Abstract

A study to assess the effectiveness of ragi kanjii versus soya milk in improving the nutritional status of malnourished pre-school children at Institute of Child Health and Hospital for Children, Chennai. Worldwide, the most common cause of malnutrition is inadequate food intake. Severe acute malnutrition should be recognized as a medical emergency with one million children under five dying in India due to malnutrition related causes. Preschool aged children in developing countries are often at risk of malnutrition because of their dependence on others for food, increased protein and energy requirements, immature immune system causing a greater susceptibility to infection, and exposure to non-hygienic conditions. Need for the study: The effects of malnutrition are many, which make the child prone to other diseases. Thus proper supplementation and appropriate education to the mothers will definitely help in reducing the mortality and morbidity in children. Objectives : To evaluate the efficacy of ragi kanjii on the nutritional status of the pre-school malnourished children, to evaluate the efficacy of soya milk on the nutritional status of the pre-school malnourished children, to compare the efficacy of ragi kanjii over soya milk on the nutritional status of pre-school malnourished children and to associate efficacy of ragi kanjii and soya milk on nutritional status with the selected demographic variables. Methodology : Research Approach: Quantitative research approach. Research Design: Quasi experimental design.
