The growth, health and efficiency of a population are determined by adequate food supply, furnishing all the essential nutrients in the required quantities. The recommended dietary allowances (RDA) are the basis to plan, formulate and provide adequate diets. Hence, it is very essential to make sure that the dietary allowances are realistic.
