Children from 6 months of age and above who fall under the cut-off for moderate acute malnutrition need to receive an adapted diet that allows them to regain a normal nutritional status.
The invention of Plumpy’Sup™ made home treatment/ambulatory or outpatient care possible for moderate malnourished children with an appetite and without medical complications. Even thought Plumpy’Sup™ can be used at home under the supervision of the mother or another member of the family, the vulnerable condition of severely malnourished children requires a health practitioner’s prescription and regular medical check-ups. Plumpy SUP can be used in the home, which makes the product particularly well adapted to emergency situations or malnutrition prevention feeding programmes
