  The chemical composition of the food samples ranged between 6.4 -7.9% moisture contents, 12.7-28.0% crude protein, 2.3-3.2% fat, 1.4-2.2% crude fiber, 5.2-6.5% ash and 53.7-71.8% carbohydrate, calcium 252-268mg/Kg, sodium 151.2-172.3 mg/Kg, potassium 2247-2645 mg/Kg and magnesium 152.6-260.2 mg/Kg while others iron 18.2-42.4 mg/Kg, Zinc 6.2-8.2 mg/Kg, copper 0.215-0.815 mg/Kg, aluminum 0.821-1.80 mg/Kg, phosphorous 231.6-264.3 mg/Kg and lead was not detected in the food samples. Table 5 shows the result of sensory evaluation of the formulated weaning food samples. The result showed that there was significant a difference between the control food sample and the experimental food samples in term of taste, color and aroma. The overall acceptability result showed that SP1 was rated 92% of the control, SP2 59.6%, SP3 59.6%, SP4 65.4% and SP5 51.9%. The biological evaluation result showed PER ranged between 55.4% of SP5 and 92.8% of SP3, NPU ranged between 109.9% of SP1 and 116.1% of SP5, BV ranged between 71.7% of SP5 and 111.3% of SP1 and TND ranged between 94.9% of SP4 and 117.5% of SP1. Findings show that at 20% pigeon peas flour supplementation, the meal could meet satisfactorily the recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA) for children of 1 to 3 years of age and has tolerably low antinutrients level

  A potential weaning diet was developed from locally available least expensive food items, using local processing methods. The supplement mixtures were sorghum bicolor and fermented African yam bean. The ingredients were mixed in different ratio of 90:10, 80:20, 70:30 and 60:40 and 50:50% of sorghum bicolor and African yam bean flour respectively. The results of proximate analysis of the formulated diet showed that energy value ranges between 372-432 kcal, moisture content 6.45-9.71 g, ash content 4.25-5.81 g, fat 6.19-8.75 g, protein 10.15-23.10 g, fiber content 1.06-1.70 g and carbohydrate 55.08-70.77 g. iron 135-180 mg, zinc 4.9-5.4 mg, copper 1.91-2.1 mg, sodium 760-2360 mg, phosphorous 1134.1-9144.3 mg, magnesium 144-136 mg, calcium 480-720 mg and potassium 1580-4560 mg; while others lead and aluminum were not detected in the samples. Results also show that 80% sorghum and 20% fermented African yam bean blend could meet satisfactorily the Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA) for children of 1 to 3 years of age and it has tolerably low antinutrients level
