The SUN MEAL Results Framework seeks to track the coverage of nutrition interventions targeted to women during pregnancy. The data from these additional questions would be very useful in this regard.

We recommend prioritizing indicator #3 since it gives a better understanding on the "quality" of the service. We believe that indicator #2 (assessing weight) is not as useful.

We currently have no source of data on dietary interventions during pregnancy that is comparable across the 60 SUN countries. We are currently restricted to monitoring proportion of population benefiting from social protection programmes; the addition of a question on receipt of food or cash assistance during pregnancy would enable us to track these nutrition-specific actions for our specific target group of interest (women during pregnancy).
