"There is nothing more important than the children, and this program [Vitamin Relief USA-Children First] is the kind of good news about supplements that America needs to see and hear.

Vitamin Relief USAs National Initiative provides an opportunity to make a difference in lowering the enormous economic and social costs of malnutrition. Nutritional problems just cannot be solved through the efforts of assistance programs aimed at providing foods to increase calorie consumption. Essential nutrients are not present in many foods, and people do not have a natural hunger for them. Through the efforts of Vitamin Relief USAs National Initiative, we can promote health, reduce illness, and provide good nutrition to those who are in need.
