  1. Reported are mean Z-scores with 95% confidence intervals. Z-scores for weight-for-age (WAZ), length-for-age (LAZ), weight-for-length (WLZ), mid-upper-arm-circumference-for-age (MUAZ), weight velocity and length velocity are scored according to WHO Child Growth Standards (WHO [2006], WHO [2007], WHO [2009]). Age is given in months.
