Chronic Malnutrition

Chronic Malnutrition

This is a condition that develops when children do not eat the correct
balance of nutrients in the first 1,000 days of life (from conception to the age of two), resulting in the stunting of their mental and physical development. Stunted children’s immune defences are impaired, putting them at greater risk of common acute infections such as diarrhoea, measles, malaria and pneumonia.

VALID Nutrition has developed a Ready-to-Use Complementary Food (RUCF) / LNS-Small Quantity (LNS-SQ) to prevent chronic malnutrition in children over 6 months to 24 months.”

Note: breastfeeding is recommended until at least 24 months (exclusive up to 6 months). All VALID Nutrition products are only for children > 6 months and do not replace breastfeeding.

VALID Nutrition Malawi

Wonderful piece from WFP Malawi working towards reduction efforts to the Stunting problem. Valid Nutrition Malawi has produced over 44 million sachets of Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food (RUTF), enough to treat around 350,000 children with Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM). By producing locally in Malawi & with support of customers such as WFP, UNICEF and the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) we have been preventing the need for RUTF to be imported. Furthermore, we are assisting local farmers and suppliers as well as providing employment & skills transfer. All this has a hugely beneficial multiplier effect on the local economy.

We at Valid fully supports the drive that ensure a fair start for all children in life which ensures they get good nutrition at critical stages of development, the 1000 initial days of life from conception till age of 2 years!
