N2 - Objective: To test whether there are differences in diet diversity between childrenstill being partly breast-fed at 9 months and those completely weaned at the sameage.Design: Cross-sectional study.Setting: Cross-sectional study (SKOT cohort) in the area of Copenhagen, Denmark.Subjects: Healthy term infants (n 312) at 9 months of age (mean 9?1 (SD 0?3)months).Results: The infants partly breast-fed (n 168) at 9 months had significantly lowerbody weight (P,0?0001), were significantly shorter (P50?0022) and were introducedto complementary foods significantly later (P,0?0001) than completelyweaned infants (n 141) of similar age. Furthermore, they had lower intake ofenergy, both in absolute amount (P,0?0001) and per kilogram of body weight(P50?049). Significantly lower intakes of most energy-yielding nutrients, inabsolute amounts and as energy percentages, were seen for the partly breast-fedcompared with the completely weaned infants. These differences appear to becaused primarily by differences in the type and amount of milk consumed, as theenergy derived from sources other than milk was similar except for fatty spread andvegetables as a side dish. Only small differences were found for absolute intakesof foods between feeding groups, although fatty spread had significantly higherintake rates and consumption (P50?031) among partly breast-fed compared withcompletely weaned infants.Conclusions: At 9 months the infants partly breast-fed did not eat a less diversifieddiet compared with those completely weaned at the same age. Despite laterintroduction to complementary foods compared with the completely weaned, theirintake of foods was similar and no delay in their progression towards the familyfoods was noted.
