This document presents new and updated indicators to assess infant and young child feeding practices at household level.
It is a follow-up to the 1991 document 'Indicators for assessing breastfeeding practices'. New indicators for assessing feeding practices in children 6-23 months have been included.
Indicators can be assessed through large-scale population-based surveys, including the Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) and the Multiple Cluster Indicator Survey (MICS). Part I is also available in French and Spanish and Part II is also available in French.
