In babies, the neonatal period commences at birth and ends 28 completed days after birth whereas low birth weight is defined as a weight of less than 2500g, irrespective of gestational age. Both neonatal mortality and low birth weight are used as indicators of pregnancy care, as well as malnutrition in the population. In South Asia, countries with a high neonatal mortality rate also have a tendency of having infants with low birth weight.

新生兒是指剛出生後的28天。而低出生體重是重量少於2500克。新生兒死亡率和低出生體重這兩個指標反映在孕婦懷孕期護理、以及人口營養不良情況等。地圖顯示南亞地區高新生兒死亡率國家同時有低出生體重情況。

Nutrition 營養

  • An adequate and well balanced diet is the minimum requirement for supporting healthy growth of children. This is particularly important for children in the early months and years of their lives. Poor nutrition intake can lead to susceptibility to diseases and impaired development. In very young babies, their nutritional intake hinges on that of their mothers both before and after their birth.
