The at the time of birth, therefore
The main outcome would be changes in prevalence of stunting in children less than 5 years of age after the implementation of these nutritional interventions. Other outcome measure would be-• Height for age• Low birth weight-as birth weight can act as substitute for small size at the time of birth, therefore if there is small size of infant at birth that could be indicator of inadequate nutrition of fetus.• Weight for age• Weight for heightThen these measures could be compared to see if there is increase in height during the intervention, changes in indicators are also seen such as height for age as according to WHO child growth standards a child who is below 2 standard deviations of WHO child growth standard median is recognized as stunted along with which he/she is considered to be short for his/her age and if child is below minus 3(-3) standard deviations is considered to be severely stunted.
(“WHO | The WHO Child Growth Standards,” n.d.)If child is falling below two standard deviations of WHO child growth standard median for weight for height is viewed to be thinner for his/her age.Also for weight for age if the child is falling below 2 standard deviation of WHO child growth standard then he/she is regarded as underweight and if the child is below 3 standard deviations then he/she is extremely underweight .
After the intervention changes are noticed which may occur during the intervention in height and weight and the changes could be an increase in weight and increase in height as well. If the child weighs less than 2500 grams at the time of birth then he/she is defined as having low birth weight(Goudet et al., 2015)
