Working Together to Keep Kids Healthy
It is no secret that children need a lot of vitamins and nutrients, especially at a young age, to support their growth and development.
But did you know that many times, families living in low-income households in the U.S. have to choose between paying monthly bills or buying nutritious food and drinks for their children?
That is a harsh reality many more parents are facing during the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the USDA, The National School Lunch Program provided low-cost or free lunches to 29.4 million children daily. For more than a year, children have been fluctuating between virtual and in-person lessons, causing many living in low-income households to miss these very important nutritious resources. The lack of resources ultimately affects a child’s performance in the classroom. The proper vitamins and nutrients help maintain energy throughout the day, which is vital for school-age children. They can better concentrate in class and participate in physical activities without potential exhaustion.
Through their partnership, the organizations plan to reach school-aged children across U.S. by distributing nearly 9,000 bottles of KidsLuv’s zero sugar vitamin packed beverage to Title I school districts and community partners who serve families who are struggling through the pandemic.
A single serving of the KidsLuv beverage will provide students with Vitamin A, B, C, D and E, as well as calcium and potassium.
Feed the Children, a leading international anti-hunger organization, is dedicated to ensuring children receive the much-needed nutrients required for proper development. That’s why it partners with organizations and communities in the U.S. and in nine countries around the world with the goal of providing children with nutritious food, vitamins, supplements, and the resources needed to obtain these important items.
When we work TOGETHER, we can help children who need our help now more than ever before!
