Breastfeeding and time of complementary food introduction as predictors of obesity in children.
The purpose of this study was to identify the predictors of child undernutrition and anemia among children 6—24 months old in the East Mamprusi district, Northern region, Ghana. This cross-sectional study recruited children and their mothers. Weight, height and hemoglobin levels of the children were measured. A structured questionnaire based on the World Health Organization's indicators for assessing infant and young child feeding practices was used to collect data on parents' socioeconomic status, household characteristics, hygiene and sanitation practices, mothers' knowledge on feeding practices such as child's meal frequency and dietary diversity and child morbidity within the past two weeks. Predictors of child nutritional status were determined using multinomial logistic regression analysis.
Nutritional deficiencies are a major problem among developing countries including Myanmar. They can occur in all age groups, but the impact is more severe among children age 6—23 months as this period is critical for child development, and irreversible damages can occur due to nutritional deficiencies. Proper infant and young child feeding practices are pivotal to tackle nutritional problems and to prevent irreversible consequences among children. To assess the current feeding practices and associations with nutritional status, we conducted a secondary data analysis using the —16 Myanmar Demographic and Health Survey. A total of 1, children age 6—23 months were included in this analysis. Breastfeeding reduced the odds of being stunted.

Design: Cross-sectional study. The questionnaire, of our own design, integrated 13 factors. Results: The first CF was introduced at 5. Early introduction of CF was identified in Conclusion: Recognition of the factors leading to early introduction of CF allows the implementation of effective prevention strategies by health professionals.

There are little up-to-date data available on the duration of exclusive breastfeeding in Lithuania. The aim of our study was to examine the factors that could influence exclusive breastfeeding during the first 6 months of life. We used binary logistic regression to determine the factors that impacted exclusive breastfeeding during the first 6 months following childbirth.

Metrics details. Poor complementary feeding of children aged 6—23 months contributes to the characteristics negative growth trends and deaths observed in developing countries. Evidences have shown that promotion of appropriate complementary feeding practices reduces the incidence of stunting and leads to better health and growth outcome. This study was aimed at assessing practices of complementary feeding and associated factors among mothers of children aged 6—23 months. A community-based cross sectional study design was conducted among mothers who had children with 6—23 months of age in the ten randomly selected Kebeles smallest administrative unit. A multistage sampling technique was used to identify study subjects. Data were collected using pre-tested structured questionnaire.
Adequate nutrition is essential during the lactation period for better maternal and child health outcomes. Although food insecurity and dietary monotony defined as less diverse diet , two important determinants of undernutrition, are endemic in the rural mountains of Nepal, insufficiently examined and assessed for risk factors in mothers during lactation, a life stage of high nutritional demand. This study aimed to assess the status and factors associated with food insecurity and dietary diversity among lactating mothers residing in the mountains of Nepal. A community-based cross-sectional study was conducted in an urban municipality in the mountainous Bajhang District of far-western Nepal. The sampling frame and strategy led to randomly selected lactating mothers. Additional information on socio-demographics and risk factors were collected. Multivariable logistics regression assessed correlates of study outcomes.
Despite the agreed global and national stunting reduction targets, Uganda has made very little progress. Understanding context-specific risk factors for stunted growth is therefore pertinent to designing programs to address the problem. A cross-sectional study was conducted in 32 randomly selected villages in Buhweju district, Southwest Uganda. A regression analysis was conducted to examine the associations between potential risk factors and stunted growth.
