Viva Vitamin Angels plus Whole Foods Market Giveaway

If you are a long time reader of my blog, I am sure you know by now that my children's health and nutrition is of the utmost importance to me. I do my best to make sure that are eating healthy, balanced meals. If there is something I feel they might be lacking in, I will give them a supplement. For example one of the twins does not drink milk so I do have a calcium + vitamin D supplement that he takes.

Sadly, there are millions of children in the world that aren't getting proper nutrition and suffer from various vitamin deficiencies. In fact, one in three children worldwide is undernourished. And one third of all childhood deaths are caused by under nutrition. There are 190 million children that suffer from vitamin A deficiency across the world and Vitamin Angels is trying to help them.


The Vitamin Angels organization was founded in 1994 by Howard Schiffer, a natural products industry veteran. Schiffer wanted to use his knowledge and industry connections to help children throughout the world. Today, Vitamin Angels reaches more than 20 million children in over 40 countries.  By connecting children under five with vital nutrients like vitamin A, they are very literally improving the lives of children every day. One vitamin A capsule taken every six months can prevent blindness and reduce the mortality rate of children under five by 23 percent.


Whole Foods Market’s current podcast, Viva Vitamin Angels, shares the story of Vitamin Angels. To help raise awareness, Whole Foods Market will donate $1 for each comment in response to the Viva Vitamin Angels podcast in September. Just by listening to a brief podcast and leaving a comment, you will be helping improve the life of an undernourished child. So what are you waiting for? Please head on over.

  33. I wrote, I find it great disturbing to hear that “Most children born in the developing world today will never reach their full intellectual or structural capacity from the day they are born due to the chronic malnutrition of their mothers before they were even conceived.”
