What is the partnership?
Started in 2018, this partnership provides a healthy supplemental food package, free of charge, to select nurseries serving children who are at nutritional risk in the UK.
The package is designed to complement existing nutrition services and reduce the prevalence of both inadequate nutrient intakes and of excessive nutrient intakes:
- Nutrients prioritised in food package: iron, zinc, vitamin E, fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin B6, and folate
- Nutrients limited in food package: saturated fat, trans-fatty acids, sodium and added sugar.
Vitamin Angels has partnered with NDNA to increase the technical capacity of day nurseries to promote good nutrition in the day nursery setting and at home.
