I read something yesterday about a french company that makes tubes of peanut butter that are marketed to aid agencies only, to be provided to malnourished children. currently its being provided in darfur and has helped a lot of children gain weight quickly. it also does away with powdered products that need to be mixed with clean water.
but the best part is the product name- plumpy nuts.
of course, i immediately wanted to be doing just that- coming up with innovative food ideas that could help malnourished children. food and saving lives- what could give me better job
or maybe not. having spoken to people who've worked in rwanda, i'd probably not sleep too well at night, knowing what was going on outside. i'll just stick to the sheltered life for a little longer then..
