Hj. Katang, Khamri (2011) Factors influencing the poor nutrition intake amongst preschool children: a case study in Spaoh district, Betong division, sarawak / Khamri Hj. Katang. [Research Reports] (Unpublished)

Abstract

Malnutrition is rampant amongst the pre-school children throughout the country especially in the rural population. As seen from the Sarawak Medical and Health Report from 2007 to 2009, more than 60% of the total districts in the state recorded SMC and MMC above (11.6%) the national standard of 5% IR (Incidence Rate). This warrant a serious concern and effort should be taken to investigate the possible factors that contribute to this vicious situation.
The community health survey report at Pusat Kesihatan Spaoh (PKS) for 2007 to 2009 recorded the consistent problem of moderately malnourished (MMC) and severely malnourished children (SMC) in its operational area. The status of socio-economy has the bearing on the influence of the incidence of malnutrition and the relationship to the dietary pattern and nutrition intake particularly amongst younger children (4 to 6 years old)
