You might remember that last week I wrote about Future Fortified’s infographic detailing hunger and its effects on children in the developing world. Simple access to food as well as vitamins will help a children become a healthier adult.
I am proud to announce that we have partnered with Vitamin Angels. Vitamin Angels connects children under five with essential nutrients, giving them the chance for a brighter future.
Essential nutrients, including vitamin A and multivitamins, can make a dramatic impact on children’s lives. By addressing nutritional gaps we can improve children’s health which can lead to greater educational achievement and economic productivity, ultimately helping them break the cycle of poverty. When you give children nutrients, you don’t just give them nutrients, you give them an opportunity and a chance for a brighter future.
In 2011, Vitamin Angels connected approximately 25,000,000 children in 41 countries, including the US, with the vital nutrients they need as a foundation for good health. To learn more visit vitaminangels.org
