Abstract
In this study, six regression equations are used to determine the effects of credit and other factors on the nutritional status of boys and girls in Malawi. No significant effects of access to credit on child nutritional status were found. Same-sex parental preference for child nutrition was found. Infrastructural variables are determined to have the most significant influence in reducing child malnutrition levels. Access to credit is a new measure and its limitations are brought out in the study.
