Biochemical parameters represent better, precise and objective tools towards the assessment of nutritional status of children in comparison to anthropometric, clinical and dietary methods. They constitute laboratory tests to estimate the concentration of circulating nutrients in the body fluids. Biochemical parameters are suggestive of acute or subclinical condition when the other methods of nutritional assessment fail to interpret the condition. These parameters exhibit substantial variability in their reproducibility. Moreover, these parameters are novel tools in the hands of the clinicians for the screening of nutritional status of children.
