Post a reply: Effects of sub optimal complementary feeding practices on anaemia of children 6 - 24 months old

Hi. I am currently working on my dissertation in the effects of sub optimal complementary feeding practices on anaemia of children 6 - 24 months old.The following have been challenging for me and would appreciate some assistance;
1. A systematic random sampling technique will be used to identify the children. Anaemia is quiet rampant in this area and its likely that I would be studying every child I come across. I am therefore at cross roads as to whether this could affect the outcome of the study or not as i would also like to avoid any bias in the study.
2. Is there a less invasive but effective and reliable way to assess HB status of children. Methods review so far include finger pricking, palor etc. These methods lie on both sides of the extreme form me. (too invasive to less reliability). I therefore seek advise as to other methods that are less invasive and reliable at the same time. Thanks
