Baroda Journal of Nutrition 1983; 9: 416-419

Changing ecology of childhood malnutrition in urban areas and its relevance for intervention programmes

The Nutrition Clinic of the University College Hospital, Ibadan, Nigeria, was started in 1957. In its 1st year there were about 400 new cases of malnutrition of children, and in spite of increased clinic facilities the number of new cases was no less. In the past 5 years there had been increasing numbers of cases of child malnutrition caused not by poverty but by inadequacy of the mother. Two examples are given. A boy 3 months old weighed 4.5 kg and had no oedema.
