Six months food intervention based on skim milk only improved 65% of the undernourished children. Since gastrointestinal tract of such childrents incapable of digesting high molecular weight of carbohydrate and protein, there is a need to develop an easily digested food formula which has high glycaemic index.

Objective: to produce high glycaemic index formula using dextrinized carbohydrate and fermented skim milk that is easily digested for undernourished children.

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.
