In today's Health Matters, one type of peanut butter is helping save the lives of children half a world away.

Welcome to the Plumpy Nut factory in Providence, Rhode Island.
Plumpy Nut is peanut butter fortified with milk, vitamins and minerals.
The non-profit says three servings of Plumpy Nut a day can save the life of a starving child in Africa.

A supervisor says they are receiving reports of big changes in the children who have received the packets.

The factory turns out 150,000 packets every 24 hours.
