The purpose

1. RUTF would be more effective (quicker catch-up growth by promoting more tissue accrue resulting decrease stay in rehabilitation ward) in treating children with SAM during the rehabilitation phase than khichuri /halwa; 2. RUTF would be acceptable to the children and their mothers/caregivers; 3. Malnutrition is not caused solely by lack of food, but also by impaired utilization of the food that is ingested. The ability of the gut to absorb nutrients from the diet is associated with the host's 'human' genotype, the host's gut microbiota and its gene content (the microbiome).
