Diet and Nutritional Assessment of Selected Infants and Young Children in Rural Areas of Haryana


Abstract

UNICEF has pointed out that malnutrition is the biggest single cause of infant and child mortality in the poor countries of the world. The infants should receive the highest priority in any developmental programme because the progress and prosperity of a country depends on the care given to children. Breast fed children which grow normally during the first six months of their life show slow growth during the transitional period of weaning because they do not get enough of nutritious foods needed by them.
