Helping women improve nutrition in the developing world : beating the zero sum game by Judith S McGuire( )

16 editions published between 1990 and 1992 in English and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this paper is to link together in a new and creative way the exisitng knowledge about women's market work, reproductive roles, and household production in order to highlight opportunities for helping women improve nutrition. The analysis is based on the hypothesis that women are now engaged in a "zero sum game." This means that in order to take advantage of new technology, market opportunities or even social services to improve nutrition, requires an initial investment of women's time, energy, or income, which may not be available, ironically, without sacrificing their own nutrition or that of their families. Consequently, women's time constraints may partially explain poor participation rates in many development projects. By reviewing the literature (including project documents) in nutrition, agriculture, child development, women in development, health, and economics, the authors point out the linkages and competition among women's life roles. Their conclusions highlight the need to give women access to the necessary productive, intellectual and nutritional resources to solve their own problems. The authors offer a number of suggestions for development planners about using an analysis of women's roles to address nutrition problems in developing countries

Abstract: Nutrition is a major influence on child health and development. Diet habits begun early influence health and disease in adult life. U.S. government legislation and programs to improve the nutritional and health status of mothers and children are reviewed; these policies affect food supply and food demand. Following an overview of the nutrient needs of infants, preschool and school-age children, and women of child-bearing age, 3 major USDA Food and Nutrition Service projects are discussed with respect to their implications for maternal and child health. These are the WIC program, the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs, and the Food Stamp Program. DHHS services which cooperate with state and local public health agencies in offering nutritional care to mothers and children are described; programs funded through Social Security Act Title V grants, projects in medically underserved areas, EPSDT programs, Head Start, and Indian health services programs are also discussed.
