The purpose of this article is to bring together several lines of scientific research which, in different ways, demonstrate that a synergistic relationship exists between the psycho-social status of a child and his or her nutritional and health status. This means that improving the psycho-social condition of children by creating a sound emotional climate and through early stimulation will have effects on survival, growth and health — not simply the reverse. The article begins with several conceptual considerations, moves on to a synthesis of research results, and closes with general implications for policy and programming.
