    Article - En anglais

    The zinc nutrition of rural Malawian children (24 females, 33 males; age 62+-10 mo) consuming cereal-based diets was compared with that of rural Ghanaian children (43 females, 33 males; age 59+-10 mo) consuming cereals or starchy staples, using hair zinc concentrations, growth and body composition indices, and dietary intakes.

    Intakes of energy, protein, Ca, Zn, dietary fiber and phytate at two seasons of the year were estimated from 3-d weighed food records using analyzed and literature food composition values.
