2.8.2 The mixture of foods to use
The staple food is the common type of food that is consumed by the community. It should be part of a balanced diet because it’s the main part of most meals. The staple diet may vary from region to region. For example, ‘injera’ is the staple diet in many sites, maize in other areas, and ‘kocho’ in the southern part of the country. These foods are usually cheap, and provide most of the energy, protein and fibre in a meal, as well as some vitamins.
