Type of Protein Consumption affecting Children Growth Patterns

Researchers had determined that choices of protein intake from solid foods has a significant impact on infant growth during the first year of life. Due to insufficient protein intakes, Children Growth hindering is common in low- income countries and is associated with an increased risk of child mortality, infectious disease morbidity, impaired neurocognitive development, and metabolic disease in later life.

Research on dietary protein adequacy in low- income countries indicates the vast majority of young children consume more protein than specified in published estimates of protein requirements, resulting in the common understanding that growth restriction is not due to protein deficiency. Protein requirements of infants and children are defined as the minimum intake that will allow nitrogen equilibrium during energy balance plus the amount needed for deposition of new tissues.
