Nutritional status of Kadazan children in a rural district in Sabah, Malaysia



Southeast Asian Journal of Tropical Medicine and Public Health 24(2): 293-301



The nutritional status of 896 Kadazan children below 6 years of age from 23 villages of Tambunan District were studied. When stunting and wasting were defined as those who were below two standard deviations of height-for-age and weight-for-height (Waterlow et al, 1977) and based on the National Center for Health Statistics reference population, 67.6% of boys and 66.8% of girls were stunted while 12.3% of boys and 8.3% of girls were wasted. Weaning foods and toddler feeding practices were unsatisfactory. The role of health education on child care and feeding practices is emphasized.
