This study was conducted to find out mothers’ perception of factors associated with wheezing and its effect on the nutritional status of children with recurrent wheezing. ‘Cold food’ which includes all refrigerated food, curd and certain types of green leafy vegetables were perceived to be associated with wheezing by 70% of mothers. These items were not included in the diet of children with wheezing. However there was no significant difference in the nutritional intake or nutritional status of children with and without wheezing perhaps due to infrequent inclusion of the same even in the normal children’s diet.
