Abstract

This paper explores the dual form of malnutrition existing in the same household i.e. occurrence of both under-nutrition and over-nutrition together and determining the adequacy of food consumption in mother-child pairs.30 mother-child pairs were included in the study. Nutritional status was assessed by WHO criterion. 50% of mothers were aged between 25-30 years, 36.7% had graduated. The prevalence of overweight mothers-underweight child pair was found to be 23%. Significant difference was reported between the intake adequacy of cereals, vegetables, fats and oils, carbohydrate, invisible fat, visible fat, total fat and fiber, among the mother-child pairs. Also MAR (Mean Adequacy Ratio) of nutrients revealed that mothers had significantly better nutritional adequacy than children (p=0.01). Therefore, mothers had a better nutritional status when compared with children. Dual form of malnutrition exists within the same household and the food intake adequacy of the child is influenced by mother’s food intake.

Key words: Malnutrition, dual-burden, mother-child pair, nutrient adequacy, nutrition transition

I’m so happy to testify of the good work of Dr. AGBOMINA I Suffer from Herpes virus since 2007 and i had frequent symptoms in my private area, after some time it will go away after using acyclovir drugs, then come back after some months. it was disheartening since i have been diagnosed, but after finding Dr. AGBOMINA and his reviews i was convinced that he will definitely cure me and so i contacted and he told me how to get his medicine and using it for just 14 days and i will go and check up and first i said how can that be possible but i used his herbal medicine after making purchase and truly i used it and went for the test again, and my result came back negative. so i made it a task to share this good testimony in the internet so that those sick can benefit and get cured.
