Research with WAZ Index, 17,6% children in underweight status. MISUKE (vegetable oil, milk &
soybean) is a nutrient-dense supplement made from vegetable oil, skim milk and soybeans which are a
high source of energy and protein but in small volume and in powder form.
Objective : The aims of this study was to determine the effect of MISUKE formula on the nutritional
status of underweight children.

Samples taken by 30 underweight children under five. This research was carried out in working area of
Sudiang Raya Health Center in Makassar city.
Results : The results showed that there was an increase in body weight before and after consume
MISUKE around 0.25 grams with a p value of 0,000, besides that there was a significant increase in
energy and carbohydrate intake after giving misuke with p values respectively (0,000 and 0.001), and
for There was also an increase in fat protein intake, but not significantly with p values (0.56) and (0.51),
respectively. Thus, MISUKE can be used as an alternative food for malnourished children.
