Evaluation of the Nutritional Status of Malnourished Children and the Attitude of the Mothers in a Nutrition Rehabilitation Centre
AbstractMalnutrition among pre-school children is a common problem in oil developing countries including India. There are several approaches to combat malnutrition in preschool children. Of these approaches, dietary supplementation and nutrition education have been two commonly followed methods for combating malnutrition. Many of the methods of education provide very little contact between the mother and the nutritionist. Therefore, institutionalisation of children along with their mothers can provide greater scope for convincing the mothers about the diet of their children. They can practically observe the good effects of the suggested feeding schedule.
