BALDISSERA, Rosane; ISSLER, Roberto Mário Silveira  e  GIUGLIANI, Elsa Regina Justo. Effectiveness of the National Strategy for Healthy Complementary Feeding to improve complemantary feeding of infants in a municipality in Southern Brazil. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 2016, vol.32, n.9, e00101315.  Epub 19-Set-2016. ISSN 1678-4464.  https://doi.org/10.1590/0102-311X00101315.

The aim of this study was to assess the effectiveness of the National Strategy for Healthy Complementary Feeding (ENPACS) in improving complementary feeding in the first year of life in a Brazilian municipality (county). This was an impact evaluation study that enrolled 340 infants from 6 to 12 months of age, followed at primary healthcare units. The target outcomes were prevalence rates for the consumption of vegetables, legumes, fruits, and unhealthy foods, and the prevalence of foods with adequate consistency for age. Poisson regression showed that the strategy was associated with reductions of 32% in the consumption of sodas and/or industrialized juices, 35% of industrialized foods, and 5% of unhealthy foods. There was no increase in the consumption of fruits, legumes, vegetables, or foods with adequate consistency for age. In conclusion, the strategy's positive effect was partial, but it has the potential to help improve infant nutrition, based on its effectiveness in reducing the consumption of unhealthy foods.
