Combined Iron and Folic Acid Supplementation with or without Zinc Reduces Time to Walking Unassisted among Zanzibari Infants 5- to 11-mo old
Journal of Nutrition
Iron and zinc deficiencies have been associated with delayed motor development in nutritionally at-risk children, albeit inconsistently. In this community-based, randomized double-blind trial, iron1folic acid (FeFA) (12.5 mg Fe 1 50 mg folic acid), zinc (Zn) (10 mg), and iron1folic acid1zinc (FeFA1Zn) supplements or a placebo were given daily for 1 y to nutritionally at-risk children in Pemba, Zanzibar. The effects of these treatments on attaining unassisted walking were evaluated usingdoi:10.1093/jn/136.9.2427 pmid:16920865 fatcat:jqato5x7r5gtraywmp62cwn4g4
