Abstract

Zinc deficiency impairing lean body mass and weight gain was documented. However, the effect of zinc seen over the first three months vanished during the last nine months when the food programme was in operation. Zinc deficiency may have persisted, but another nutrient may have become growth limiting during the last nine months.
