The Problem VA Addresses: Undernutrition, also known as “hidden hunger”, occurs when individuals consume enough calories to survive, but the foods they are eating lack adequate nutritional value. Undernutrition is caused by a variety of sources, and can affect families in any country. Poverty, food insecurity, lack of opportunity, limited resources, and even political instability can impact a child’s or mother’s nutritional status.

Children under five, pregnant women, and new mothers are the most vulnerable to hidden hunger. This condition for young children can cause a downward spiral of poor health, which can result in immediate life-threatening conditions, or in extreme cases, even death. In fact, hidden hunger is the single most important underlying cause of preventable child deaths.  

Vitamin Angels’ Approach: Vitamins Angels is working to combat hidden hunger through a comprehensive approach that starts with vitamin supplementation and includes support for breastfeeding, deworming, nutrition education and more.  Vitamin A is one of five micronutrients critical for growth and development, including boosting immune function and good eye health. Children’s multivitamins provide a wide range of nutrients to support proper physical and mental development. Prenatal multivitamins are critical for the moms Vitamin Angels serves to have safe and healthy pregnancies, and for their children to have healthy starts to life. By pairing deworming treatments with vitamin A supplementation means worms are eliminated from a child’s system which also allows for increased absorption of vitamin A.
