Iron and zinc supplementation promote motor development and exploratory behaviour among Bangladeshi infantsAmerican Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 2004Iron and zinc deficiency are prevalent during infancy in low-income countries. The objectives of this study were to examine whether a weekly supplement of iron, zinc, iron and zinc, or a micronutrient mix (MM) of 16 vitamins and minerals would alter infant development and behaviour.Document
A community-based randomized controlled trial of iron and zinc supplementation in Indonesian infants: interactions between iron and zincAmerican Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 2003Combined supplementation with iron and zinc during infancy may be effective in preventing deficiencies of these micronutrients, but knowledge of their potential interactions when given together is insufficient.Document
How changes in coverage affect equity in maternal and child health interventions in 35 Countdown to 2015 countries: an analysis of national surveysThe Lancet, 2012Achievement of global health goals will require assessment of progress not only nationally but also for population subgroups. Research in 35 countries assessed how the magnitude of socioeconomic inequalities in health changes in relation to different rates of national progress in coverage of interventions for the health of mothers and children.DocumentCochrane Library, 2013Child and adolescent obesity is increasingly prevalent, and can be associated with significant short- and long-term health consequences. This study aims to assess the efficacy of lifestyle, drug and surgical interventions for treating obesity in childhood.DocumentWiley Online Library, 2005Obesity prevention is an international public health priority. The relevance of obesity and overweight is increasing in child populations throughout the world, impacting on short and long-term health. Obesity prevention strategies for children can change behaviour but efficacy in terms of preventing obesity remains poorly understood.Document
Effect of timing of umbilical cord clamping and other strategies to influence placental transfusion at preterm birth on maternal and infant outcomesWiley Online Library, 2012Optimal timing for clamping the umbilical cord at preterm birth is unclear. Early clamping allows for immediate transfer of the infant to the neonatologist. Delaying clamping allows blood flow between the placenta, the umbilical cord and the baby to continue. The blood which transfers to the baby between birth and cord clamping is called placental transfusion.DocumentWorld Health Organization, 2013Breastfeeding has well-established short-term benefits, particularly the reduction of morbidity andDocument
Evidence-based interventions for improvement of maternal and child nutrition: what can be done and at what cost?The Lancet, 2013Maternal undernutrition contributes to 800,000 neonatal deaths annually; stunting, wasting, and micronutrient deficiencies are estimated to underlie nearly 3.1 million child deaths annually.Document2011The last five Bangladesh Demographic and Health Survey (BDHS) data8-12 from 1993 to 2007 show that there has not been significant change in exclusive breastfeeding rates nationally and this is reflected in almost static nutritional status and neonatal mortality rates.DocumentJournal of Nutrition, 2003Nutrition programmers usually discards the option of increasing animal food intake, due to the belief that poor populations lack the necessary resources to be successful in animal production, and due to the potential for ecological harm.
