OXFAM and MSF have developed kits for nutritional support. All the kits are packed by OXFAM and should be ordered through them. For organizational reasons, the kits have different OXFAM and MSF codes but have identical contents.
This kit contains equipment for measuring weight and height of children to assess nutritional status and materials needed for nutritional surveys by two teams.

Supplementary feeding (wet) kit
Designed for 250 people, moderately malnourished children or other vulnerable groups and includes feeding and cooking equipment. Recent guidelines discourage the use of wet supplementary feeding programmes but do recommend they are only implemented when populations have limited access to fuel and water, where security conditions place people at risk when taking rations home or for groups who are in need of additional food but are unable to cook for themselves.
