Table 2 Time points between which there was a significant difference in nutrient intake between food allergic milk-free and matched control infants and nature of the difference observed

From: Nutritional adequacy of a cows’ milk exclusion diet in infancy

Nutrient Age between specific time points (weeks) p value Nature of difference in intake
Protein 28–32 p = 0.039 Intake higher in milk-free infants compared to control infants between these weeks
Fat 32–36 p = 0.023 Intake increases in milk-free infants at a greater rate than intake in control infants between these weeks
Calcium 36–40 p = 0.025 Intake decreases in milk-free infants but increases in control infants between these weeks
Iron 24–28 p = 0.028 Intake increases slightly in milk-free infants but increases sharply in control infants between these weeks
Selenium 24–28 p = 0.049 Intake increases dramatically in milk-free infants but only slightly in control infants between these weeks
Vitamin E 32–36 P = 0.044 Intake increases dramatically in milk-free infants but decreases slightly in control infants between these weeks
