Ready-to-use therapeutic food (RUTF). 2-3 packs of this can make a child's weight dramatically increase w/in a week.

Every Thursday, mothers have their babies weighed in this rural health center to monitor weight gain.

If the child's arm circumference is 11.5cm or below (red zone), he or she has severe acute malnutrition.

This mid upper arm circumference (MUAC) tape is d fastest way to check if a child is malnourished.
