NOURISH THE CHILDREN
NOURISH THE CHILDREN (NTC) IS AN INITIATIVE THAT APPLIES BUSINESS PRINCIPLES TO ADDRESS THE PROBLEM OF CHILDHOOD HUNGER IN A SUSTAINABLE MANNER.
The program begins with a highly nutritious food developed by Nu Skin's nutritional scientists, known as VitaMeal. The company's sales leaders, customers and employees can purchase and donate VitaMeal to a third-party nonprofit organization that specializes in distributing relief to those suffering from malnutrition and famine. Since 2002, Nu Skin has donated more than 600 million meals to malnourished children around the world. As is the case with other Nu Skin products, distributors are paid commissions and Nu Skin earns a profit margin from each sale of VitaMeal, which is lower than the profit margin on virtually all of Nu Skin's other products. By applying business principles and making the purchase of VitaMeal commissionable, it yields a program that is more likely to be sustainable.
WHY NOURISH THE CHILDREN?
With millions of children dying each year from malnutrition-related causes, it is clear that humanitarian efforts alone are not sufficient to address this global problem. But you have the power to help nourish the 120,000 children around the world every day who are impacted by malnutrition every time you choose to purchase and donate VitaMeal. And you know your donation will be supported with matching donations that help create opportunities to improve lives through education, jobs and teaching self-sufficiency.
You can truly make a difference for these children when you purchase and donate a VitaMeal each month and encourage a friend to do the same.
Most humanitarian food consists mainly of grain, such as corn, but may lack other essential nutrients necessary for healthy development. As part of the overall development of VitaMeal, Nu Skin’s nutritional scientists determined the ingredients and ratios that are well-suited for a malnourished child. VitaMeal offers highly effective levels of essential vitamins and minerals, and key ingredients include:
- A balance of carbohydrates, protein, fat and fiber
- Essential fatty acids required for normal brain development, skin health and immune defense
- Electrolytes necessary for maintaining normal fluid balance and muscle function
- Vitamin A, which is essential for normal sight and immune functions
- Bone nutrients for normal growth and skeletal development
VitaMeal is vegetarian and non-dairy and allows for the easy addition of ingredients to fit every taste and culture. Each VitaMeal package contains 30 child-sized meals or enough food to provide a child with one nutritious meal each day for a month.
WHY FLAWLESS SKINCARE SOLUTIONS?
Trust us when we say our mission is to help you appear as good as you feel. VitaMeal is changing the lives of children. The care you put into your skin is as vitally important as the care you give to your body. In fact, flawless skin and nourished bodies are intertwined. When the body is well-nourished, the skin reaps the benefits. Through our initiative with Nourish the Children, we're striving to redefine the livelihood of malnourished children every day.
