This paper considers the needs of field level nutrition educators in developing countries for an easy method of giving usable dietary advice suited to specific family compositions, incomes, production patterns, seasons, and food preferences. It describes the development and application of a tool which combines available data on seasonal food prices, amino acid requirements, and amino acid compositions of foods. The accuracy and implications of the tool are discussed.
