Abstract

After weaning, infants receive, in addition to milk, small quantities of cereals either in the cooked form or in the form ofa weaning food. In western countries, in addition to a milk-cereal diet, weaned children also receive supplements of strained foods based on fruits and vegetables (1). The exact role played by these strained foods in the nutrition of weaned infants is not known. The strained foods especially based on fruits are rich sources of ascorbic acid, which is present only in small quantities either in milk or cereals. Chaney (2) reported that a daily ration of orange given with the normal diets resulted in an improvement in the increase in weight of under-nourished children. Hunscher et at. (3) observed that a daily ingestion of 100 g. of fruit resulted in an increase in the retention of calcium and phosphorus in children. Therefore, strained foods, based on fruit, exert a beneficial efiect in the nutrition of children. No information is available in the literature on the supplementary value of strained mango fruit pulp to milkcereal diets. The present paper deals with studies on the effect of supplementing milk-cereal diet with strained food containing mango pulp on the growth and composition of liver and body of albino rats.
