First proposed in 2010, the use of ?value chain analysis? to identify opportunities for targeted nutrition interventions in food systems is still an emerging method. This review explores and summarizes the application of value chain analysis to nutrition and from this provides five insights into how to more effectively conduct value chain analysis for nutrition: 1) use a consumer perspective to inform selection of foods and chains; 2) consider the research question, available resources, and the type of chain; 3) situate consumer research at the center of the analysis; 4) assess economic trade-offs; and 5) pay attention to governance and stakeholders? capacity for and incentives to change.
