Abstract: 
Diese Masterarbeit behandelt das Thema der Fehlernährung mit einem Fokus auf Vitamin A, stillenden Müttern und Kleinkindern und Übergewicht. Verschiedene Methoden um das Brustfütterverhalten, Vitamin A und Energieverbrauch zu messen werden beschrieben. Herkömmliche (ohne Verwendung von Isotopen) Techniken werden mit Nuklearen Methoden verglichen. Außerdem wird die Beteiligung, in dieser Thematik, verschiedener internationaler Organisationen erläutert.

This thesis sheds light on malnutrition, especially regarding vitamin A status, breastfeeding women and infants and overweight. Different techniques are described which assess breastfeeding behaviour and vitamin A and total body energy expenditure. In those, conventional field (non-isotopic) methods are compared to nuclear methods. Additionally, the involvement of international organizations is discussed.
Keywords: Nuclear techniques; conventional methods; breastfeeding; vitamin A; isotopic techniques; malnutrition
