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

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.  Because the micronutrients are in encapsulated form, they may be sprinkled over top the regular meal enhancing the food with micronutrients but not interfering with the test. 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.
