Plumpy'nut is a vitamin-enriched mash that's designed specifically to help malnourished children return to health. It can be made with local ingredients, side-steps problems of using dirty water in powdered milk, and can be provided by mothers without direct medical supervision. In short, as Jamais Cascio wrote five years ago, it's "a simple idea, well-executed, with significantly positive results and opportunities for local empowerment." The New York Times Magazine has an update on the Plumpy'nut story; Andrew Rice explores how the easily replicable, yet trademarked, peanut paste has evolved, and been imitated, over the last five years: The Peanut Solution.
