I was wondering if it is somehow possible to calculate the Minimum Dietary Diversity Index for Women (MDD-W), using the data of the individual file of the NFHS-5 in India?
Some information on the consumption of food groups are given, but those are based on a frequency level (daily, weekly, occasionally, never).
In the survey summary of India NFHS-5 (2019-21) at the DHS website, the MDD-W is being named as one of the characteristics of the survey.
So that's why I am asking if there is a method to reformulate the food frequency data into something that can be used for the MDD-W (which is usually based on a 24h recall)??

Thanks in advance for any help!!
