This side event will provide an overview of the new and innovative GDQS-Meal and Menu metrics and highlight several country cases where the GDQS-Meal and Menu metrics are being used and discuss programmatic and policy implications.
Despite widespread school feeding and other institutional food service programs, there has been limited investment in designing rigorous metrics to assess the quality of meals served. To address this gap, the GDQS-Meal and Menu metrics have been developed by Intake – Center for Dietary Assessment at FHI Solutions and the Rockefeller Foundation, in consultation with the World Food Program and other partners to provide a standardized, comprehensive, low-cost, robust measure of the quality of the meals served in schools and other institutional settings.
The GDQS-Meal and Menu metrics are part of a larger effort to improve the food supply and procurement pipeline by encouraging shifts to healthier meals (e.g., switching from refined to whole grains and unfortified to fortified or biofortified foods).
