Inadequate intake of essential vitamins and minerals impacts 2 billion people worldwide1, adversely affecting socio-economic potential by causing long-term effects on health, learning ability and productivity.
Nutrition lies at the heart of the Sustainable Development Goals, with every $1 invested in nutrition results in $16 worth of returns2.
