Supplementary feeding programmes are the emerging need in under nutrition for vulnerable segment in the population.Supplementary feeding must be the additional nutrients which are providing for the optional growth and desirable change inhealth status in particular. Hence, supplementary foods must be based on the formulation of the required nutrients for thetreating of malnutrition, as well as food must has nutracetical properties which return in the child the physiological,immunological and biochemical normality. The supplementary feeding programme was conducted to malnourishedpreschool children for six months of period. Organoleptically high scored formulated soya flakes chiwada evaluated for itsnutritional components and ant nutritional factors. Such soyaflakes chiwada was given @ 50g per child for experimentalgroup I and no any supplementary foods was given to control group II. The cost of soyaflakes chiwada was affordable. Thestandard of ICMR about providing energy, protein and fat was maintained. Their biochemical parameters such ashaemoglobin g/dl, serum protein g/dl, blood glucose level mg/dl; serum vitamin A µg/dl, serum iron µg/dl and serum zincµg/dl were analyzed for the every month of interval during research work were analyzed. The significant change in theirbiochemical parameters has been seen.
