Adolescents in Kenya skipped meals and reduced the amount and variety of foods consumed during the COVID-19 pandemic and reported working in the informal sector and selling personal items to support their families. Authors recommend programming to strengthen and improve access to social protection measures and agricultural initiatives for vulnerable families with adolescents and help adolescents develop life skills to encourage good nutrition.
