“Food prices were high, and the dal became watery”. Mixed-method evidence on household food insecurity and children’s diets in India

Elisabetta Aurino () and Virginia Morrow

World Development, 2018, vol. 111, issue C, 211-224

Abstract: Food insecurity and malnutrition are key policy priorities in India. Evidence on children’s experiences of household food insecurity and how food insecurity influences their dietary quality is limited for India and other low- and middle-income countries. Evidence on mid-childhood and adolescence is even scarcer. We present longitudinal evidence on household food insecurity and child diets by drawing on a mixed methods study with two cohorts of children from Andhra Pradesh and Telangana (India).
