Loss of agro-biodiversity is taking place at a high rate in Kenya. Many nutritious locally adopted indigenous species are being abandoned in favor of few exotic varieties. This has affected diets of preschool children; their diets are mainly starchy staples, little/no animal products and few fruits and vegetables.
