Every third child under the age of five in the world is a victim of malnutrition. At the same time, the situation is even worse in India where 50 percent of the children are malnourished. Government and non-governmental organizations are working on many measures for this. There is a need to identify and implement evidence-based high-impact approaches.

Children are domestically bound for more than 2-3 months under the lockdown system. They are missing their friends and schools. They are in anxiety after watching so many deaths in their community. They have less physical movements and they miss their playgrounds. They have to change their life style without any notice and they are bound to do this actually.
Lead is most dangerous to children, especially those under six. According to CDC nearly one half of a million children living in the United States have levels of lead in their blood that exceed ten micrograms of lead per deciliter of blood, a level at which adverse health effects are known to occur. Lead poisoning can affect virtually every body system; it can damage a child’s central nervous system, kidneys, and reproductive system. Why lead is most dangerous to children? and how can we prevent it?
I would appreciate questionnaires with many validated translations

I use a craniometer daily to measure infants with plagiocephaly and/or brachycephaly. It is not easy as infants do not always cooperate, but I think it work well after some training (if using a headband with marks). This weekend I had inexperienced therapists (inexperienced in measuring with craniometer) measuring models of infant head ("home made"), it ought to be rather "easy" as this model heads do not move. However the result was not as good as expected, (I will do it again with better models of heads).
I would like to know about others experience with measuring with craniometer.
Most of the literature is about adults

I was wondering if you could help me to understand the score awarded by PEDro to my article on the "blind subjects" criteria. Here is the link to it: http://search.pedro.org.au/search-results/record-detail/37529
Were the infants of the study considered to be blind because the envelopes were opened right immediately before the training session, which was a brief and single one and therefore it unabled them to distinguish between the treatments applied to the other groups? This question is because most of the other articles in which infants' reaching was trained (training over weeks, not in a single session) did not awarded the "blind subjects" criteria. I really would like to understand how that criteria works for infants.
Thank you in advance.

A young colleague is preparing a ph.d. application on this theme. A proper review show that overweight in adults affect employment and career negatively (Robroek et al 2013, SJWEH). We want to study the effect of being overweight as child/adolescent on achievements and labor market participation in adulthood, independent of adult overweight - possibly mediated by psychosocial pathways as well as somatic health.
Psychological theories on causes for getting overweight and on consequenses of being overweight seem to be a field of limited clarity and consensus?
Input on good articles/reviews, relevant theories, useful data, ongoing projects and possible collaboration is very welcome.

I have 8 years time sires data on maternal and child mortality rate.
The only instrument I have located is the Feel Bad Scale by Lewis, C. E., Siegel, J. M., & Lewis, M., but this is from 1984. Cohen's instrument (Perceived Stress Scale) is not validated in children. There is an instrument developed by Snoeren, F. and Hoefnagles, C., researchers in the Netherlands. This scale is called the Child Perceived Stress Scale but I have not been able to find much information on this scale. A paper was published on it in 2013:
Snoeren, F, & Hoefnagels, C. (2013). Measuring Perceived Social Support and Perceived Stress Among Primary School Children in The Netherlands. Child Indicators Research, 1-14.
If anyone has any information on this instrument I would certainly appreciate it, thank you.

What I'm interested in is pulling together all potential influences, not just psychological but also architecture, health, social housing and the like.
Achievement can, in this sense, means either specifically (e.g. their homework) or generally (over time), and directly (e.g. concentration) or indirectly (e.g. time spent in hospital). Living conditions could be viewed in terms of healthy-environment (e.g. damp, cramped).
I have looked in the World Bank, UNICEF and even in the National Institute of Statistics of Spain, but all I get are numbers from some years, not a progression of years worth of data.

It is well known that babies cry just before sleep. Sometimes the cries have specific origins that cause pain or discomfort. But as everyone knows, even when all those factors have been eliminated every baby still appears to cry in an attempt to fight sleep itself.
This question is NOT asking for a solution. This is a scientific question. I am asking why? Why do they fight sleep? Is there a survival advantage? Is there a physiological explanation? What research has been carried out into it to determine the reason for the "sleep fight"?
Could it be that a good cry before sleep actually has a physiological payoff that confers a survival advantage? Does it "prepare" the baby's breathing pathways before sleep, for example?
Are there some meta-analyses or epidemiological factors we can do to check this hypothesis? Are those babies that die of SIDS those that do not cry as much before sleep? Is there any epidemiological data to test such ideas?
I want to make some emperical studies on child and issues such as child mortality, immunization etc using demographic and health survey data. I can analyses dat a as I'm student of statistics.

i want to conduct a study on the use of intravenous iron therapy for the treatment of iron deficiency anemia in otherwise healthy children. Iron deficiency anemia is highly prevalent in the area where I am working. most of the people are from far long areas and the access to health facilities is very very limited. I want to give them three doses of IV iron and see the response. as compliance to 2-3 months oral treatment is a big issue. I have already started giving IV iron to few children and the response is amazing. What are your suggestions. Is this a worth doing study and worth publishing data?

For example, we are studying child health parameters such as BMI and the effect of factors like environmental, social or genetic. If we have 6-8 different factors affecting BMI, than how we can analyze the single factor effect? Many researchers used age-adjusted, sex-adjusted etc, but how we can adjust many factors together to see the effect of single factor which is the aim of our study? Is there any simple method? Can it be done through SPSS?
The phenomenon of inbreeding increases the level of homozygotes for autosomal recessive genetic disorders and generally leads to a decreased fitness of a population known as inbreeding depression.
Inbreeding has been associated with increased risk of adverse prenatal outcomes including stillbirths, low birth weight, preterm delivery, abortion, infant and child mortality, congenital birth defects, cognitive impairments, malformations and many other complex disorders.
"Violent scenes that children are most likely to model their behavior after are ones in which they identify with the perpetrator of the violence, the perpetrator is rewarded for the violence and in which children perceive the scene as telling about life like it really is," Thus, a violent act by someone like Dirty Harry that results in a criminal being eliminated and brings glory to Harry is of more concern than a bloodier murder by a despicable criminal who is brought to justice.
