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