Scientists Develop 'Remarkable' Food To Restore Healthy Microbes In Malnourished Children : Goats and Soda : NPR

A new type of therapeutic food, specifically designed to repair the gut microbiomes of malnourished children, is superior to standard therapy in an initial clinical trial conducted in Bangladesh.

For malnourished children, new therapeutic food boosts gut microbes, healthy development

They found that a diet that promoted certain microbial species in the gut seemed to help malnourished children in Bangladesh more than standard therapy.They found that a diet that promoted certain microbial species in the gut seemed to help malnourished children in Bangladesh more than standard therapy.
