Do higher levels of farm production diversity contribute to improved diets in smallholder farm households? This study adds to existing literature by using and comparing different indicators of diet quality, helping to better understand some of the underlying linkages. The analysis builds on data from Indonesia, Kenya, and Uganda to break down assumptions regarding the relationship between production and dietary quality. The results suggest that improving the functioning of agricultural markets and smallholder market access, rather than boosting production diversity, is a key strategy to enhance nutrition.
