Sprinkles are being distributed through government public healthcare clinics to pregnant women and babies aged 6-to-24 months. Sprinkles prevent anemia, a type of malnutrition, as well as rickets and other diseases. In co-operation with North Korea’s Institute of Child Nutrition, First Steps completed a two-year effectiveness/efficacy study of Sprinkles. Based on the excellent results, the Institute of Child Nutrition is eager to adopt Sprinkles as a national program.
