Do to my California siesta we had no Mondays with Marjie last week. We’re making up for it today with this amazing link Marjie sent me to an Anderson Cooper article featuring a nutritional breakthrough and the research of Doctors without Borders relief group.
It’s cheap, easy to make, and even easier to use. What is this miraculous cure? As CNN’s Anderson Cooper reports, it’s a ready-to-eat, vitamin-enriched concoction called “Plumpynut,” an unusual name for a food that may just be the most important advance ever to cure and prevent malnutrition.
This inexpensive, peanut butter flavored, non-refrigerated miracle paste seems to be the answer to one of the world’s largest problems of malnutrition.
My heart beats for solving global poverty and hunger, so reading about this wonder plumpynut-potion makes me want to donate every tub of Jiff in my cupboard to Doctors without Borders. [I wonder if they can do anything with my extra navy beans?]
Here’s the UNICEF video of the wonder paste, aka “plumpynut”
