Supplementary feeding programmes are the emerging need in under nutrition for vulnerable segment in the population. Food which is used for additional requirement and supply adequate nutrient hence soyachakali was formulated and evaluated for its organoleptic qualities like taste, texture, flavour and over all acceptability. Highly scored soyachakali was selected for feeding. The nutritional qualities likes major nutrients such as energy(465.0kcal), proteins (19.3 g) and fats (20.8 g) content found more in soychakali. The micro nutrients such as iron (4.9 mg), zinc (2.1 mg) and calcium (245.5 mg) were also observed higher range in soychakali It also noted that it content, very less antinutrtional factors. It has shown better keeping qualities upto two months when stored in a high gauge package at room temperature. Soychakali has also shown very low production cost. Hence, it found very cheap and affordable to the below poverty line group of children. The soychakali was given @ 50 g/ child/day. The biochemical parameters such as haemoglobin g/dl, serum protein g/dl, blood glucose level mg/dl; serum vitamin A g/dl, serum iron g/dl and serum zinc g/dl were analyzed for the every month of interval during research work. Significant effect on increasing blood glucose level, blood haemoglobin, serum protein, serum vitamin A, serum iron and serum zinc status of preschool children were seen after supplementation of soychakali for six months.
