Infant and young child feeding practices and nutritional deficiencies in the Philippines

Project Completed

To better understand the associations between feeding practices and the nutritional status of children 6 to 23 months of age in urban areas, GroundWork has supported GAIN to analyze data and draft a manuscript from a cross-sectional survey of five urban centers in the Philippines. Data on infant and young child feeding and nutritional status (including wasting, stunting, underweight, anemia, iron deficiency, and vitamin A deficiency) were analyzed, and the manuscript will be published in the Food and Nutrition Bulletin in mid 2013.
