New Global Indicator to Measure Women’s Dietary Diversity

The result of a joint FANTA-FAO meeting in July of 2014, the Minimum Dietary Diversity – Women (MDD-W) was endorsed by a wide range of stakeholders and is now available for use in large-scale surveys and other research. The indicator states that women consuming five of ten identified food groups are more likely to meet their overall micronutrient needs.
