Since this time yesterday, did he/she receive any of the following?
Warning: these figures indicate the number of cases found in the data file. They cannot be interpreted as summary statistics of the population of interest.
The purpose of this question is to determine what other liquids or foods the child was given in addition to breastmilk. Prompt by asking each listed question in turn: Did [name] receive vitamin or mineral supplements or medicine? Did he/she receive plain water? and so on through the list. Use the local terms that were defined during your training. Make sure that the caretaker understands the questions, particularly what you mean by 'since this time yesterday'. (Specify to the mother: mid-morning, mid-afternoon, etc., depending on the time of the interview.) Circle the appropriate code for each answer: 1 = "yes", 2 = "no". If the caretaker does not know the answer, repeat the question using other local words for the fluid or food: if the answer is still not known, circle 9 for "doesn't know". If a mother mentions a liquid which does not fit into one of the categories listed, write the description in the space provided in 3F and circle 1.
