Abstract

SCHILLING, Patricia Rondó. Supplementary feeding programs: a critical analysis. Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 1990, vol.24, n.5, pp. 412-419. ISSN 0034-8910.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-89101990000500010.

A critical analysis of the Supplementary Feeding Programs which have been undertaken around the world is presented. Although only a few programs have been rigorously evaluated it seems that in relation to their main objectives, most of them have not proved to be successful. Some suggestions for improvement are put forward and the particular case of the Brazilian programs is assessed in detail.

Keywords : Supplementary feeding; Program evaluation.
