Assignment Report: Team of researchers from Bayero University Kano receives grant to compare feeding practices of mothers of stunted and non-stunted children

The study aims to highlight good feeding practices which support healthy child growth and development in Northern Nigeria

Abstract

In March 2015, a team in the Department of Community Medicine of Bayero University Kano led by Professor Zubairu Iliyasu received a research grant for a new research project to compare the feeding practices of mothers with stunted and non-stunted children. With the grant awarded by ORIE, the research findings will be important in a context in which around half of all children under five are stunted. The study aims to highlight good feeding practices which support healthy child growth and development in the Northern Nigeria context. The research findings will be used to strengthen the implementation and scale-up of infant and young child feeding (IYCF) counselling programmes in the Northern region.
