ARCH assessed and tracked unhealthy commercial food and beverage (UCFB) consumption of children living in rural/peri-urban Cambodia during the complementary feeding period, identified UCFB consumption patterns of these children, and explored the association between UCFB consumption and growth. We found a high frequency of UCFB consumption by children under 2 years of age in rural/peri-urban Kandal province, Cambodia. This high UCFB consumption began during older infancy and tracked into early childhood.
