Results: Thirty research articles were reviewed and it was found that socio-cultural values have significant impacts on children’s health. Maternal activities, bone modeling, child feeding practices, nutrition weaning and rearing caring practices are highly influenced by the cultural practices that cause high morbidity and mortality in children.
