Determine the indicator's value by conducting individual interviews with a representative sample of women aged 15 - 49 years:
1) Check whether yesterday was a special day (religious festival or celebration) when unusually varied or limited diet was eaten - if so, do not proceed with collecting dietary data, as it is likely that they will not reflect a typical diet.
2) List all meals that the respondent ate in the previous day using the Recording Meals Form (see below, including specific survey questions).
3) Double check the meals composition (e.g. porridge with or without milk).
4) Check for any snacks (including fruits) which were not mentioned.
5) Only then record in the questionnaire which food groups were eaten. Double check with the respondent regarding foods eaten from all the food groups that were not mentioned (for example: "Did you yesterday eat any eggs?")
6) Count the number of consumed food groups consumed by the interviewed women during the previous day and night.
7) To calculate the indicator's value, divide the number of women who consumed food from at least 5 food groups by the total number of interviewed women. Multiply the result by 100 to convert it to percentages.
