The Mother-Child Food Relationship in the Study of Infant and Young Child Feeding Practices

  • PREVIEW
  • READ ARTICLE
  • OPEN PDF

ISSN

Biology and culture come together at the level of the diet. This article reviews infant and young child feeding (IYCF) practices from a cultural perspective, studying dietary patterns in infants and children between the ages of 6 and 24 months. Drawing on ethnographic research conducted in Mexico, sub-Saharan Africa and China, the authors demonstrate how viewing IYCF in cultural terms can expand our explanatory frameworks and improve
nutrition intervention designs.The “dyadic eating relationship” between mother and child is expressed in several ways, including the practice of maternal premastication of food, the influence of maternal food preferences on the child, and the sharing of food between mother and child. Studies of “infant and young child feeding culture”
can generate valuable new insights and suggest avenues for translating nutritional science into actions in the
households and communities where we work.
