Developing countries are the most affected by malnutrition despite the diversity of agricultural products. The consequences of this malnutrition are the damage of mothers’ health and children.

It is more severe with children. In developing areas like sub-Saharan Africa, protein-energy malnutrition and micronutrient deficiencies are a real public health problem. They are the cause of many diseases responsible for frequent morbidity and infant mortality. Traditional infant feeding practices are generally designed without considering the specific nutritional needs of children aged 6 to 59 months. The majority of mothers in these developing countries prepare porridge made of cereals or tubers without fat and protein intake to make complementary foods.

This special issue aims at contributing to improvement of the nutritional quality of traditional diets submitted to children in developing countries.

Aims and Scope:
Inventory of some traditional food supplements;
Compare the nutritional qualities of traditional and industrial complementary foods;
Evaluate the potential effects on young children;
Suggest some possible improvements for the nutritional quality.
