Hi all, I am working in a project implementing Supplementary Programmes (both TSFP and BSP) among U5 and PLW. The food commodities for the programme includes CSB+, CSB++, Oil, sugar, Plumpy dos, and Supplementary Plumpy. Although, I read in various technical discussion on the amount (e.g., 1sachet Supplementary Plumpy/day/child), I couldn't find a guideline or technical notes on the amount of these products for the MAM cases. I appreciate if someone can assist me finding any relevant documents/guidelines on the amount to be given for MAM cases as well as other info like admission/discharge and length of stay, etc. Thank you in advance for your response, Sofia
