When Rebecca brought her 7 month old daughter, Mirriam Mumo, to Kisesini clinic, she was markedly underweight and had the muscle wasting and swollen abdomen typical of marasmus, or severe undernutrition. Malnutrition is best assessed by measuring the mid-upper arm circumference.
After 2 months of therapeutic feeding with the supplements Plumpy’nut and Unimix along with nutrition education, Mirriam transformed into a normal healthy little girl.
