Mama na Dada: Nutrition and Cognition in Kunya village

Mama na Dada

Project Objectives

1. Continue assessing the presence of malnutrition in children in Kunya village, and compare nutritional status of children involved in feeding program with children who do not receive supplemental food and follow up longitudinally to assess changes over time. Nutrition assessments will then be used to analyze the potential physical and cognitive effects of malnutrition.

2. Determine the common prenatal and birth practices in Kunya village, understand preferences and obstacles surrounding birthing options and examine sources through which women receive their pregnancy and maternal health information.
