FAO Nigeria completely supports the recommendation to include the FIES in DHS. Understanding food-based determinants of malnutrition is an important gap in DHS, since health, environment and care aspects are more broadly covered. Food is a fundamental determinant of not just nutrition, but also health and reproductive function. Given that DHS is the authoritative data source for Nigeria and many other countries, the incorporation of FIES in the DHS will increase the utility and impact of the survey for informing decisions to improve nutrition and health.
