dc.description.abstract Types, preparation, ingredient proportions, JYCF practices and Nutrient composilions of commonly used traditional weaning Joods in three kebeles (Dakisho Subo, Vba Phizgo and Falka Tsaw'lye) were studied. Data were collected using structured questionnaire ji'om mothers with children older than 6 months but younger than 24 months and evaluated Jor its nutrient components using standard procedures. Gruels prepared Jrom cereal flour were the first Joods introduced to children in Ihe kebeles and analysis results showed that, Crude protein was ranged ji-om 145 - 4. 27g1100 g with the crude Jat ranged ji-om 1.49 - 3.69g1100 g.
