Zinc and copper in infant diets.


The diets of 59 healthy Utah infants were examined for nutritional adequacy. The analysis included zinc and copper intake calculated from new assays of zinc and copper in commercial baby foods and table foods obtained at local retail outlets. Group averages showed adequate dietary intake, with copper the limiting nutrient. Zinc-to-copper ratios were only slightly higher than suggested.
