[The dietetic role of mineral salts and vitamins in a group of Valencia schoolchildren].

Abstract

A low-energy diet can have an insufficient content of minerals and vitamins to meet nutritional requirements. We herein report on study of the contribution of the diet to mineral and vitamin intake in a Valencia pre-school children population. The results are compared with recommended daily intakes of energy, protein, lipid, carbohydrates, Ca, Fe, I, Zn, Mg and vitamins B1, B2, Niacin, Folic acid, B12, C, A and D. Our results show that the usual diet provides intakes below the recommended values in the case of Zn, Fe, Folates and vitamin D. Nevertheless, children studied do not show deficiency signs.
