually randomized in a crossover design to control or biofortified recipes. Children’s 3-day intake was measured per recipe and crop variety. For mothers, a 9-point hedonic scale evaluated color, odor, taste, and overall acceptability.Results:Children’s mean (SD) length-/height-for-age Z-score was −1.2 (1.7), with 27% < −2 (stunted). Mean weight-for-length Z-score was −0.6 (1.2) with 9.6% < −2 (wasted). Mother’s body mass index showed 17% 25. There was no difference in the children’s intake of biofortified versus control varieties of any recipe (P ≥ .22); overall median daily intake was 75 g (Q1: 61, Q3: 100). Mother’s hedonic scores for color, odor, taste, or overall acceptability did not demonstrate any notable differences (P ≥ .23 for overall acceptability); combined median overall acceptability score was 8.5 (Q1: 8.0, Q3: 9.0).Conclusions:Recipes were consumed readily, were rated as highly acceptable, and did not show any differences between biofortified and control varieties.

      Background:This study assessed the trend of minimum acceptable dietary practices among children aged 6 to 23 months in India in the past decade.Methods:Data collected in the National Family Health Survey during 2005 to 2006 (NFHS-3) and 2015 to 2016 (NFHS-4) were used. The sample size for this study was 11 727 children for NFHS-3 and 61 158 children for NFHS-4. Bivariate and multivariate analyses were done to identify the predictors of feeding practices. We analyzed data of last-born singleton child aged 6 to 23 months and who were living with their mother (ever-married women aged 15-49 years).Results:In India, low proportion (10%) of children aged 6 to 23 months received minimum acceptable diet, and its estimate remained the same in the past 10 years. Older mothers, educated mothers, antenatal care, high economic status, and place of residence were the most consistent predictors of minimum acceptable dietary intake. Over the past decade, however, the minimum acceptable dietary intake has declined among older children (odds ratio [OR] = 0.57, 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.47-0.70; P < .001), children with overweight mothers (OR = 0.40, 95% CI, 0.31-0·50; P

      Abstract: Food and Nutrition Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      Background:Nutritious underutilized foods (NUFs) significantly contribute to sustainable dietary diversity but are often unused for many reasons.Objective:We assessed the influence of food security status (FSS) and anemia-related knowledge (ARK) on perceptions about Solanum torvum (turkey berry) and Rhynchophorus phoenicis Fabricius (palm weevil larvae) among Ghanaian caregivers.Methods:A cross-sectional survey was conducted among 891 caregivers (aged 20-49 years), who have children 6 to 59 months old, from Upper Manya Krobo district (Eastern region), Kumasi metropolitan (Ashanti region), Ho municipality (Volta region), La-Nkwantanang-Madina, and Ga West municipality (Greater-Accra region), Ghana. Food security status, ARK, and perceptions about the 2 NUFs were obtained using pretested semi-structured questionnaire. Logistic regression models were used to determine effect of FSS and ARK on perception outcomes.Results:Thirty-six percent of caregivers were food secure, while 13.9%, 28.4%, and 21.7%, respectively, were mildly, moderately, and severely food insecure. Most caregivers (62.0%) scored above 70% on ARK. High favorable perception was significantly lower for palm weevil larvae than that for turkey berry. Food secure caregivers were 4.5 times more likely to have poor favorable perceptions about palm weevil larvae than food insecure caregivers (P = .03). However, food secure caregivers were 2.9 times more likely to have high favorable perceptions about turkey berry than food insecure caregivers (P < .001). Caregivers’ knowledge about anemia was associated with high favorable perception about turkey berry by 3.3-fold (95% confidence interval: 2-5.5, P = .001).Conclusions:Nutrition education about turkey berry and palm weevil larvae is needed to encourage their use for promoting nutrient density of complementary and household foods.

      Abstract: Food and Nutrition Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      Background:To characterize the scenario of food insecurity in Portugal at a time of economic crisis recovery is of the utmost relevance.Objective:This study aimed to estimate the prevalence and to identify the determinants of food insecurity during economic crisis recovery in a population-based urban sample of middle- and older-aged Portuguese adults.Methods:A cross-sectional study including 604 participants of the EPIPorto cohort was conducted. Data on sociodemographic characteristics and on food security status were collected. Food security status was assessed using the US Household Food Security Survey Module: Six-Item Short Form. Logistic regression models, crude and adjusted for sex, age, education, and household income perception, were performed.Results:The prevalence of food insecurity was 16.6%. Women (odds ratio [OR] = 1.96; 95% confidence interval [CI]: 1.09-3.54), those less educated (OR = 5.46; 95% CI: 2.84-10.46), and those who had the perception of an insufficient household income (OR = 10.39; 95% CI: 5.00-21.56) were more likely to belong to a food insecure household. Unmarried individuals (OR = 1.79; 95% CI: 1.05-3.06) and lower white-collar workers (OR = 2.22; 95% CI: 1.03-4.77) were also more prone to live within a food insecure household, regardless of sex, age, education, and household income perception.Conclusions:The obtained information is valuable for the development of intervention strategies to reduce food insecurity in middle- and older-aged adults, suggesting that women, unmarried, less educated individuals, less skilled workers, and lower income families should be targeted.

      Background:Sources of fluoride exposure for Mexicans include foods, beverages, fluoridated salt, and naturally fluoridated water. There are no available data describing fluoride content of foods and beverages consumed in Mexico.Objective:To measure the content of fluoride in foods and beverages typically consumed and to compare their content to that of those from the United States and the United Kingdom.Methods:Foods and beverages reported as part of the Mexican Health and Nutrition Survey (n = 182) were purchased in the largest supermarket chains and local markets in Mexico City. Samples were analyzed for fluoride, at least in duplicate, using a modification of the hexamethyldisiloxane microdiffusion method. Value contents were compared to those from the US Department of Agriculture and UK fluoride content tables.Results:The food groups with the lowest and highest fluoride content were eggs (2.32 µg/100 g) and seafood (371 µg/100 g), respectively. When estimating the amount of fluoride per portion size, the lowest content corresponded to eggs and the highest to fast foods. Meats and sausages, cereals, fast food, sweets and cakes, fruits, dairy products, legumes, and seafood from Mexico presented higher fluoride contents than similar foods from the United States or the United Kingdom. Drinks and eggs from the United States exhibited the highest contents, while this was the case for pasta, soups, and vegetables from the United Kingdom.Conclusion:The majority of items analyzed contained higher fluoride contents than their US and UK counterparts. Data generated provide the first and largest table on fluoride content, which will be useful for future comparisons and estimations.

      Background:Despite a reduction of child mortality in low-income countries, acutely ill undernourished children still have an elevated risk of death. Those at highest risk are children with severe acute malnutrition (SAM) who often show metabolic dysregulations that remains poorly understood.Objective:We performed a pilot study to examine changes in urinary organic acids during nutritional rehabilitation of children with SAM, and to identify metabolites associated with the presence of edema or with mortality.Methods:This study included 76 children aged between 6 and 60 months, hospitalized for SAM at the Moyo Nutritional Rehabilitation and Research Unit in Blantyre, Malawi. Urine was collected at admission and 3 days after clinical stabilization and metabolomics were performed using gas chromatography–mass spectrometry. Metabolite concentrations were evaluated with both uni- and multivariate approaches.Results:Most metabolites increased 3 days after clinical stabilization, and total urinary concentration changed from 1.2 mM (interquartile range [IQR], 0.78-1.7) at admission to 3.8 mM (IQR, 2.1-6.6) after stabilization (P < .0001). In particular, 6 metabolites showed increases: 3-hydroxybutyric, 4-hydroxyhippuric, p-hydroxyphenylacetic, oxoglutaric, succinic, and lactic acids. Urinary creatinine was low at both time points, but levels did increase from 0.63 mM (IQR, 0.2-1.2) to 2.6 mM (IQR,1.6-4.4; P < .0001). No differences in urinary profiles were found between children who died versus those who survived, nor between children with severe wasting or edematous SAM.Conclusions:Total urinary metabolites and creatinine increase after stabilization and may reflect partial recovery of overall metabolism linked to refeeding. The use of urinary metabolites for risk assessment should be furthered explored.Trial registration:TranSAM study (ISRCTN13916953).

  • Effectiveness of an Educational Manual to Promote Infant Feeding Practices
           in Primary Health Care
    • Authors: Gláubia Rocha Barbosa Relvas, Gabriela Buccini, Louise Potvin, Sonia Venancio
      First page: 544
      Abstract: Food and Nutrition Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      Objective:To test the hypothesis that a continuing educational strategy (ie, “the manual”) in primary health-care improves infant feeding practices among infants under 1 year of age.Methods:A before and after study was conducted at primary health-care units in Embu das Artes, Brazil. The intervention was the use of a manual created to supporting continuing educational activities on breastfeeding and complementary feeding to be performed by tutors of Estratégia Amamenta e Alimenta Brasil with health-care teams, in a period of 8 months. Five hundred sixty-one mothers before and 598 mothers after intervention were interviewed about breastfeeding and complementary feeding practices. Multivariate analysis was performed using Poisson multilevel regression to test the hypothesis.Results:Lack of minimum food diversity (before 62.9%; after 50.3%) and lack of food adequacy (before 77.5%; after 63.3%) decreased significantly. Regression analysis confirmed that infants after the intervention had lower prevalence of inadequacy of complementary feeding. While the intervention did not show significant association with exclusive breastfeeding, it showed association with the improvement of complementary feeding practices.Conclusions:The manual is a continuing educational strategy that improved complementary feeding practices in primary health care.

      Abstract: Food and Nutrition Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      Background:Overweight/obesity during adolescence in lower-middle income countries has become a public health problem with consequences in adulthood. Inadequate dietary habits, poor diet quality, sedentary behavior, and parental obesity have been reported.Objective:To describe management of obesity-like food habits and behavior of adolescents from lower-middle income countries with respect to what keeps them using this diet (barriers) and what helps them avoid it (enablers).Methods:Systematic-review of the literature related to obesity and food intake of adolescents conducted according to the Preferred-Reporting-Items-for-Systematic-Reviews-and-Meta-Analysis.Results:We classified 11 eligible studies describing the barriers to and enablers of the management of obesity-like food intake and obesity lifestyle. The dual burdens of malnutrition and increased urbanization have been observed. There is preference for processed food, dietary habits, and obesity-like food intake, and sedentary behavior. Barriers to managing body weight gain included mostly consumption of fast-food and snack food, less vegetable and fruit intake, skipping meals, and sedentary behavior. Enablers of managing body weight gain included changes in nutritional habits, perception of the consumption of healthy food, physical activity, and engagement in programs to change lifestyle.Conclusion:The globalization of the fast food industry has provided an obesogenic environmental stimulus for adolescents in lower-middle income countries.

  • The Relationship Between Dietary Diversity Among Women of Reproductive Age
           and Agricultural Diversity in Rural Tanzania
    • Authors: Alexandra L. Bellows, Chelsey R. Canavan, Mia M. Blakstad, Dominic Mosha, Ramadhani A. Noor, Patrick Webb, Joyce Kinabo, Honorati Masanja, Wafaie W. Fawzi
      Abstract: Food and Nutrition Bulletin, Ahead of Print.
      Background:Agriculture can influence diets through consumption of home-produced foods or increased purchasing power derived from sale of agricultural commodities.Objective:This article explores cross-sectional relationships between agricultural diversification and dietary diversity (a proxy for micronutrient adequacy) among women of reproductive age in rural Tanzania.Methods:Dietary diversity was measured using the women’s minimum dietary diversity score indicator. Data were analyzed from the baseline survey of a cluster randomized control trial in Rufiji, Tanzania. One woman of reproductive age was randomly surveyed from each eligible household, totaling 1006 individuals. Generalized linear mixed-effects models were used to estimate the relationship between agricultural indicators and dietary diversity.Results:Median dietary diversity score for women was 3.00 (interquartile range: 2-3). Approximately 73% of households grew at least 1 crop in the previous year. Women’s dietary diversity score was positively associated with cropping diversity (P for trend = .04), ownership of livestock (adjusted coefficient: 0.30; 95% confidence interval [CI]: 0.08-0.44; P = .005), cash crop production (adjusted coefficient: 0.22; 95% CI: 0.03-0.41; P = .02), and production of pulses (adjusted coefficient: 0.50; 95% CI: 0.27-0.74; P < .0001) and other vegetables (adjusted coefficient: 0.64; 95% CI: 0.11-1.17; P = .02).Conclusions:Average dietary diversity is well below the recommended 5 food groups per day, a widely used indicator of micronutrient adequacy. Since the majority of households participate in agriculture, the efforts to promote agricultural diversification and/or specialization and sale of agricultural goods may positively influence dietary diversity and associated health and nutrition outcomes.
