Nutrition and Food Security: The Role of Forest Resources in Eastern Zambia

Forest foods can play a vital role in maintaining balance and variety in people’s diets by providing foods of different food groups and supplying diverse foods within a food group.  A study in Eastern province found that not all food groups are supplied by the forests.  Food groups provided by the forests in the area are non-starchy vegetables, non-starchy fruits and proteins. There is at least one forest food in each meal in addition to the wild fruits consumed as snacks.
