Maternal-child consumption of ultra-processed foods and sugar-sweetened beverages in informal settlements in Mumbai, India

CONCLUSION: Our findings demonstrate social factors that may promote UPF/SSB consumption. The nutritional dangers of sugary drinks and non-nutritious snacks for mothers and young children should be addressed across maternal-child health, education, and social service programs. Early childhood nutrition interventions should involve the entire family and community and emphasize the need to limit children's consumption of unhealthy foods and beverages from an early age.PMID:38093384 | PMC:PMC10720234 | DOI:10.1186/s41043-023-00486-z
