Micronutrient Powder - Sprinkles Macronutrient Supplements

Type

A micronutrient powder that is virtually flavorless, making it ideal to be mixed with infant foods without significantly changing the taste or smell of the food. Sprinkles is an innovation in ‘home-fortification’ to address vitamin and mineral deficiencies.  We offer Basic or Plus versions of the micronutrient supplements.

Please note that Sprinkles are only available in very large orders of 10,000 sachets or more.

Sprinkles are a unique delivery system to provide micronutrients to vulnerable populations enabling families to fortify many different semi-solid foods in the home. Sprinkles macronutrient supplement is typically given to children ages 6 to 24 months. However, it can be provided to children up to 5 years in age successfully.

Sprinkles are sachets (like small packets of sugar) containing a blend of micronutrients in powder form, which are easily sprinkled onto foods prepared in the home. Any
homemade food can be instantly fortified by adding Sprinkles micronutrient powder. Coating of the iron prevents changes to the taste, color or texture of the food to which Sprinkles are added.

Sprinkles were developed by the Sprinkles Global Health Initiative to prevent and treat
anemia and micronutrient deficiencies among young children and other vulnerable groups at risk.

The Problem

Recent WHO/UNICEF estimates suggest that the number of children with iron
deficiency and anemia is approximately 750 million (UNICEF 2003). Iron deficiency
remains the most common preventable nutritional deficiency despite continued global
goals for its reduction (WHO 2001). In developing countries, it is estimated that more
than 40 to 50% of children less than 5 years of age are iron deficient, primarily due to a
diet inadequate in bioavailable iron (UNICEF/MI 2004).
