Abstract
This study was first undertaken in 1952 in connexion with the work of Trowell, Davies and Dean (1954) on Kwashiorkor, a disease of children caused by lack of protein in the transitional diet after weaning. These authors concluded that no immediate solution to the problem was offered by supplements of animal protein, or by purchases of commodities like dried milk, because they could not be produced in sufficient quantity in the near future. They suggested that a survey of crops contributing to the normal home diet would be instructive.
