To evaluate the effect of routine child growth monitoring, combined with health and nutrition promotion, on:

  • intermediate outcomes, including health service use, improved health, nutritional behaviour and knowledge;

  • mothers' views of the value of the process;

  • resource use by mothers and service providers.
