The present study was carried out in Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso) with the aim of determining if the duration of the habituation period (1, 5 or 10 days) to low and high energy density gruels affected the amounts consumed or the energy intakes from gruels consumed by 6-9-month-old infants. Thirty infants were chosen randomly among the eligible children in the study area and randomly assigned to two groups (S1 and S2). Each infant was given successively for 10 consecutive days two experimental… CONTINUE READING

Daily frequencies of breastfeeding ( approximately 5.6 ) , water drinking ( approximately 3.7 ) and meals with foods other than experimental gruels were relatively high and did not vary with the duration of the habituation period or the type of gruels .
