RESEARCH IN FOCUS

Determinants of Underweight, Underheight, and Thinness among Filipino Children, 0-5 Years Old
Undernutrition remains as a public health problem among Filipino children, affecting nearly one in every three preschool-age and school-age children, as revealed by the 6th National Nutrition Survey (NNS), conducted by the Food and Nutrition Research Institute of the Department of Science and Technology (FNRI-DOST) in 2003. While efforts of the government and the private sectors to eradicate malnutrition are evident through their intervention programs, these have not been adequately supported by empirical data on the causes or determinants of malnutrition for program focusing purposes. This study was designed to contribute towards identifying the cost-effective programs to address undernutrition, poverty, and access to service. ABSTRACT >> POSTER

Validation of Food Insecurity Responses vis-a-vis Nutritional Status and Adequacy of Food Intake from the 6th NNS

Food insecurity is commonly assessed using the Radimer/Cornell measures (13 question items) of hunger and food insecurity which have been used in some Asian countries, e.g. Malaysia and Thailand. In the Philippines, the Social Weather Station (SWS) Survey used 2 out of the 13 question items. The FNRI food security studies adopted 10 question items, translated into Filipino, and used with limited validation as to consistency and reliability. The complete validation will increase the level of confidence in its use. ABSTRACT >> POSTER

Disparities in Infant Feeding Practices Across Households Income Groups and Education of Household Heads

Trends in infant feeding practices dramatically changed over the past five years. These behavioral changes may be the effects of rapid social and economic changes that the family had to deal with to properly feed and care for their children. An insight into some factors that may have contributed or influenced the changes in trends in infant feeding practices would benefit the nutrition education planners and program implementors, especially those who are involved in the promotion/campaign for breastfeeding in the country.
