Indicators for assessing infant and young child feeding practices
Definition, Measurement, and Country Profiles
This document presents new and updated indicators to assess infant and young child feeding practices at household level.
It is a follow-up to the 1991 document 'Indicators for assessing breastfeeding practices'. New indicators for assessing feeding practices in children 6-23 months have been included.
Indicators can be assessed through large-scale population-based surveys, including the Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) and the Multiple Cluster Indicator Survey (MICS). Part I is also available in French and Spanish and Part II is also available in French.
