Infant and young child feeding (IYCF) data

UNICEF’s expanded database on Infant and Young Child Feeding (IYCF) provides country-level trends of 7 core and 3 optional IYCF indicators. All publicly available MICS and DHS (phase 5-7) have been reanalyzed to produce standardized estimates across years and surveys programs. Along with national estimates, the databases contain estimates by various disaggregations such as place of residence, geographic location, age and sex of the child etc. With this release are new estimates for minimum dietary diversity (MDD) and minimum acceptable diet (MAD) following the change in definition of these indicators in June 2017.
