This is another very important indicator proposed by DataDENT. Nigeria has mandated the fortification of oil, sugar, wheat and maize flours since 2002, and there are continuous efforts to enforce compliance. Yet there is no representative data about the percentage of the population that is even covered by fortifiable forms of these vehicles and the potential to benefit from fortification. Including the indicator and associated questions will contribute to rectifying the paucity of food-related nutrition coverage indicators in the DHS and increase DHS utility for understanding determinants of malnutrition and designing interventions.
