Proven Nutrition Interventions Improve Health and Save Lives
At Vitamin Angels, we only implement high-impact, evidence-based nutrition interventions. We focus our package of nutrition solutions on the time between a woman’s pregnancy and a child’s fifth birthday. The vital first 1,000 days – from pregnancy through age two – is particularly critical to increasing child survival, improving growth and development, and ensuring positive health outcomes for the mother.
Our Package of Nutrition Solutions
To improve overall health we provide our program partners with evidence-based approaches and interventions – from high-quality vitamins and minerals to educational and counseling programming designed to encourage positive behavior change. All of the nutritional supplements and pharmaceutical products we distribute are manufactured to internationally recognized quality and manufacturing standards. To ensure our program partners can deliver interventions effectively, we provide training and resources. Additionally, our educational programming is designed based on theory and evidence-based best practices.
Prenatal Vitamins and Minerals (Multiple Micronutrient Supplements)
MMS can safely and effectively improve maternal health and pregnancy outcomes and set children on a path toward healthy growth and development.
Optimal Infant and Young Child Nutrition
Promoting the early initiation of breastfeeding, exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months, and feeding nutrient-rich complementary foods, along with continued breastfeeding from 6-23 months of age, promotes the health, wellbeing, and survival of children.
Vitamin A Supplementation and Deworming
For children 6 months to 5 years of age who are at-risk for vitamin A deficiency, supplementation boosts the immune system, promotes physical growth, and can prevent blindness. Adding Albendazole, a deworming treatment, ensures children can optimally absorb the nutrients they receive, leading to improved child health and nutrition.
