HERE, READ THIS IMPORTANT THING ON FOOD AID: So apparently there are these things called “ready-to-use therapeutic foods,” and they do miracle things for malnourished babies and mothers. But the US does not spend food-aid money on these RUTFs, because they’re usually manufactured overseas and US food aid $$ have to be spent on food made stateside. So now some lady has started up an RUTF-making plant in beautiful Providence, Rhode Island! But really the very important take-away is this: her product, the miracle food that saves the lives of little starving babies, is called Plumpy’nut. This is also the name of Sarah Palin’s seventeenth child. [Newsweek]
