Summary of evidence and Expert Committee recommendations
The EMLc Subcommittee accepted the public health need for supplementation with folic acid in children. Therefore, the Subcommittee agreed to endorse folic acid as an essential medicine for children. Appropriate formulations of folic acid need to be included to cover the needs of neonates to adolescents. They should have appropriate excipients for children.
