Plumpy'Nut® is a Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food (RUTF).
For Children after 6 months of age
Plumpy’Nut® is specifically formulated to the nutritional rehabilitation of severely acute malnourished children (from six months of age and above).
The invention of Plumpy’Nut® made home treatment/ambulatory or outpatient care possible fro severely malnourished children with an appetite and without medical complications.
Even thought Plumpy'Nut® 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.
To treat Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM)
Children who fall under the cut-off for severe acute malnutrition need to receive an adapted diet that allows them to regain a normal nutritional status. Providing the same nutritional value (but without the same use constraints) than F100 therapeutic milk, Plumpy’Nut®, a lipid-based nutritional supplement with a high vitamin and mineral content, is well-adapted to the needs of severely acute malnourished children.
Community-based Management of Acute Malnutrition and the use of Plumpy’Nut® made possible to considerably increase the number of malnourished children treated, while improving adherence to the regularity of the treatment, and the recovery rate
Plumpy’Nut® complies with the nutritional composition recommended by WHO, WFP, the United Nations System Standing Committee on Nutrition and UNICEF Joint Statement: « Community-based management of severe acute malnutrition ».
