ABSTRACT
The aim of this study was to determine the physicochemical composition of Bennimix Baby Food (BBF): a traditional weaning food produced in Sierra Leone and compared with cerelac which is similar to BBF in appearance. Results revealed that BBF was lower in protein content which was 14.1 g, but higher in carbohydrate, fat, fibre, ash, moisture and energy as compared to cerelac in the following amounts, 73.3, 6.3, 2.8, 2.1, 3.6 g and 478 cal, respectively. Vitamins for BBF were very small in quantity. Cerelac has significant (P
