introduction
INTRODUCTION
  • Optimal child growth is important for children reach their full cognitive and social potential
  • Under-nutrition in children is manifested as underweight, stunting and wasting.
  • In 2011, the WHO estimated that globally,

25% of under-five children are under-nourished

18% are under-weight while 28% are stunted. The majority of these children reside in Africa and Asia .

under nutrition and mdgs
UNDER-NUTRITION AND MDGs
  • MDG 1: Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger – some improvement
  • MDGs 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
  • In Guatemala and Zimbabwe, food supplementation during early childhood improved schooling in men and women
  • height-for-age: 1 Z score was associated with an 8% increase in income in Brazil and Guatemala as well as with an increase of 0·27 household assets in India
probiotics
PROBIOTICS
  • Probiotics are live micro-organisms which confer a health benefit on the host when they are consumed in adequate amounts.
  • The dietary intake of probiotics may lead to improved growth in children and therefore help in reducing the prevalence and magnitude of under-nutrition.

aim and objectives
AIM AND OBJECTIVES
  • Aim: To systematically review the available evidence on the effects of probiotics on the growth of children.
  • Objectives:
  • i) To determine the effect of probiotics on the growth of healthy young children
  • ii) To determine the effect of probiotics on the growth of undernourished children
methods
METHODS
  • Three electronic databases were searched using inclusion and exclusion criteria MEDLINE, EMBASE and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials
  • Reference lists were also searched.
  • Outcome measure was change in growth- weight, height/length
  • Analysis was by a narrative synthesis of results
results
RESULTS
  • Eleven studies were included in the review

- Seven healthy children studies

- four under-nourished children studies

  • The studies varied in type and quantity of probiotics, duration of interventions, characteristics of participants and units of outcome measurement.
  • Four studies found that probiotics lead to an increase in growth of children
results contd
RESULTS Contd
  • Consistent improvement in growth of children in low income settings
  • Availability and cost: Use of locally sourced, cheap probiotic substance
  • Acceptance
  • Adverse effects
conclusion and recommendations
CONCLUSION AND RECOMMENDATIONS
  • The dietary intake of probiotics seems to be effective in improving the growth of children in developing countries.
  • May contribute to the pace of achieving MDGs
  • However, there is a need for more quality research studies on the effects of probiotics on growth- different probiotics, age groups, settings, explore local sources
