10 Million Stronger: Support Flintstones Vitamins in its efforts to help children – It’s easy!

 

Did you know that millions of children under 5 years old worldwide suffer from vitamin A deficiency? Sadly, this vitamin A Deficiency is an underlying cause of childhood mortality and blindness around the world.

For just 25 cents, one child can be treated for 1 year. Incredible. And so simple.

25 cents really can save a life.

That’s why Bayer HealthCare, the maker of Flintstones Vitamins, a trusted brand of multivitamins for generations, is kicking off its 10 Million Stronger campaign with a goal of delivering vitamin A to 10 million children around the world. A cost-effective dose of vitamin A every six months can prevent blindness and reduce the childhood mortality rate of the at risk population by approximately 24 percent in at-risk populations.

We’re so lucky that we can afford the nutrients our children need to grow and develop. Every morning after breakfast when I give Kenzie and Kyle their Flintstones vitamin, it honestly takes me back to my own childhood as I remember my own Mom going through the same routine with me.

Flintstones Vitamins are available in 10 different chewable and gummy formulas, but I profess that every day my kids argue over who gets the yummy “grape” flavored vitamin and I laugh telling them that was and is still my favorite flavor too!

I’m thrilled to see that Flintstones Vitamins is donating resources and funds to raise awareness about this crucial and critical vitamin A deficiency. How can you help?
