This report reveals the results of formative research conducted to fill gaps in understanding of caregivers’ infant and young child feeding practices, following on the results of the 2007 Zambia Demographic and Health Survey. In particular, the study explores factors that influence a mother’s ability to exclusively breastfeed for the first six months of an infant’s life and factors that influence appropriate complementary feeding for children 6–23 months of age.
