Prenatal Supplementation

The first 1,000 days of a child’s life are the most crucial.

From conception to their second birthday, a child’s future cognitive and physical development are determined by nutrition. Maternal malnutrition while pregnant and breastfeeding can result in stunting, nutritional deficiencies, and lifelong health complications for her child.

MFK’s supplemental food Plumpy’Doz prevents and treats malnutrition in mothers and improves child nutritional and developmental outcomes. Mothers in MFK’s prenatal program learn about the benefits of breastfeeding and which foods have the best nutritional value.

To date, more than 73,000 mothers and infants have participated in MFK’s prenatal supplementation program.
