Stability: How stable are food prices?

General question:

  • How stable are food prices?

Program and Policy Questions:

  • I suspect that consumption patterns shift drastically in my country depending on the season.  How can I measure the effect of seasonal variation in prices on the availability and consumption of nutrient dense foods?
  • Ever since the food price crisis in 2008, the country where I work has faced fluctuating food prices. In general terms, what is the impact of price volatility on diet diversity and how can this be measured?
