Children receiving supplementary food from the government such as eggs, milk and juice also had higher levels of vitamin C, hemoglobin, hematocrit (red blood cell percentage) and red blood cell volume in 1983 than in 1977, while children not in that particular program were higher only in hemoglobin and vitamins A and C.
