The Fill the Nutrient Gap (FNG) assessment brings together information from multiple sectors to inform the
prevention of malnutrition. Integral to the assessment are food price information and data on the economics of households, such as income and expenditure. A food systems approach is used to contextualize information on dietary intake considering production, processing, transport, marketing and consumption. Lack of data and uncertain quality are important challenges in the assessment.The assessment also highlights the informative
value-add that nutrition data has for other fields, such as agriculture, education, the private sector or the supply chain, which can help to identify opportunities for making them more nutrition-sensitive.
