Abstract

This study demonstrated that the diets of women were of poor quality despite the differences in agro-ecological zones and availability of food from the farm. Education level influenced women’s dietary diversity positively in low agricultural potential areas while household gender, education level, age and family size were important determinants in high potential areas. Nutrition interventions focusing on improving dietary quality of women should therefore pay special attention to developing region-specific interventions instead of generalizing interventions. / Peer Review
