Micronutrient powder (MNP)

Micronutrient powders are used to fortify foods in settings where micronutrients are insufficient to promote optimal growth in children or in pregnant women. Maternova specializes in bulk packaging of micronutrients, in keeping with the World Food Program Guidelines for feeding 20 children at a time.

  • Suitable for infants and young children
  • Available in encapsulated form
  • No need to swallow pills and vitamins

THE PROBLEM

Anaemia is a public health concern in developing countries, with the most vulnerable groups being children and pregnant women. The underlying causes of anaemia in children is nutrient deficiencies such as iron deficiency, as well as folic acid, zinc, vitamins A and B12. Anaemia can also be present due to preexisting health conditions such as HIV, tuberculosis and others. Anaemia in the early stages of life can cause severe consequences on mental, physical, and social development of children. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that 56% of all pregnant women in developing countries suffer from anaemia. This affects their productive and reproductive capabilities and increases the risk of perinatal mortality and death during delivery and postpartum. Even though anaemia is affecting millions of people every year, the causes are largely preventable with proper nutrition.

THE SOLUTION

Micronutrients have been studied and scaled in the field for well over 20 years and represent one of public health's most promising and widespread interventions. The Maternova micronutrients powder is a low-cost, convenient solution created to improve health and well-being of women and children. Because the micronutrients are in encapsulated form, they may be sprinkled over regular meals enhancing the food with micronutrients but not interfering with the taste. This innovation means that children can be properly dosed without having to swallow pills or vitamins. There have been many different studies of the effect of MNPs on children's health. A 2014 cluster randomized effectiveness trial in Cambodia  found that multi-month supplementation with MNPs did reduce anemia significantly and increase mean serum zinc in infants.
