“Using mobile methodologies to collect dietary diversity data for young children and women of reproductive age helps to provide early warning of deteriorating nutrition situations and support global efforts to strengthen nutrition monitoring.”

This World Food Programme (WFP) case study reports on the results of an assessment in Kenya to determine whether use of Computer-Assisted Telephone Interviewing (CATI) with women is both feasible and as effective as face-to-face interviews in collecting accurate data on minimum acceptable diet (MAD) in children 6-23 months of age and minimum dietary diversity among women of reproductive age (MDD-W). The report offers recommendations for overcoming potential barriers to effective use of mobile phone surveys with women and suggests areas for follow-up research.
