Study on the impact of armed conflicts on the nutritional situation of children

Author: FAO
Resource type: Report

A report that contains Chapter 5 on Inadequate Care. Has a flow chart that highlights how conflict can lead to inadequate nutrition and care for infants. Looks at infants <5 years highlights problems they might have especially when it comes to getting advice - elderly dead or not in same place - especially for weaning practices and local foods.

Annex 5: Proposed guidelines for the protection and promotion of breast- and infant feeding during emergencies (The guidelines are the precursor to the IFE Core Gp documents)
Annex 7: Distribution of infant formula: the appropriate response to child malnutrition in Iraq? (Uses examples from Africa to show that malnutrition does not reduce breastfeeding and that stress did not have an effect)
