Design and Baseline Characteristics of a Study Comparing Four Supplementary Foods in the Prevention of Stunting and Wasting Among Children 6-23 Months in Burkina Faso

Publication Type

The Food Aid Quality Review (FAQR), a study implemented by Tufts University, recommended improvements in the formulations and programming of existing Title II supplementary foods. To test these recommendations, we are examining the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of four different supplementary foods in the prevention of stunting and wasting in children age 6 to 23 months in Burkina Faso. The objective of this report is to describe the study methods and baseline characteristics of the sample, including baseline measures of stunting and wasting.
