BENEFITS OF VITAMIN A
Since vitamin A is crucial for healthy eyes, children who suffer from vitamin A deficiency may have compromised vision or go completely blind
Vitamin A deficient children are short for their age, which is a sign of permanently stunted growth throughout life.
A child's weakened immune system is more susceptible to infectious diseases like measles and diarrhea. Lack of clean water, sanitation, and hygiene also increase a child's risk of illness-resulting in death.
Malnutrition is the #1 cause of preventable child deaths.
DO YOU KNOW THE IMPORTANCE OF VITAMIN A?
Our bodies rely on vitamin A for many purposes, all of which are essential for day-to-day activities and long-term health. When a child lacks this nutrient during the early stages of development, they can get sick, experience stunted growth, go blind and even die.
Some nutrients, like vitamin A, are not produced by the body naturally. Families with children in developing countries who are struggling with food insecurity are most at risk, because purchasing or growing vitamin A-rich foods isn't always possible.
