The rapid development of our knowledge regarding the importance of adequate nutrition for maintaining good health has led in recent years to an increasing realisation of the relation of the food supply of a country to the well-being of the people. The average Indian diet is inadequate both quantitatively and qualitatively in protein and necessitates the production of adequate amounts of proteinrich and protective foods such as milk, meat, fish and eggs to meet the requirements of the vulnerable sections of the population1? Protein malnutrition is the major nutritional problem among weaned infants and young children, though diseases due to deficiencies of certain vitamins and iron may also be associated with this condition. Much of the work carried out during recent years in India as well as in several other countries relates to the utilization of all available proteinrich foods for supplementing the diets of childrena. The present paper reviews the recent developments on the subject and indicates how the available knowledge could best be used to overcome protein shortage in human diets.
