Anak Selangor Anak Sihat (ASAS)
ASAS in an initiative aims to address the nutritional development of children, particularly those in the vulnerable B40 group, within the populous state of Selangor. It involves the introduction of a nutritional food basket program spanning ten months, with a focus on assessing its clinical effectiveness and cost-efficiency. This program holds potential benefits for the targeted population and policymakers, providing valuable insights for shaping public health policies in Selangor.
The nutritional status of children serves as a crucial indicator of overall population health, and addressing malnutrition is of paramount importance. Numerous studies have identified contributing factors to child malnutrition, including maternal diet and BMI, household income, food security, and complications arising from various diseases.
