can be used in attaining sufficient, safe and nutritious food security. The main purpose of this
research, performed in 2006-2007, was to identify the effectiveness of ICT in improving the
food utilization of rural Iranian households. The results showed that, according to the experts’
point of view, the situation of food utilization in rural Iranian households was unsuitable, but
that ICT could play an important role in improving the food utilization. The results of stepwise
regressions showed that informing rural people about food, improving making decision,
improving the power of acquiring individual information, rural literacy, facilitators and content
of old technologies were determined to account for 73% of the variance of the food utilization
of rural Iranian households.
