A Revolution

There once was a time when treating severely malnourished children was a hopeless endeavor. Children had to stay in hospitals for weeks, and the milk powder-based formulas they needed to survive were costly and impractical. Portable, ready-to-eat, shelf-stable Plumpy’Nut® changed everything: hospital beds were freed up, more children could be reached, and parents didn’t have to neglect their households while their children recovered at home.
