Foster Care Nutrition
Young children are so busy growing and developing that it can sometimes be hard to make sure that their bodies receive adequate nutrition.
LWB supplies boxes of fortified cereal to foster care children under the age of 24 months to help ensure that they receive the best nutrition available. The cereal is fortified with iron, an important nutrient for proper brain development; with vitamin D and calcium, essential for strong bone formation; and other vitamins needed for proper development.
As well as serving as a good source of nutrients, cereal provides babies with the opportunity to learn to eat solid foods. The cereal is delivered monthly by our local China foster care managers.
You can make a difference in a child’s life by making a one-time or monthly donation in any amount to this project. A month’s supply of cereal costs $15 per child. Donors will receive monthly updates and photos of the children helped.
