The present study has investigated the impact of agricultural diversity on food security in Benin. Agriculture plays a very important role in the Beninese economy and contributes to more than a third of national GDP despite pockets of food insecurity in several municipalities in Benin. Various efforts have been put in place, such as the diversification of the sector, but the crisis persists. Descriptive methods followed by multiple linear regressions were used to understand this impact. The 1985 to 2014 FAO Consumption Standards data, the population size price series for each production and the market were obtained at ONASA by product and by market. The size of Benin's population was obtained at the National Institute of Statistics and Economic Analysis (INSAE). The results of the study has showed that the average caloric intake is estimated at 3288 Kcal / head / day over the period 2005-2014 and the average intake of Protein is estimated at 75.6 g / head / day. The population has increased from 2003 to 2012. Prices have increased and adjusted to the needs of the producer, but the demand for food and nutrition is not covered by production. In other words, the supply of food energy is greater than the needs of the population, but the nutritional demand of the population in animal protein is not covered by the national supply of agricultural production

Key words:
Impact, diversity, agricultural, insecurity, food
