The consumption of macronutrients and micronutrients has received little attention in previous research on nutrition intake, which has primarily focused on dietary diversity. It was demonstrated through the examination of data gathered from smallholder farm households in Kenya that agricultural commercialization significantly enhances the intake of nutrients like zinc and iron by households. Second, we use propensity score matching to combat information acquisition selection bias.

Fat and Trans Fat

Observed personal and household characteristics like age, sex, education, family size and farm size have a significant impact on people's decision to obtain nutritional information from relatives, friends and neighbors. Hence, it is fundamental for represent choice inclination to infer significant bits of knowledge. Thirdly, in addition to estimating the effects of information acquisition for the entire sample, we examine the effects disaggregated by age and household size to gain a deeper comprehension. Infectious diseases like COVID-19 can be effectively prevented and treated with a well-balanced diet. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends eating more fresh vegetables, fruits and unprocessed foods, drinking enough water (8-10 cups), reducing salt, sugar, saturated fat and trans fat and eating less outside the home. Simultaneously, it is prescribed not to smoke, to do normal actual work, to give a satisfactory rest design and to decrease the anxiety to help a solid life in this period. Vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other substances with a nutritional or physiological effect are included in the category of nutritional supplements. Over the past ten years, the use of nutritional supplements has increased and between 50% and 75% of people uses them on a regular basis. Supporting the immune system is critical, despite the fact that there is no specific supplement that has been shown to reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection. When taken in the right amounts and at the right times, supplements made from herbs like turmeric, echinacea, ginger, tea, carob, black pepper and sumac, as well as other spices, fruits and vegetables, can help the immune system function better when combined with a healthy diet. By reducing the pathological effects of COVID-19, nutritional supplements can have both prophylactic and therapeutic effects. Sales of elderberry, zinc, multivitamins and vitamin D increased by 415%, 255%, 23% and 22%, respectively, during the initial week of the epidemic. Furthermore, a couple of concentrates on metropolitan families have examined the significance of data obtaining to family food security and sustenance consumption. Nourishing data works on dietary quality in the US. However, very little is known about how and how much information acquisition affects the amount of nutrition consumed by rural households in developing nations.

Family Food Security

The essential target is to assess the impacts of data obtaining on nourishment admission, utilizing information gathered from 915 rustic families in Shandong, Guangxi, Henan and Sichuan regions in China. More specifically, we estimate the influence that peers' nutritional information rather than other sources have on nutrient intake. Albeit provincial occupants might get required nourishment data from various sources, including the public authority, food markets, virtual entertainment, TV and radio promoting and peers, they will more often than not depend on peers living in that frame of mind for dietary exhortation. In addition, rural households are particularly susceptible to nutritional deficiency as a result of poverty, inadequate information and technology infrastructure, low educational attainment and a lack of awareness regarding healthy diets. The fact that China has the second-largest rural population in the world more than 500 million people must be emphasized. Therefore, if China is to improve its overall quality of life, it is essential to improve the nutrition of rural households. As a result, malnutrition is regarded as a risk factor that can be changed. Nutrition risk screening is not practiced on a regular basis, despite the fact that 50% of cancer patients are found to be malnourished (or at risk of malnutrition) at their first visit to an oncologist and that it is estimated that 80% of cancer patients will develop malnutrition at some point during their treatment. In a recent survey of 300 Italian oncologists, only 64% of the interviewees strongly agreed with nutrition risk screening at the first oncological visit, despite their strong awareness of the nutritional issues cancer patients face.
