Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: This editorial was written to summarize 3 large clinical trials, one among pregnant women in Malawi, another in pregnant women in Ghana and the third in children in Cambodia. The Ghana study showed a benefit from food supplements, while the studies in Malawi and Cambodia found little benefit from these food supplements. The reason that different effects were seen in different populations is related to differences in habitual diets and gut health of these populations.
