VASQUEZ-GARIBAY, Edgar M.; ALVAREZ-TREVINO, Lucía; ROMERO-VELARDE, Enrique  y  LARROSA-HARO, Alfredo. Importance of nutrition transition in maternal and child population: Part I. Experiences in Mexico. Bol. Med. Hosp. Infant. Mex. [online]. 2009, vol.66, n.2, pp.109-123. ISSN 1665-1146.

The nutrition transition in Mexican children is better understood through the malnutrition syndrome in which there is an interaction of specific nutritional deficiencies (v. gr. iron, zinc, vitamin A and folic acid deficiencies), protein-energy malnutrition, overweight, obesity, and intake of potentially harmful diets (transfatty acids, hormones, insecticides, fertilizers, conservatives, etc.). Likewise, a group of rapidly increasing pathologies is present mainly in adolescents: clinical eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia and non-specific eating disorders. These pathologic entities may coexist, or else, an individual affected by a nutritional pathology (chronic malnutrition) may be affected by other pathologies in later stages of his/her life (obesity, eating disorders, nutritional deficiencies, etc.). In this context, the dyad mother-child is very important from the nutrition transition point of view because it is related to most comorbidities or consequences that will accompany the affected individual for the rest of his/her life. The nutrition transition is present in all states of Mexico; therefore, the purpose of this assay is to understand better this phenomenon by means of some national data and other data obtained from different studies performed in the state of Jalisco, Mexico.
