Food Prices for Nutrition: Cost and Affordability of a Healthy Diet and other Indicators (Self-Paced)


The Food Prices for Nutrition (FPN) eLearning course trains users on the construction of diet cost and affordability indicators focusing on access to a healthy diet and other dietary standards. It covers how these indicators are constructed at the global level and the nutritional concepts behind them including the use of a global standard reference of a Healthy Diet Basket and Food-Based Dietary Guidelines. The course covers the data inputs used in the construction of the indicators, and their interpretation and application. Furthermore, it equips users with the knowledge and tools to enable them to construct similar indicators at the national or regional level, taking account of each population’s local food availability and eating habits, and to apply these indicators in national policy making. The course also introduces the Food Prices for Nutrition project and partnership, as well as its objectives to provide metrics to monitor people’s access to healthy diets and inform relevant policy interventions focused on achieving food security and nutrition.
