Abstract

The sources of data upon the amino acid requirements of infants and children are very limited. The major work is that of Holt and Snyderman and their associates and their estimates have been published in many places. When data are limited there is also a limit to what one can say about them. However, one of the major problems is that people are likely to take estimates of requirements too seriously without adequate consideration of the limitations of the data.
