Malnourished children are missing essential nutrients in their diets, which can hinder brain, bone, and immune system development. Most humanitarian food consists mainly of grain, such as corn, but may lack other essential nutrients necessary for healthy growth. VitaMeal was formulated by Nu Skin’s nutritional scientists to determine the ingredients and ratios that are best suited for a malnourished child. The result is a product that includes highly effective levels of essential vitamins and minerals.
VitaMeal is vegetarian and non-dairy and allows for the easy addition of ingredients to fit every taste and culture.
VitaMeal donations are generally distributed through school programs, motivating parents living in poverty to send their children—especially girls—to school for a free meal, rather than keeping them home to work. The World Bank has recognized that “there is no investment more effective for achieving development goals than educating girls.”

This bonus is included in the price of the food and allows sales leaders to invest their time and resources to encourage others to join the cause against malnutrition.
