Just wanted to confirm: when you want to know about food diversity at the household level the standard method is to use the 10 food groups (developped by FANTA: http://www.fantaproject.org/downloads/pdfs/HDDS_v2_Sep06.pdf) but when you are assessing food diversity in feeding children you need to take into account the 7 food groups developed/recommended by WHO. Could someone please confirm or correct me?
