Indian Diet Data Portal
About the Indian Diet Data Portal
Data on individual food consumption is needed to make agri-food policies and programmes more nutrition sensitive. The Indian Diet Data portal to summarize, in one place, what individual dietary intake data already exist for India, at the national and sub-national level.
It is designed and developed with the objective to shed light on data gaps in the country with respect to dietary intake data and to make available data more readily available to end users. It includes a compilation of metadata such as where the data were collected, from whom, when, using what tool. In some instances, microdata have also been made available.
We have taken inspiration from the global dietary database, FAO/WHO Global Individual Food consumption data Tool (GIFT)
