SARDA PRADA, Adriana; LIMONTA PEREZ, Bárbara  and  SARDA PRADA, Zulema. Modification to knowledge on nourishing diet of infant mothers. MEDISAN [online]. 2011, vol.15, n.9, pp.1-9. ISSN 1029-3019.

An educational intervention on aspects related to nourishment addressed to 25 infant mothers belonging to a doctor's office at "30 de noviembre" University Polyclinic in Santiago de Cuba was carried out from June, 2008 to October, 2009, in which case a class program was performed during 3 months. Systematic encounters guaranteed the positive modification to knowledge of most mothers about the appropriate selection of their diet components to feed and nourish their neonates through breastfeeding. It was recommended to perform a long-term research to assess the impact of that training for the growth and development of their children.

Keywords : mother; infant; nourishment; maternal diet; breastfeeding; intervention study; primary health care.
