New research in India shows that children eat better when their mothers have more power, more education and are able to move about freely in their communities. Researchers found that women who joined a job skills training program felt more in control at home and in their families. And the children of these women ate more rice and dairy foods. A program in southern India is called Mahila Samakhya. It brings women together to form local support groups. Researchers at the University of Illinois questioned if and how these groups affected the women’s sense of themselves and their positions in the family. Kathy Baylis is an economist at the College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences at the University of Illinois. She led the study. Ms. Baylis says that before joining the peer groups, the women knew fewer than five other women who they were not related to. Ms. Baylis adds that many of them did not know the possibilities for women in work and in family life. Experts say 40 percent of Indian children under the age five suffer from underfeeding. But Ms. Baylis says involvement in the support groups led them to provide better foods for their children. Researchers visited the homes of those involved in the groups. They created a simple measuring process. They brought different sized food bowls and asked the mothers which size bowls they were using. Researchers confirmed that the children were eating better based on the size of bowl the mothers used. They found that girls especially started eating more.
