Nias Island in Indonesia was severely affected by the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami and a consequent earthquake
some months later. A 2005 survey led by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) found a high prevalence (12.8%) of wasting (defined as Weight-for-Height Z-score, or WHZ) among children aged below five years in South Nias, which is also one of the poorest sub-districts in Indonesia.1 About two years later, Church World Service Indonesia (CWS) reported as many as 11.9% of children were still wasted in its intervention area on Nias
Island,2 and began piloting a newly developed Readyto- Use Food (RUF) to reduce the prevalence of wasting.
