Lack of knowledge about proper nutrition is a common problem. Mothers like Angela (15) often don’t realize the importance of a varied diet. Vitamin Angels often partners with local organizations that address undernutrition through a holistic approach, running not only vitamin and deworming campaigns, but nutrition education, feeding programs, water purification, gardening projects and more. Thanks to the nutrition education Angela she received along with her son, Eilimin’s (8 months) first dose of vitamin A, she has begun to diversify her meals by adding beans and vegetables to a diet that previously consisted almost exclusively of rice.
