The fortification of cereal-based food rations is increasingly accepted to be the most effective way of preventing micronutrient deficiencies in large refugee camps. Little is known, however, about the degree to which such foods are acceptable to refugees, or how they actually use them. These factors are important in considering how and when the foods are fortified: before, during, or after distribution.
