To thrive, young children need more than food. It is now widely recognized that they also require a healthy and sanitary environment and adequate care and feeding practices. As governments and NGOs initiate programs to ensure child survival, health, and development, the need for simple methods and indicators to measure the effectiveness of these programs grows. With a strong focus on methodology, this food policy review describes measurement approaches, problems, and solutions and offers practical suggestions for monitoring and evaluating child nutrition programs.
