The Cost of a Healthy Diet, and the number of people who cannot afford a healthy diet, are reported annually alongside other traditional food security monitoring indicators by the UN State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World reports. In this session, we focus on Malawi’s context. Using food price data from Malawi, we will explore how least-cost diet(s) vary seasonally and across the country.
