    • Show Malnutrition Your Green Tongue
    • Malnutrition is the number one problem 101 million children under the age of 5 years are underweight 20 million children were born with low birth weight in 2011 60 – 80 % of neonatal deaths occur among low birth weight babies 165 million children under the age of 5 years are stunted
    • India carries 38% of the global burden of stunted children
    • « Famines lay waste to countries; bad diets cripple them silently » Source: UNICEF
    • A promising weapon: Spirulina B1, B2, B6 and B12 Vitamins Essential Fatty Acids Vitamin A Complete Protein Iron Spirulina delivers essential key nutrients: a daily dose of 1 to 3 grams over a period of 3 months can cure a child below 5 years of malnutrition
    • A promising weapon: Spirulina Vitamin A: Vision, nervous system, immune system Iron: Brain development Spirulina contains all 20 aminoacids like Tryptophan: immune system, antiviral Source: UNICEF
    • How can we colour one million tongues green and beyond? 92% of mothers in India do not know about malnutrition – but no mother – no matter how poor and educated or not she is – will allow her child to be malnourished A double strategy, based on the above hypothesis • Nutrition Campaign: overcoming the existing malnutrition, ignorance and bring behaviour change to the villages. • Market Development Program: setting up BOP distribution network and bringing healthy spirulina products to remote areas.
    • Nutrition campaign • Food supplementation with spirulina products (tablets, candies, jellies, chikkies) during 90 days, and monthly weighing sessions • Mobile teams will roll out the campaign, and move from village to village to conduct PD hearth sessions
    • Impact of nutrition campaign
    • Social market development program • Attractive, new and aspirational spirulina products for children • Existing sales channels: local shops will sell spirulina products and create an additional income
    • One health approach: clinical studies and other support UN called for action in 2005 to encourage spirulina production and usage • Where is this action? Political barrier at the level of institutions • Micronutrients key to address malnutrition: artificial and imported or natural and local? • So many studies proof power of spirulina – why this reluctance of implementing spirulina in programs to combat malnutrition?
    • Joining hands for an efficient dissemination of Spirulina Let us overcome these obstacles and join hands! First step, contact me to discuss further. shaeny@antenna.ch
