Activity and Behavioral Development in Stunted and Nonstunted Children and Response to Nutritional Supplementation.
Meeks Gardner, Julie M.; And Others
Child Development, v66 n6 p1785-97 Dec 1995
Studied effects on nutritional supplementation, with or without psychosocial stimulation, on the development and growth of 129 stunted children compared with 32 nonstunted children. Found that after six months, initially low activity levels of stunted children matched those of nonstunted children, regardless of treatment. Supplementation improved growth and mental development, but did not appear to affect activity level. (HTH)
