Method: Two groups of subjects, each consists of 34 and 33 undernourished children were given either high glycaemic index formula (test group) or skim milk formula (control group) for 4 months. The food formula compliance, anthropometric measurement, blood and fecal component were analyzed.

Results: There were increase in body weight of test group even though not changing their nutritional status based on Z-score. The blood and fecal component data indicated that the high glycaemic formula can be digested well by the undernourished children.
