Effect of Timing of Micronutrient Powder Consumption on Iron Absorption in Infants

A new trial has been designed to examine how the timing of micronutrient powder (MNP) interventions can impact iron absorption and consequently iron and anemia status in infants. The studies will focus on the differences between morning and afternoon absorption, as well as consecutive versus alternate-day absorption. Researchers hope that the study outcomes will help implementers effectively time the delivery of MNP.
