In preparation for Study 2, with its emphasis on predictors of mental development, we conducted multiple linear regressions on the two strongest candidates, namely length-for-age and stimulation, to determine whether family SES or child's diet best predicted them.
Infants with length-for-age <-2 SD (LAZ) below WHO reference population were classified as stunted and <-3 SD (LAZ) as severely stunted.
To figure weight category and length-for-age and weight-for-age ratios, standardized length and weight means for Paraguayan children (taken from growth charts published by the Paraguayan Ministry of Health) were used as the index of comparison.
No other differences in serum retinol were observed across neonatal strata of birthweight, body mass index-for-age and length-for-age.
The meal frequency of CFs of infants was positively and significantly associated with weight-for-age and length-for-age indices both at 68 months (p<0.
The mean z-score values for length-for-age of both the groups were negative, indicating a shift towards a slowing in linear growth according to the international criteria.
For classifying the nutritional status of infants, we compared measurements of length-for-age and weight-for-length with the NCHS standard reference.
Weight gain was also positively associated with age, length-for-age z-score, frequency of feeding of khichuri, egg, and potato.
Z-scores of weight-for-length and length-for-age were computed using EPINUT according to the National Center for Health Statistics standards, reference of 1978.
The following information was abstracted from the record of each child: age, sex, anthropometric measurements (weight-for-age, weight-for-length, and length-for-age (22) calculated as the percentage of the median of the National Center for Health Statistics standard and z-score), type of feeding, mother's level of education, family income, duration of diarrhoea, number of stools during the last 24 hours, dehydration status, presence of xerophthalmia, oedema of extremities, history of taking oral rehydration solution (ORS) or antimicrobial/antidiarrhoeal drugs before admission, and presence of acute lower respiratory tract infection diagnosed clinically, etc.
