A group of 707 children aged 1 to 24 months from the territory of Vojvodina (10 rural and urban settlements) was examined regarding additional food (nonmilk and milk food), time of introduction, infant's age and frequency of consumption. It has been concluded that supplementary feeding, including all food, starts early. Fruit and vegetable are introduced at the age of 34 months. As for the introduction of yolk (first given at about 4 months) it differs from the modern attitudes regarding the intake of this food. Milk formulae, meat and chicken liver are usually introduced about the fifth month. Analyses of the type of food and the way of preparation point to some extremities. Special emphasis is given to the environmental specificities which determine the recommendations.
