Plumpy’Sup™ is a peanut based formula developed by Nutriset, for the rehabilitation of children with Moderate Acute Malnutrition among children. Results that can be achieved with Plumpy’Sup™ have shown to be superior to those attained with fortified blended flours.
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 though 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.
