The feasibility assessment using Jadad Score. Results: The analysis of 9 selected articles showed LNS affected prevention of growth retardation measured from age length Z value (LAZ), age weight Z value (WAZ) and Z-measurement. Circumference height (HCZ) score, no display value <2.0 indicates that the incidence of developmental delay and body mass index (BMIZ) Z score, upper-middle arm circumference (MUAC), and body length aren't lower than the average.
