Improving Children’s Nutrition in the UK
We provide healthy supplemental food, free of charge, to select nurseries serving children who are at nutritional risk.
Vitamin Angels UK is partnering with a national charity called the National Day Nurseries Association (NDNA) to reach more than a thousand children. The twelve participating nurseries serve children from low-income families who could benefit from increased access to better nutrition.
Nurseries receive weekly deliveries of self-selected fruits, vegetables, and protein-rich foods. The package is designed to contribute to a quality diet* by complementing existing nutrition services and reducing the prevalence of both inadequate nutrient intakes and of excessive nutrient intakes.
