Resources for care, represented by maternal height, well-nourishment, mental well-being, decision-making, support in chores and perceived social support, were analyzed against Alive & Thrive baseline data from household surveys in Bangladesh and Viet Nam and found to be associated with child outcomes. This study’s implications suggest that interventions to improve maternal resources could foster child growth and development.
