Malnutrition affects million of people in developing countries; mostly it affects preschool-aged children and pregnant and lactating women. However government and international institutions have pursued a variety of intervention strategies in the hope of alleviation malnutrition, though it is insufficient, as the children from different region and various socioeconomic state need specific type of nutritional requirement. In the present study, we formulate the nutrient rich food which fulfills the requirement of malnourished children and pregnant women. Previous literature was searched to collect information for nutrient rich fruits, it is found that, pumpkin (Cucurbita pepo), guava (Psidium guajava), pomegranate (Punicum granatum) and banana (Musa acuminatum) have high nutrient values. Mixed fruit pulps of these fruits were analyzed for protein, dietary fibers, vitamins and iron. Using this pulp highly nutritive biscuits was prepared. It is then again analyzed for its nutrient content. The in vivo effects of these biscuits were checked in albino mouse or malnourished children. The parameters like serum electrolytes, serum protein, serum calcium, blood sugar, complete blood analysis were checked after every seven days for eight weeks of the children who have given the different weight of biscuit.
