S "Determination of Micronutrient Contents in Foods of Children Aged 6 to 24 Months with Moderate Acute Malnutrition (MAM) in Mayahi Department of Niger" Published in International Journal of Trend in Scientific Research and Development (ijtsrd), ISSN: 2456-6470, Volume-6 | Issue-1, December 2021, pp.646-651, URL: https://www.ijtsrd.com/papers/ijtsrd47878.pdf

More than a third of children under five year are malnourished: they are stunted, wasted, or lack iodine, vitamin A or iron. These forms of malnutrition, often irreversible and potentially fatal, are deeply rooted in poverty and underdevelopment to the point of compromising the sustainable development of the populations concerned. In order to contribute to the fight against micronutrient deficiencies we decided to study the micronutrient composition of the various meals consumed by children with MAM from 6 to 24 months in the Maradi region, Mayahi department in the Niger. 20 differents types of meals were collected from households and analysed by Association of Official Analytical Chemists methods. The results of htis work indicate that the determination of minerals made it possible to understand that foods are generally low in micronutrients except sodium which is a very accessible mineral element. Large-scale fortification combined with the prevention and treatment of infectious diseases can dramatically decrease micronutrient losses and reduce micronutrient deficiencies among vulnerable groups including infants.
