HERNANDEZ OCHOA, Jaqueline  y  SELVA SUAREZ, Lisett. Nutrition and health in children under 1 year old "Manuel Díaz Legrá" Polyclinic" january 2004 _ august 2005. Rev haban cienc méd [online]. 2012, vol.11, n.3, pp.396-403. ISSN 1729-519X.

Objectives: to evaluate the behavior of the breastfeeding and complementary diet in the "Manuel Diaz Legrá" Polyclinic in the Municipality of Holguin, as well as their relation with the nutritional state and the morbidity by respiratory infections and acute diarrheic diseases. Patients and Methods: a case study was carried out in 67 children under 1 year old, born between January-August 2004. A survey was applied to the mothers of infants in each consultation. Besides the medical histories and the measurement of the weight at 1 year old were used. Results: it was verified that in the most of infants the breastfeeding, complementary diet and nutritional condition were appropriate. In the group with inappropriate breastfeeding the percentage of low-weight infants was higher in relation to those who were breastfeed adequately and they had a higher frequency of respiratory infections and acute diarrheic diseases. Conclusions: the maternal nursing and the appropriate weaning influenced positively in the nutritional state of the infants, as well as in the protection before different illnesses.

Palabras clave : nutrition; breastfeeding; acute respiratory infection; acute diarrheic disease.
