Plumpy’nut…What a Concept October 24, 2007Posted by smooregasbord in Food, TV/Movies.
Sunday night I was watching 60 Minutes on CBS and Anderson Cooper was featuring a story regarding a product called Plumpy’nut. This peanut-based paste is currently being used by Doctors Without Borders to save children from dying of malnutrition. The coolest thing about it is how cheap it is…only $1 for a daily ration! It was amazing to see something so simple and inexpensive having such a massive effect on famine in parts of Africa. If you’re interested in finding out more about this product and where it is being used, you can check out their website.
