For Children after 6 months of Age
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® is specifically formulated to the nutritional rehabilitation of moderate acute malnourished children. It can also be used to prevent severe malnutrition, particularly with children just finishing therapeutic feeding programmes.
it can be used in the home, which makes the product particularly well adapted to emergency situations or malnutrition prevention feeding programmes.
