When women and men are equal partners in the household and make decisions together, the whole family benefits. This can improve the nutritional status of the family in particular. If a woman has influence over decision-making in the household, she is often more able to ensure that the family eats well. If a woman earns her own money, she is more likely than a man to spend it on healthy food.
