Published on 23 October 2014

Children in Cambodia score higher on cognitive tests and are less prone to fever and diarrhea after eating fortified rice regularly, according to a recent study. The study examined 10,000 children from 20 different primary schools in Kampong Speu province over a six-month period.  The children were randomly assigned to one of three groups that received either one of two types of fortified rice or regular unfortified rice.
