Abstract
Children are the most vulnerable segment of the population to environmental contamination. Compared with adults, children have higher intake rates relative to their body weight, their organs and tissues are in an earlier stage of development and they show unhealthy behavioural habits, as they frequently put their hands and objects into their mouth. Among the different exposure routes in urban environments, the ingestion pathway generally accounts for the highest proportion of the overall risk. Therefore, there is a credible need to estimate the level of exposure of children to pollutants in their diet. The objective of this study was to determine the heavy metal concentration in commercial infant food and the dietary habits of the infant population in order to conduct a simplified human-health risk assessment.
