    VitaMeal is a highly nutritious meal that is expertly designed by world renowned specialists to address the needs of malnourished children.

    VitaMeal's wholesome food ingredients provide the right amounts of calories, proteins, fats and carbohydrates that undernourished children need to grow and develop to their fullest potential.

    VitaMeal is fortified with 25 essential vitamins and minerals in highly efficacious amounts to help correct any nutrient deficiencies and to promote healthy growth and development.

    VitaMeal is high in Vitamin A. Vitamin A deficiency is the leading cause of blindness in children worldwide (xerophthalmia) and is a key factor for child mortality and affects 125-250 million children in 90 Third World countries (Furr HC: Retinol; In: Encyclopedia of Human Nutrition; Sadler MJ et al., eds., Academic Press 1999). Vitamin A is also essential for normal immune function to help fight infectious diseases that are common in developing countries.

    VitaMeal is high in zinc. Zinc deficiency is widespread in developing countries, causes growth retardation and makes children vulnerable to infections and diarrhoea. Diarrhoea diseases are estimated to kill over 3 million children every year worldwide and zinc supplementation reduces the duration and severity of childhood diarrhoea.

    VitaMeal is unique, because it helps break the vicious cycle of malnutrition: Malnutrition => Vitamin and mineral deficiencies = > Infections and Diarrhoea => Malnutrition => and so forth. Ordinary relief programmes may provide enough calories and protein, but typically lack the vitamins and minerals it takes to restore normal immune function.

    VitaMeal provides generous mounts of bone nutrients for normal growth and skeletal development.

    VitaMeal contains high amounts of the essential fatty acids, which are required for normal brain development, skin health and immune defence.

    VitaMeal provides electrolytes, especially potassium, which are needed to maintain normal fluid balance and muscle function, especially in malnourished children.

    VitaMeal has a great tasting roasted maize and soy bean formula that people in Malawi are accustomed to eating.
