Plumpy nut fed to famine affected Somali children
Half of the children arriving in the Dadaab refugee camp in Kenya are severely malnourished, according to the UN's Children's Fund.
With over 1,300 famine-affected Somalis crossing into Kenya every day, the camp resources are strained.
Eighty percent of them are women and children.
UNICEF is speeding up its delivery of ready-to-use therapeutic food to serve the growing needs.
Arnold Turner a UNICEF senior advisor on micronutrients says a peanut-based paste called plumpy nut is being fed to the children.
