Dietary patterns and metabolic dysfunction-associated fatty liver disease in China's multi-ethnic regions
CONCLUSION: Our study implied the unfavourable effects of "Yunnan-Guizhou Plateau dietary pattern" on MAFLD and provided evidence that reducing the intake of oil and sodium may be optimal for MAFLD control in the multi-ethnic region in western China.PMID:38093350 | PMC:PMC10717100 | DOI:10.1186/s41043-023-00485-0 (Source: Journal of Health, Population, and Nutrition)

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 (Source: Journal of Health, Population, and Nutrition)

Establishing performance standards for child development: learnings from the ECDI2030
CONCLUSIONS: This paper demonstrated how the standard setting methodology, typically applied to measures in the health and education fields, could be applied to a measure of child development. By creating robust criterion-referenced standards, we have been able to ensure that the cut-scores related to age for the ECDI2030 are based on performance standards set by global experts in the ECD field for defining on and off track development.PMID:38087377 | PMC:PMC10717755 | DOI:10.1186/s41043-023-00483-2 (Source: Journal of Health, Population, and Nutrition)

Comparison of pregnancy and neonatal outcomes in a retrospective full pregnancy history survey versus population-based prospective records: a validation study in rural Sarlahi District, Nepal
CONCLUSIONS: Stillbirth and neonatal deaths were underestimated overall by the FPH, potentially underestimating the burden of mortality in this population. There is a need to develop tools to reduce or adjust for biases and errors in retrospective surveys to improve reporting of pregnancy and mortality outcomes.PMID:38066542 | PMC:PMC10709973 | DOI:10.1186/s41043-023-00472-5 (Source: Journal of Health, Population, and Nutrition)

Assessing the effect of mHealth on child feeding practice in African countries: systematic and meta-analysis
CONCLUSION: This systematic review and meta-analysis showed that the application of mHealth improved child-feeding practices in Africa. Although the finding is compelling, the authors recommend high-quality studies and mHealth interventions that consider sample size, design, regional differences, and environmental constraints to enhance policy decisions. The place of residence, access, low socioeconomic development, poor socio-demographic characteristics, low women empowerment, and low women's education might cause high heterogeneity in the included regions and need consideration during interventions.REGISTRATION NUMBER: P...
