Other Micronutrients

Table 4 and Table 5 outline some of the micronu-trient deficiency problems that can arise in childhood. Most of these conditions are rare in their overt form in westernized countries because of the variety of children's diets. There remain questions as to whether levels of micronutrient nutrition that do not lead to clinical deficiency syndromes may nevertheless have effects on immunity, growth, and development in children. This seems possible for iron deficiency and psychoneurological functioning and is proven for folic acid and embryological development. For other micronutrients the evidence is less strong. Similarly, there is currently no good evidence that raising children's micronutrient intakes above recommended levels incurs any particular benefit to health or intellectual development.
