Author(s): Dr. Sarojini Jamadagni and Dr. Sunita Madaan
The objective of this study is to assess the significant difference of imparting nutrition education to mothers on nutritional status of infants. Multistage sampling technique was used for the selection of the sample. Five urban slums of Kurukshetra District of Haryana were selected on random basis. Total 286 mothers of infants (0-24 months) were selected purposively on random basis. Data was collected using a pretested interview schedule and observation checklist. The length/height was taken by infant meter for small infants and ordinary tape for infants above 12 months (before imparting NE and after imparting NE). Nutritional Education Intervention Programme (Six lesson plans) was used to educate mother over the period of eight months. Percentage, Arithmetic mean, standard deviation, paired t-test were used. After statistical analysis there was a significant difference between length/height of male and female infants and it was improved after imparting NE when compared with WHO standards.
