Plumpy'nut shortage for child feeding in Afghanistan

Published on 20 December 2010

Funding shortages for the UN World Food Programme (WFP) threaten supplies of plumpy'nut for infants in Afghanistan. Plumpy'nut is a special peanut paste which is highly nutritious and requires no preparation. It is a ready-to-eat family of foods (including supplementary plumpy, plumpy'doz) that can save infants from deadly malnutrition.
