MALNUTRITION, WITH ITS 2 CONSTITUENTS of protein–energy malnutrition and micronutrient deficiencies, continues to be a major health burden in developing countries. It is globally the most important risk factor for illness and death, with hundreds of millions of pregnant women and young children particularly affected. Apart from marasmus and Cited by: This paper reviews the position of the weaning foods which have been developed since the s in tropical countries. Well-known brand names include Incaparina (Guatemala), Faffa (Ethiopia), and Indian Multipurpose food. Most of these foods were developed on the assumption that weaning children in the countries concerned were poorly fed in comparison with the rest Cited by: 8.
