Adani Foundation is implementing a project for 'curbing malnutrition' in the age group of 0-5 years of children. In addition to behavior change communication, Adani Foundation is also working for curative part of malnutrition. Adani Foundation has identified 400 SAM children (MUAC less than 11.5) and 5000 MAM children (MUAC in between 11.5 to 12.5 CM) using MUAC tape. RUTF has been provided for SAM children and results are very encouraging,
Adani Foundation is looking for some suitable cost effective solution for 5000 MAM children, Please provides details along with cost of treatment.

Dear Ajay,
MAM children can be treated by RUTF, 500 Kcal per day per child along with some IYCF, Routine Medication, and Wash interventions. Web link for expanded criteria is attached for your reference

As you have mentioned that you have used RUTF for SAM Managment so the Same food can be used for MAM Management
