Future Fortified is a fresh, new form of philanthropy, centered on providing long-term, lasting impact by providing for the nutritional needs of women and children through home nutrition packets. These simple and inexpensive nutrient packets cost just pennies a day and are packed with a blend of micro plus macro nutrients which are then sprinkled on top of a child’s meal a several times a week. At approximately 3 cents per packet, this is an easy way to secure the good health of babies, especially during the critical first 1000 day of their lives.
Future Fortified also works to educate families about the incredible importance of nutrition as well as crucial vitamins and minerals. Their goal is to supply a nutrition packet with the local nutritional needs as well as local consumer requirements. To do this, they make use of local companies to make their nutrition packs which helps keep the expense down and ensures a continuous supply.
