Nutritional status of tribal underfive children in Ahmadnagar District, Maharashtra in relation to weaning/feeding practices



Nutritional status of tribal underfive children in Ahmadnagar District, Maharashtra in relation to weaning/feeding practices



Indian Pediatrics 30(2): 215-222



Prevalence of malnutrition and its relation with feeding practices was studied in 605 tribal underfive children. There was a significant relation of nutritional status of preschool children to feeding practices. Exclusive breast-feeding was beneficial only up to 6 months age. After this age, it lost its advantage. Children above one year of age exclusively fed on breast had a high prevalence of malnutrition.
