This research will serve as a follow-up on the review of Title II commodities performed by the Food Aid Quality Review at Tufts University in October 2011. The study in Burkina Faso will test the relative effectiveness and cost effectiveness of four supplementary foods in the prevention of MAM and stunting in normal programmatic settings.
The aims of this study are to:
- To compare the effectiveness of four alternative supplementary food commodities in preventing stunting and wasting, and promoting linear growth in children 6 - 23 months in the context of a preventive supplementary feeding program in Burkina Faso.
- To estimate the relative cost of implementing the supplementary feeding program using each commodity
- To estimate the relative cost/effectiveness of implementing the program using each commodity.

Active Comparator: CSB14
Isocaloric amount and cost-effectiveness of CSB14 (with whey protein concentrate and enhanced micronutrient profile), prepared with fortified vegetable oil (FVO).
Dietary Supplement: CSB14
Active Comparator: RUSF1
Isocaloric amount and cost-effectiveness of Ready-to Use Supplementary Food 1(RUSF1), USAID's Lipid-Based Nutrient Supplement (LNS) product
Dietary Supplement: RUSF1
Active Comparator: SC+
Isocaloric amount and cost-effectiveness of Supercereal Plus (SC+), the FBF used by WFP, which has an enhanced nutrient profile, dairy ingredient (non-fat dry milk), and oil already embedded into the flour
Dietary Supplement: SC+
No Intervention: CSB+
Isocaloric amount and cost-effectiveness of Supercereal/CSB+ prepared with FVO.
- Incidence of MAM and Stunting [ Time Frame: Monthly for 18 months ]
Primary outcomes to be measured are incidence of MAM and incidence of stunting during the 18 months of preventive supplementation (age 6 months to 23 months).
Stunting will be defined as less than -2 SD of Height-for-Age Z-score and MAM will be defined as less than -2 SD Weight-for-Height (length) Z-score
