New Findings! Multisectoral community development in Nepal has greater effects on child growth and diet than nutrition education alone
Newly published research comparing the impact on child diet and growth of a multisectoral community intervention v. nutrition education and livestock management training alone.
Children in Full Package households had better endline anthropometry (weight-for-age, weight-for-height, mid-upper-arm-circumference Z-scores), DD, and more consumption of ASF, after adjusting for household- and child-specific characteristics.
In this longitudinal study, a comprehensive multisectoral intervention was more successful in improving key growth indicators as well as diet quality in young children.
