Goleta, CA—Vitamin Angels US has announced a program partnership with Vitamin Angels UK that will provide free supplemental food packages to select nurseries serving children in the UK who are at nutritional risk. Specifically, the program aims to reduce the prevalence of both inadequate and excessive nutrient intakes.
“One in four children in the UK grow up at risk for food insecurity,” said Ann Micka Vitamin Angels UK Senior Program Manager, in a press release. “We are grateful to be an official program partner of Vitamin Angels US so that together we can improve nutrition for young children in the UK who need it most.”
Currently, Vitamin Angels UK serves over 400 children from low-income families and by the end of 2020, the company will double their program efforts and launch a nutrition education program in which nutritional resources will be distributed via print and digital media to NDNA’s network of over six thousand nurseries in the UK.
