Eating millets can boost growth in children: ICRISAT study

An international study on millets found that millets are "smart foods" that can boost growth in children and adolescents by 26-39% when they replace rice in standard meals. The results of the ICRISAT-led international study suggest that millets can significantly contribute to overcoming malnutrition. The study published in the journal 'Nutrients' was undertaken by seven organizations in four countries and was led by Dr. S Anitha, senior scientist (nutrition) at the International Crops Research Institute of the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT).
