Abstract

Diet quality is the core link between food systems and their nutrition and health outcomes. However, the diets of many consumers in lower and middle income countries (LMIC) are monotonous and below benchmark levels established for minimum diet diversity. This chapter presents an overview of the current state of food and nutrition security and dietary diversity linkages and highlights opportunities for production systems to provide greater diversity for healthier diets.
