Enov'Nutributter® is a Lipid-based Nutrient Supplement Small Quantity (LNS-SQ)

 

✓ For children from 6 to 24 months

Ideally, babies should be exclusively breastfed up to the age of 6 months. After this, mother's milk no longer provides all the energy and nutrients the infant needs in order to grow. A high quality food supplement then becomes indispensable to compensate for this deficit, but this is sometimes unavailable or inaccessible in a large number of developing countries.

Originally developed for children aged between 6 and 12 months at risk of malnutrition, Enov'Nutributter® is now also used as an addition to continued breastfeeding (up to 24 months) and supplementary foods.

Enov'Nutributter® is reserved for use with young children and must not be shared with the other members of the family, as its micronutrient content is especially calculated to meet the needs of a child.

Several studies have shown that Enov'Nutributter® is accepted and appreciated by children and their families.

 

For the prevention of malnutrition

Enov'Nutributter® is intended to fortify the food supplements of young children and to aid in their motor and cognitive development.

Daily consumption of Enov'Nutributter® over a period of at least four months helps to compensate for any deficiencies in the supplementary food. It provides all the micronutrients (minerals and vitamins) required for growth in children of that age group. Enov'Nutributter® is also recommended as a fortifier for feeding children aged between 12 and 24 months, a key period for growth and intellectual development.

All nutritional studies highlight the first 1000 days of life, from conception to two years, as crucial for the development of a child.

In areas where malaria is endemic, it is recommended to divide the consumption of the product into two, so as to avoid the risks associated with the iron supplement contained in Enov'Nutributter®.

Studies

Key evidences of acceptability:

  • Niger:

Well accepted by children [1]

 

Key evidences of efficacy:

  • Ghana: 3 products compared: Enov’Nutributter®, Sprinkles and NutriTab. [2]

After 6 months’ supplementation in infants form 6 months old, Enov’Nutributter® had an impact on growth:

  • Infants in the Enov’Nutributter® group gained more weight (1.57 kg) and length (8.3 cm) than did those in the NutriTab group (1.35 kg and 7.8 com respectively).
  • The Enov’Nutributter® group had significantly greater weight-for-age and length-for-age z score than did the NutriTab and Sprinkles groups combined.

 

  • Haiti: [3]
  • Enov’Nutributter® improved the linear growth of young children in urban slum of Haiti.
  • Supplementation for 6 months significantly increased the length-for-age z score and the weight-for-age z score compared with the control group.
