    A study was conducted in two slum areas in a Bombay suburb covering a total population of 4879.

    One hundred and fifty-three mothers having children below two years were interviewed.

    Ninety six per cent infants below the age of 4 months received breast milk, though exclusive breastfeeding was practised only in 37% infants.

    Timely complementary feeding rate was only 0.48.

    Twenty three per cent of mothers used bottle for administration of supplementary food or water.

    Only 15.7% of mothers used commercial milk formula and 8.5% used commercial weaning food.
