CEBU, Philippines – There’s a new Micronutrient Powder (MNP) that’s good for babies aging six up to 24 months old. It contains 22 micronutrients and is now available in major drugstores. It’s called Vita Meena.

MNPs are added vitamins and minerals that can be given to the baby to increase his or her body resistance. Some of the micronutrients present in Vita Meena are Iron, Iodine, Vitamins A, B Complex, C, D, E and K, Calcium and many more.

Vita Meena is to be mixed in the baby’s food, without affecting taste. The contents of one sachet can be directly mixed with the baby’s food once daily. It is available in all major drugstores nationwide at a standard retail price of P3.00 per sachet. It is also available in boxes good for a month’s use.

Vita Meena is formulated by the Nutrition Center of the Philippines and manufactured and distributed by Philippine Nutri-foods Corporation. More information is found at www.vitameena.com. Inquiries may be addressed to [email protected]

The use of MNPs is supported by the Department of Health, the World Health Organization, the United Nations Children’s Fund and the World Food Program.
