A statement from the UN agency said the Plumpy'doz is the latest generation of ready-to-use food designed to satisfy the nutritional needs of young children aged 6 to 36 months and supplement available food from general food distributions by partners such as the World Food Program (WFP) as well as other traditional food sources.
