Summary

This report summarizes proceedings and recommendations of a workshop on trends, needs, and issues in maternal and child nutrition services and presents 28 major recommendations and associated action strategies which address general areas, women's nutrition for optimal reproductive health, infant nutrition, child nutrition, adolescent nutrition, and nutrition for children with special health care needs. Sample recommendations include the following: aggressively support nutrition services as an essential component of emerging national health care plans; increase the number and improve the quality of personnel providing nutrition services; provide all pregnant and lactating women with access to nutrition services; promote breastfeeding among all women; assure the availability of infant nutrition services; develop a U.S. infant feeding code which positively states the responsibilities of formula and food manufacturing industries in promoting breastfeeding and appropriate infant feeding practices; ensure quality nutrition education programs for school-age children and adolescents; expand the research base in adolescent nutrition; expand access to nutrition services for children with special health care needs and their families; and establish a nutrition data system for children with special health care needs. A glossary of acronyms and a listing of organizations represented at the workshop are included. (DB)
