Agriculture Production and Markets
Livestock value chains could be used to improve the iron status in the people and their families who participate in them, if some of the livestock is consumed at home or the income earned is used to buy iron-rich foods. The people involved in agriculture value chains are not always the most vulnerable families, however. It has not yet been well-documented of the effect of agriculture value chains on food intake or nutritional status. Authors of a review of the subject suggest that in order to obtain nutrition outcomes from agricultural value change, there will need to be specific nutrition goals and a clearly defined nutrition problem, among other considerations.
