Growth and body composition of periurban Guatemalan children in relation to zinc status: a longitudinal zinc intervention trial.
TLDR
Children responded to the zinc supplement with changes in indexes of body composition rather than growth, and was the only laboratory variable that explained some of the variance in final Z scores of midarm-muscle area and MAC.

Studies on the bioavailability of zinc in humans: effects of heme and nonheme iron on the absorption of zinc.
TLDR
The possibility that intrinsic iron in formulas for feeding infants and in vitamin-mineral supplement might inhibit the absorption of zinc justifies concern about the Fe/Zn ratio in the formulation of these products.
Interpretation of serum ferritin concentrations as indicators of total-body iron stores in survey populations: the role of biomarkers for the acute phase response.
TLDR
Analysis of relations of APP biomarkers to iron-status biomarkers in infants and school-age children shows that a low prevalence of inflammation has little influence on the distribution of ferritin, and 2 common indicators of inflammation do not perform equally well in identifying persons who may have elevations in ferritIn due to inflammation.
The underprivileged, developing country child: environmental contamination and growth failure revisited.
TLDR
It is suggested that a situation similar to the phenomenon of impaired growth of poultry and livestock reared under unsanitary conditions occurs in children from underprivileged countries.
Influence of sex, seasonality, ethnicity, and geographic location on the components of total energy expenditure in young children: implications for energy requirements.
TLDR
Season and location influenced TEE in children through their effects on AEE, and body weight may be the best predictor of TEE, while maximal oxygen consumption was the strongest marker of AEE.
Growth and body composition of periurban Guatemalan children in relation to zinc status: a cross-sectional study.
TLDR
Zinc status explained some of the variance in growth, WA, and WH Z scores, body composition, and taste acuity, and suboptimal zinc status arose partly from diets low in readily available zinc.
