Organoleptically high score soyflakes chiwada elevaluated for its nutritional components such as moisture (4.1 per cent), ash (2.4 per cent), crude fiber (0.8 per cent), crude protein (21.4 per cent), iron (5.3 mg), calcium (74.0mg), zinc (2.7mg), ß carotene (235. ug) and B complex vitamins like B1 (0.2mg),B2 (0.1mg)and B3 (2.01mg) etc. Such soyaflakes chiwada was provided to selected malnourished preschool children. At the @ 50 g/ child/day to preschool malnourished children .They were selected by evaluating weight for height and body mass index. Grade II and III grade of malnutrition .The significant change in the anthropometric measurements such as weight ,arm circumference, skin fold thickness, wrist circumference, mid arm mid muscle circumference had been seen in soy flakes chiwada supplemented group.
