Malnutrition is the greatest threat to global public health. It has estimated that 178 million children are malnourishedaround the World. Whereas 40 per cent children are found under nourished among them 6.4 per cent are estimated severelymalnourished in India. Hence supplementary feeding must be the additional nutrients which are providing for the optionalgrowth and desirable change in health status. Supplementary foods must be based on the formulation of the requirednutrients for the treating of malnutrition, return the child to physiological, immunological and biochemical normality. Theorganoleptically high scored soyaladoo was prepared analyzed for nutritional qualities likes major nutrients such asenergy(470.0kcal), proteins (20.1 g) and fats (22.0 g) content found more in soyaladoo. The micro nutrients such as iron (6.3mg), zinc (3.8 mg) and calcium (286.5 mg) were also observed higher range in soyaladoo. Soyaladoo has also shown verylow production cost. Hence, it found very cheap and affordable to the below poverty line group of children. The soyaladoowas given @ 50 g/ child/day for six months.The biochemical parameters such as haemoglobin g/dl, serum protein g/dl, bloodglucose level mg/dl, serum vitamin A µ/dl, serum iron µg/dl and serum zinc µg/dl were analyzed for the every month ofinterval during research work. Soyaladoo supplementation shown a highly significant effect on increasing blood glucoselevel, blood haemoglobin, serum protein, serum vitamin A, serum iron and serum zinc status of preschool children.
