|2. Definitions and descriptions|
Supplementation studies have focused on pregnant and lactating women, and the infant and young child. Occasionally older children and workers have been targeted, and in some cases the whole family may have been recipients. In supplementation programmes, as opposed to research studies, the most needy may have to be identified and targeted. The planning and policy issues of targeting are not considered in this paper.
