    Plats composés consommés hors du domicile ou dans des assiettes communes: approche des recettes et portions standard pour la collecte des données MDD-W
    Une annexe à Diversité alimentaire minimale chez les femmes - Un guide de mesure actualisé: de la collecte des données à l’action
    2024
    Also available in:

    Ce document fournit des conseils sur la façon de traiter les plats composés lors de la collecte et de la construction de l'indicateur de la diversité alimentaire minimale chez les femmes (MDD-W). Les plats composés - tels que les soupes, les ragoûts, les currys et les sandwichs – renvoient à des recettes qui contiennent deux ingrédients ou plus. Certains ingrédients peuvent être utilisés en grandes quantités, tandis que d'autres peuvent être utilisés en plus petites quantités, par exemple pour ajouter de la saveur. Le présent document se concentre sur les plats composés consommés hors du domicile ou dans des assiettes communes (c'est-à-dire des plats ou des pots partagés) et qui n'ont pas été préparés par les répondants eux-mêmes.

    Integrating Minimum Dietary Diversity for Women (MDD-W) into multitopic surveys
    Simple dietary data for better nutrition
    2024
    Also available in:

    Poor diets are a leading cause of death and disease, yet a chronic lack of dietary data jeopardizes effective, evidence-based actions on nutrition. The Minimum Dietary Diversity for Women (MDD-W) indicator is a simple, food group-based indicator that can be integrated into existing large-scale surveys with relative ease, enabling the collection of valuable data on dietary diversity. This can in turn inform policies and interventions to improve nutrition in low- and middle-income countries. As a low-cost, easy-to-collect and easy-to-interpret indicator, MDD-W has already been successfully integrated into several large-scale surveys, including the Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) Program of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and the Gallup© World Poll. Including MDD-W in more multitopic surveys will strengthen the global knowledge base on diets, and help countries monitor and achieve their nutrition goals.

    Minimum dietary diversity for women
    An updated guide to measurement - from collection to action

    Women of reproductive age (WRA) are often nutritionally vulnerable because of the physiological demands of pregnancy and lactation. Requirements for most nutrients are higher for pregnant and lactating women than for adult men. The Minimum Dietary Diversity for WRA (MDD-W) indicator is a food-based diversity indicator that has been shown to reflect one key dimension of diet quality: micronutrient adequacy summarized across 11 micronutrients (Martin-Prével et al., 2015). Since the launch of the MDD-W indicator in 2015, new global developments and research conducted in three countries to further determine best practices in the data collection resulted in new information and guidelines. This research was supported by capacity-development activities on the assessment of individual food consumption. This publication is an update to the 2016 FAO/FHI 360 joint publication MDD-W: A Guide to Measurement. It includes guidance on the most accurate and valid methodologies on collecting, analyzing, interpreting, and presenting data on women’s dietary diversity, for use in research, impact assessment and large-scale, health and nutrition surveys such as the Demographic Health Survey (DHS), to generate nationally representative data, that are comparable over time and across countries. In addition to supporting the regular collection of high-quality dietary data following standardized methodologies, the publication also aims to promote dialogues on and appropriate application of the data towards informing policy and programming decisions and monitoring and evaluation of nutrition outcomes and progress at global, regional, and country levels.
