Post a reply: One Meat/Fish/Poultry/Egg indicator?

Use of en-net is subject to the Terms and Conditions.

Can Organ Meats/Fish/Poultry/Eggs be combined into one "Animal protein" indicator for calculating dietary diversity in Children (IYCF indicator)? The IYCF indicator guidelines specify that meats/fish/poultry should not be grouped with eggs since each group is scored separately i.e M/F/P = 1 and Eggs=1. Why are they separated for calculation of children's dietary diversity score (IYCF indicator)? Is it because children are more likely to eat eggs? Or because of differences in micronutrient content?
