Reducing Malnutrition through access and consumption of nutritious and safe foods

This study was realized in 2020 in Murrebue, Mecufi District, Mozambique, in collaboration with Helvetas and Oikos, funded by the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN). Based on a survey using 24-hour dietary recall, it was identified that low consumption of vitamin A rich foods was a major driver of poor diets. A project was designed, aiming to increase access to and consumption of safe and nutritious foods by evaluating possible behaviour change interventions. It was shown that growing pumpkins and drying ripe mangoes (instead of drying unripe mangoes, which are low in vitamin A – the standard practice of many households) improved access to vitamin A rich food.
