The fight against poverty begins with a child’s education. And every child’s education begins with good nutrition.
Brain Power: Poor nutrition can lower a child’s cognitive development and even limit her IQ by 10 to 15 points. For school-age children, being well-nourished improves concentration, focus, memory, reasoning, problem-solving and other creative skills.
A Bankable Difference: A nourished mind helps children rise out of poverty. Studies show that good nutrition before age two can result in increased economic potential by up to 46%.
Extra Strength: Good nutrition is critical for children to grow strong and reach their full height and a healthy weight. In many countries more than 50% of all children suffer from stunted growth. Low height-for-age is associated with a significant decrease in mental capacity, adverse school performance and reduced work productivity.
Nourishing the Mind: Learn about the essential nutrients that are critical for a child's brain to develop.
A Healthy Investment: It is time we give children the right start and make good nutrition a global priority. The first 1,000 days from a woman's pregnancy to a child's second year of life is a "window of opportunity." Good nutrition will support good health, growth and development, while poor nutrition will result in irreversible damages to a child's physical and mental growth. Help us invest in sustainable solutions - such as home nutrition packets - giving children the right start to grow, thrive and reach their full potential.
