Abstract :

Undernutrition during first thousand days affects the overall development of child. There are different strategies adapted to reduced child undernutrition. We therefore studied the effect of supplementation of food mix for 90 days on the nutritional status of undernourished children aged between 9– 36 months (n=50). Baseline data collected and children selected based on the inclusion and exclusion criteria. The anthropometric indicators used to study the improvement in the nutritional status of children. T test used to compare means of Z score from baseline and end point of the intervention. The nutritional status at the end of 90 days in terms of wasting, stunting was improved in the children from experimental group who completed the intervention. The wasting status of experimental group children was improved better than the control group (p 0.000, t 9.310). Providing supplementary mix prepared using locally available ingredient with minimal processing can be one of the best strategy to reduce child undernutrition.
