NUTRITION




Nutrition is a science that examines the
relationship between diet and health.
Dietitians are health professionals who
specialize in this area of study, and are
trained to provide safe, evidence-based
dietary advice and interventions.

MALNUTRITION




Malnutrition is a general term for a
medical condition caused by an improper
or insufficient diet. It most often
refers to undernutrition resulting from
inadequate consumption, poor absorption,
or excessive loss of nutrients, but the
term can also encompass overnutrition,
resulting from overeating or excessive
intake of specific nutrients.

An individual will experience malnutrition
if the appropriate amount of, or quality
of nutrients comprising a healthy diet are
not consumed for an extended period of time.



An extended period of
malnutrition can result
in:

starvation,

disease,

infection.

A
HEALTHY
DIET




Maintaining a healthy diet is the practice
of making choices about what to eat with
the intent of improving or maintaining good
health.

Usually this involves consuming necessary
nutrients by eating the appropriate amounts
from all of the food groups. Since human
nutrition is complex a healthy diet may vary
widely subject to an individual's genetic
makeup, environment, and health.

For around 20% of the planet's population,
lack of food and malnutrition are the main
impediments to healthy eating.

PLUMPY
NUT




Plumpy'nut, also known as Plumpy, a
peanut-based food for use in famine
relief which was formulated in 1999
by André Briend, a French scientist.

Plumpy'nut is a high protein and high
energy peanut-based paste in a foil
wrapper. It tastes slightly sweeter
than peanut butter. It is categorized
by the WHO as a Ready-to-Use Therapeutic
Food (RUTF).

Plumpy’nut requires no preparation or
special supervision, making it easy to
deploy in difficult conditions.

Plumpy'nut is very difficult to over eat
and keeps even after opening. It has a 2
year shelf life when unopened. The product
was inspired by the popular Nutella spread.

It is manufactured by Nutriset, a French
company, that specializes in making food
supplements for relief work in their
factory near Rouen in northern France.



The ingredients are:

peanut paste,
vegetable oil,
milk powder,
powdered sugar,
vitamins and minerals,
combined in a foil pouch.

Each pack provides
500 Calories.


Plumpy'Nut contains:

vitamins A,
B-complex,
C, D, E, K,

minerals:
calcium,
phosphorus,
potassium,
magnesium,
zinc,
copper,
iron,
iodine,
sodium,
selenium.
