Feeding Threat

Infant cereals sold in developing countries are inconsistent in their quality.

The quality issues could be damaging child growth, according to a study led by Friedman School Professor William Masters, who called for certification systems.

Only 15 percent of the 108 products he tested met international benchmarks for fat content, and less than 25 percent met standards for iron and zinc. With levels like that, the average child would develop a nutritional deficiency before age 1.
