Protein-Energy Requirements of Developing Countries: Evaluation of New Data (UNU, 1981, 268 p.)
Use of corn-bean mixtures to satisfy protein and energy requirements of preschool children
Summary of the main results
To determine whether pre-school children can fulfil their protein
requirements with a diet based on corn and beans.
To determine which
proportions of corn-and-bean-protein mixtures are better, in the sense that they
lead to lower protein requirements and are the proportions spontaneously
selected by pre-school children.
To determine the energy density of
corn-bean diets necessary to fulfil both the protein and energy requirements of
pre-school children eating ad libitum. (Is bulk a limiting element in corn-bean
diets in preschool children?)
