Feeding Problems Encountered by Mothers of Toddlers

S. Rajeswari

The identification of feeding problems in infancy and early childhood is no simple task because feeding problems are complex and lack of universally accepted definitions and classification systems. Descriptive research design was used to assess the feeding problems encountered by the mothers of toddlers. 50 toddlers were selected by non-probability convenience sampling technique and nutritional status was assessed by anthropometric assessment. By using rating scale, the problems were encountered from mothers of toddler and analysis was done. Results Among 50 children, 4 (8 %) had encountered mild feeding problems, 14 (28) had encountered as moderate feeding problems, 32 (64) had encountered as severe feeding problems, none had no feeding problems encountered. The early recognition of feeding problems is important because it may prevent simple feeding problems from becoming pervasive or resistant to treatment. Nutritional counselling was given to mothers of toddler.
