Nutrition for Ocosito 10 Meals
Required to Fulfill Village Needs
Families in Ocosito are missing out on life-sustaining nutrients in their daily diet. This product enhances the cognitive capacity and reduces ongoing health issues.
WHAT IS THE PRODUCT?
Your contribution provides 10 vitamin and calorie-packed meals for a family. The meal is made of a rice and bean mixture similar to the normal diet of the area and includes a fortified vitamin pack. During our field tests in the villages, children and adults both loved it!
WHAT DOES IT SOLVE?
Consistently getting proper nutrition leads to overall improved health. Proper nutrition allows adults to focus on setting up their family for success by providing for their families and saving money on medication to treat nutrition-related illness. Proper nutrition helps all children excel in their education and prepare for a successful future.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT
No matter the age, proper nutrition is important for a healthy and successful life. No one expects students to do well in school if they are hungry or lethargic, and the same goes for the adults trying to provide for their families. A human’s basic life needs must be met before they can move forward out of poverty.
LEVEL OF SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT
Meeting nutritional needs is in the first stage of human development and essential in order to move forward with permanently solving the problems in these villages.
WHERE IS IT SOURCED?
Due to a lack of available resources in Guatemala, the meals and vitamin packs are made in the United States of America and imported at this time.
