Fifty per cent of all child deaths under the age of five in Kenya are associated with malnutrition and the levels of under-nutrition in Nairobi informal settlements are extremely high, due to risk factors including limited household food security and poor access to safe water. One in three children in the Nairobi County region face stunted growth due to malnutrition so early intervention is vitally important.
our new nutritious food and porridge will improve the health and nutrition status of children, pregnant women and people living in poor urban informal settlements in across Kenya. They are formulated to be both highly nutritious and affordable thus making it very attractive to its intended consumers.
So far we have been able to offer the nutritious foods and we need support to increase the distribution.
