Abstract
The 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.
