Severe acute malnutrition

Severe Acute Malnutrition

Severe acute malnutrition is characterised by a sudden major weight loss. The risk of death for children under 5 years of age is high, requiring a quick nutritional and medical intervention. 

VALID Nutrition Malawi has developed a Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food (RUTF) to treat severe acute malnutrition in children over 6 months and adults. It is for institutional use upon the recommendation of a health professional.


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.
