Early child growth: how do nutrition and infection interact? (Dewey, K., 2011. Maternal & Child Nutrition)
This study reviews how the interaction between nutrition and infection affects child growth in low‐income populations.
The challenge of meeting nutrient needs of infants and young children during the period of complementary feeding: an evolutionary perspective (Dewey, K., 2013. The Journal of Nutrition)
This paper provides an evolutionary perspective on why modern complementary food diets are often inadequate, asserting that inadequate diets and nutritional deficiencies have likely been a part of the human condition since the agricultural revolution.
Reviews available evidence on whether infection diminishes the positive impact of nutrition interventions on child growth and whether improved nutrition limits the negative impact of infections on child growth.
Reviews evidence of the effect of undernutrition from conception through the first two years of life on brain development and on the short-term and long-term development of cognitive, motor, and socio-emotional skills.
