Indian Diet Data

Indian Diet Data

Adequate dietary intake assessment is important not only in the study of associations between diet and health-related outcomes, but also for nutritional surveillance and gathering information for evidence-based nutrition policy planning. However, India continues to experience persistent diet data gaps.

Diet data, if compiled systematically and updated periodically, could inform evidence-based policies and programmes. With this objective, the ‘Diet Data’ portal was created on Anuvaad’s website with inspiration from the FAO/GIFT website.

A systematic search of research studies that collected diet data on the Indian population at the subnational level was conducted, and a total of 76 studies were identified. The diet data portal also includes visualisation of the nutrient data collected from these studies for 18 macro- and micronutrients created using the Tableau visualisation tool.

The Diet Data Portal on Anuvaad’s website can be accessed here.

Learning Network on Indian Diet Data

To address the gap created by the absence of such critical data, Anuvaad is also building a LEARNING NETWORK ON INDIAN DIET DATA

Key objectives of this learning network :

  • Build consensus and harmonize the diet data ecosystem.
  • Improve institutional capacity within the MoWCD for data-informed decision-making in the context of India’s dietary patterns.
  • Identify strengths and limitations of Indian diet data.
  • Develop realistic strategies to fill any gaps, through improved primary data collection.
  • Leverage tools of data science and modelling, to generate programmatically meaningful insights for diet-based interventions under Poshan 2.0
