VitaMeal - more than a meal

Malnourished children are missing essential nutrients in their diets, which can hinder brain, bone, and immune system development. Most humanitarian food consists mainly of grain, such as corn, but may lack other essential nutrients necessary for healthy growth. VitaMeal was formulated by Nu Skin’s nutritional scientists to determine the ingredients and ratios that are best suited for a malnourished child. The result is a product that includes highly effective levels of essential vitamins and minerals.

Key ingredients of VitaMeal include

  • A balance of carbohydrates, protein, fat, and fiber
  • Essential fatty acids required for healthy brain development, skin health and immune defense
  • Electrolytes necessary for maintaining healthy fluid balance and muscle function
  • Vitamin A, which is essential for normal sight and immune functions
  • Bone nutrients for healthy growth and skeletal development

VitaMeal is vegetarian and non-dairy and allows for the easy addition of ingredients to fit every taste and culture.

Creating Opportunities

Drawing Children to School

VitaMeal donations are generally distributed through school programs, motivating parents living in poverty to send their children—especially girls—to school for a free meal, rather than keeping them home to work. The World Bank has recognized that “there is no investment more effective for achieving development goals than educating girls.”
