****The World Food Program developed the Food Consumption Score (FCS) to be used to assess nutrition at the household level in a less complex manner, more suited to complex development settings. The FCS is a composite score that is based on dietary diversity, food frequency and relative nutritional importance of different food groups.  This methodology is standardized, efficient, suited for complex settings, simple to use, and allows for comparability of nutrition and food security across regions and countries.
