Affordability of nutritious complementary foods in Eastern and Southern Africa

These briefs are part of a series on affordability of nutritious complementary foods by GAIN and UNICEF under the Regional Initiatives for Sustained Nutrition and Growth (RISING) project.

Inadequate physical and economic access is one of the primary barriers to consumption of nutritious complementary foods. However, the extent to which affordability is a barrier for specific nutrients, which foods are the most affordable sources of these nutrients and which households are able to afford them in adequate quantities for young children is unclear. These briefs summarise the affordability of nutritious complementary foods that could fill important nutrient gaps in Ethiopia, Mozambique, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia and discuss implications for programmes and policy.
