Children in food-insecure households are more likely to have poor nutrition and to be stunted, wasted, and underweight than those in food-secure households. Dietary diversity mediates the relationship between food insecurity and undernutrition but its impact varies seasonally. Seasonality and dietary diversity should be considered when designing population-level food-based interventions.
