Resource description

This scoping study aims to help promote large-scale improvements in child nutrition through quality certification of local infant foods. Certification of nutrient density would allow new producers to compete with heavily advertised global brands, and thereby help families meet more of their infants’ needs than is currently possible. As a first step, this study surveys the availability of infant foods in greater Accra and tests their nutrient density so as to diagnose the need for certification, then proposes a design for its introduction that permits rigorous evaluation.
