Abstract:
Session presented on Sunday, July 26, 2015: Abstract Purpose: To examine the relationships among family income; Women, Infant, and Children (WIC) participation; and acculturation with infant feeding practices. Methods: A secondary data analysis was conducted from an original cross sectional study data set. Using convenience sampling, data were collected from a sample of n = 116 subjects drawn from three study locations in South Texas. Multiple linear regression analysis was used to analyze the data. ' Findings: We found that mother's WIC participation was inversely associated with infant feeding practices. Family income and acculturation did not show any significant relationship with infant feeding practices. ' Conclusion: Our findings indicate that mother's participation in WIC programs is likely to influence infant feeding practices. We recommend that WIC programs be tailored to enhance infant nutrition to curtail child obesity.
