The 2008 Uganda food consumption survey: Determining the dietary patterns of Ugandan women and children

The Uganda Food Consumption Survey was undertaken to provide the critical body of evidence that policy makers and program designers need to make informed decisions about effective investments to reduce deficiencies of vitamins and minerals in Uganda.

The survey itself was carried out in one urban and two rural regions of Uganda in 2008 to more fully characterise the dietary patterns of children 24-59 months of age and women of reproductive age  (15-49 years).

The survey provides information enabling development of a baseline for strengthening the Ugandan National Food Fortification Program as well as other micronutrient interventions. The information presented is intended to assist Ugandan policy makers and program designers to select and tailor interventions designed to fit the specific contexts found in Uganda.
