Malnutrition is caused by not having enough of essential food and necessary nutrition. Among children, recurrent infections is the prime cause of malnutrition in many tropical countries. Mostly, inadequate nutrition restricts recovery from infection, thus setting up a vicious illness and malnutrition cycle. One way to break this vicious cycle is by providing ill children with nutritional supplements, viz. Ready-To-Use Drinkable Therapeutic Food (RUTF). They have proved to be highly active in promoting rapid weight gain in children suffering from severe acute malnutrition.

According to Persistence Market Research report, titled “Ready-to-use Therapeutic Food Market: Global Industry Analysis and Forecast, 2016–2024”, the global ready-to-use therapeutic food market in 2015 was valued at US$ 249.2 million, and is anticipated estimated to account for value worth US$ 276 million by the end of 2016, exhibiting a Y-o-Y growth rate of 10.7% while in terms of value, it is anticipated to grow at a healthy CAGR of 10.6% in the forecast period from 2016 to 2024.

Universally, malnutrition is believed to contribute to nearly half of all child deaths. Malnutrition can be chronic, resulting to stunting. According to WHO Child Growth Standards that chart the progress of a reference population, a stunted child endures a short height with respect to age. An acute malnutrition causes wasting and a child who is wasted has a low weight for his height.
