The food rations served to children in the nursery school properly covered the demand for energy, protein, carbohydrates, fat, vitamins of the B-group, vitamin E, and the minerals such as iron and magnesium. Additionally, the meals served were characterized by a proper proportion among the amounts of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins in order to satisfy the total energy demands. In the case of such components as: vitamin C, calcium, copper and zinc, it was found that their intake was insufficient with regard to the demands for them. The levels of sodium as determined in the food rations served exceeded twice the standard values defined as safe for consumption. The incorrect intake of mineral components was reflected by the improper ratio between calcium and phosphorus , as well as between sodium and potassium.
