what i get is that this raw food is for the other vulnerable children to avoid sharing and also take care of existing nutrition gaps. This foods should qualify in the cultural acceptability and palatability as much as it is to be nutritious. Please take care of energy required in its preparation both time and fuel by teaching them simple methods like soaking to reduce time and energy use. Local conditions will determine availability of a cereal, pulse, oil and mineral vitamix mix ?

Hi Imran, You can distribute the recommended food basket of a cereal, a legume and oil as your General Food Distribution (GFD) ration. The food quantity to distribute should meet the minimum requirement of 2100Kcal/person in the household.

Hi, It is going to be tricky receiving a list of foods from all over the world. I would suggest that you critically examine the diets of that community and identify nutritious foods from their diets and then seek to supply them with those. Bear in mind that palatabiltiy and acceptability of the food you suggest will play a great role in the achievement of your goal.
