Complementary foods consumed by 6-12-month-old rural infants in South Africa are inadequate in micronutrients

Complementary foods consumed by 6-12-month-old rural infants in South Africa are inadequate in micronutrients

Public Health Nutrition 8(4): 373-381

Objective: To determine the nutrient composition of complementary foods consumed by 6-12-month-old South African infants. Design: Nutrient intake was determined for infants who were recruited to participate in a randomized controlled trial using a single 24-hour dietary recall. Setting/subjects: Infants aged 6-12 months (n=475) residing in The Valley of a Thousand Hills, a rural area in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. Results: Energy and protein intakes from complementary foods were adequate.
