In certain groups.: -loss of appetite is one of the signs of Folic Acid deficiency. -in preschool children with poor appetite Folic Acid given for 20 days increased hunger (2007). -rats on a diet without folate for 23 days had low weight, gained it after supplementation (1989). -folic acid is especially important in infancy, adolescence, pregnancy (it protects against ntds) when cells ; tissues are growing rapidly.
