Jan 6, 2017

Food News International reported on a study where IFPRI provided funding to Tufts University Researchers who found that premixed infant cereals  - otherwise known as complementary foods – are inconsistent in meeting nutritional standards, with some providing the right ingredients to stave off malnutrition and stunting and others falling short. The study included locally produced complementary foods from 21 African and Asian countries as well as Haiti. Even more troubling, many of the products failed to match the nutritional content on their packaging labels.
