Date of Defense 1989-02-05 Availability restricted AbstractThe infant feeding practices and associated environment of 49
infants (6-23 months) of migrant farm laborers in Northern Colorado
were investigated during the summer of 1987. Information was
collected on 1) breastfeeding practices, 2) introduction of foods
and liquids, 3) nutrition and health practices and inadequacies, 4)
home living environment, 5) health history, and 6) demographics.
Data on the sources of food and nutrition information was collected
regarding the 1) utilization of community food and nutrition programs
and 2) input of relatives.
A review of data results indicates that a number of nutrition
education needs exist among migrant farm laborers concerning the
feeding of their infants. Recommendations are made to help meet the
nutrition education needs of migrant parents in Northern Colorado.
