英文摘要

Background: Some researchers have developed child feeding indices to summarize child feeding practices so that they can compare child feeding practices across countries and monitor changes over time within a given country.

Aims: An adapted version of the infant and child feeding index (ICFI) developed by Ruel and Menon was used to examine its association with nutritional status of infants living in a rural community in China.

Methods: A cross-sectional survey of 501 children aged 6-11 mo was conducted with their mothers in :3 townships between May 2006 and March 2007. ICFI was developed based on 24-h dietary recall and food frequency information. The associations between ICFI and anthropometric indices including length-for-age (LAZ), weight-for-age (WAZ), and weight-for-length (WLZ) Z-scores were examined separately. General linear regression models were used to adjust for potential confounders including the children′s, parents′ and households′ sociodemographic characteristics.

Results: The ICFI was associated with both WAZ (adjusted WAZ means: 0.39, 0.47, and 0.54 for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd tercile, respectively, P < 0.05) and WLZ (adjusted WLZ means: 0.47, 0.74, and 0.79 for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd tercile, respectively, P < 0.05). But it was not associated with children′s LAZ. Among the components of ICFI, dietary diversity, meal frequency and bottlefeeding were positively associated with the children′s anthropometric indices.

Conclusions: ICFI and its components could be used to assess effect of complementary feeding practices on child growth. (C) 2008 Elsevier Ireland Ltd. All rights reserved.
