How Lifesaving Therapeutic Food is Made

November 20, 2016

Members of the UNICEF Kid Power Team get active to unlock packets of Ready-To-Use Therapeutic Food. Get a first hand look at how these lifesaving packets are made, and how they are helping kids around the world survive and thrive.


I’m looking for ways to help the world around me. Thanks to groups large and small, we have the tools to take on the problem of global malnutrition. RUTF is one of those tools. RUTF – a special protein and vitamin pack peanut paste. I’m happy because we know that these peanuts are going to save a lot of children. With your help, we can help end global malnutrition.
