  • Data are mean and 95% CI calculated by using linear mixed models adjusted for food intervention, baseline measure of the outcome, age, sex, mo of admission, and site (random effects).

  • a Short = <67 cm.

  • b Long = ≥67 cm.

  • c Difference in change of short versus long children.

  • d P value for difference in change from baseline to endline for short and long children.
