Elevating mothers’ and women’s nutrition

This blog examines the evidence that there is substantial intra household inequality that affects women’s diets and nutrition, and that women’s undernutrition is not solely due to impoverishment. It highlights that food, education, and health systems often do not sufficiently support healthy diets, which contributes to the prevalence of maternal overweight and obesity. it concludes that while further research is needed to understand the dynamics between food practices, gender norms, and intrahousehold power relations in other contexts, it is clear that girls’ and women’s nutrition is negatively impacted by socio-economic inequality.
