dc.description.abstract This study estimated the cost of healthy eating in Kenya, exploring how inequalities in terms of socioeconomic, gender, or residential differences influence food choices, in support of formulation and implementation of better policies, and health strategies. The report provides details of the study methodology, participants, survey instruments, and analysis. A Healthy Diet Index (HDI) was generated as a measure of healthy-eating based on household consumption. Low and middle-income-countries (LMICs) are experiencing an epidemiological transition characterized by an increase in chronic non-communicable diseases (NCDs). At the same time, dietary behaviours have shifted from traditional diets to those containing increased saturated fats, salt and sugars. en
