Abstract

Rice forms the staple food of nearly half the world's population. Diet and nutrition surveys carried out in several rice-eating regions have shown that the diets consumed by weaned infants and young children of the low income groups of the population are deficient in proteins and certain vitamins and minerals and do not promote optimum growth in children.
