Vitenskapelig tittel:
Nutritional interventions during infancy to improve neurodevelopmental outcomes

Around 250 million under-five children in low and middle income countries (LMICs) do not reach their full developmental potential. Given the current scientific evidence that brain growth occurs maximally in the first 2-3 years of postnatal life, particularly in the period of infancy, testing the usefulness of optimized nutritional interventions in this narrow window of opportunity is unarguably a need. Complementary feeding is usually inadequate (with respect to quality and quantity) in Indian children. Our present understanding is limited on the effect of providing good quality balanced protein energy micronutrient enriched complementary feeds to infants on their neurodevelopment. Further, evidence is lacking on the effect of supplementing food with higher amounts and improved quality of protein to infants on their neurodevelopment. The proposed study aims to provide answers to these pertinent issues.
