Food systems are the backbone of global diets. This tool provides an illustrative list of evidence-based nutrition-sensitive behaviors to spark ideas and discussion among activity designers and implementers. While this list can be used as a standalone resource, it also serves as a companion piece to USAID’s Designing Effective Nutrition-Sensitive Agriculture Activities Guide. This illustrative list can help to identify nutrition-sensitive behaviors across the food system and food system actors to support an activity’s nutrition outcomes. It is intended to help activity designers and implementers design more effective approaches to increase the uptake and adoption of behaviors to improve nutrition outcomes using a food systems lens.
