Mali Diet Diversity and Food Security for Agricultural Biodiversity Assessment
The questionnaire elicited information on foods consumed and their sources for selected mothers and children of the households interviewed for the ABD-Assessment (24-hour recall); information on young and child feeding practices; and on household food secuirty. All data on foods are disaggregated to ingredient, and then classified by food group. In the same households selected for the ABD-Assessment, one woman per household was selected. The first choice of respondent was a woman that had a child between 6 and 59 months old; if no woman was available with a child between 6 and 59 months, the interview was perfomred with the woman that usually takes care of the food preparation in the household. In case there were more women with children between 6 and 59 months living in the household,one of them was selected randomly . The same procedure was done if more than one child of the selected woman is eligible to participate in the study. Three villages in the Sikasso District of Mali were surveyed: Fakoro (Lat 12°13074, Lon 005°20156); Kani (Lat 12°15011, Lon 005°10827); N'goutjina (Lat 12°17961, Lon 005°28372).
