Infant feeding practices: Perceptions of Native American mothers and health paraprofessionals
Health Education Journal, 05/31/2012
Horodynski MA et al. – Data provided examples of Native American Indian (NAI) mothers’ feeding practices, suggesting that development of an effective intervention to assist NAI mothers transition their infants to solid foods can help promote healthy infant growth during their first year of life. Health paraprofessionals need to incorporate nutrition messages that are culturally–congruent for NAI mothers. Inclusion of NAI family members may enhance successful changes in infant feeding practices.
