The effects on weight and attendance of a supplementary feeding programme operating in two under-5 clinics in Lesotho


, : The effects on weight and attendance of a supplementary feeding programme operating in two under-5 clinics in Lesotho. Annals of Tropical Paediatrics 10(4): 411-419

The routinely collected weight data of 2202 pre-school children who visited two under-5 clinics in Lesotho between 1978 and 1983 were used to calculate growth curves and to assess the effects of supplementary feeding. Up to the age of 5 months growth curves were above the NCHS reference. Growth started to decrease at the age of 3 months and stabilized at 11-13 months at the 10th percentile of the reference.
