Global childhood malnutrition is a growing problem. Millions of children die each year as a result of this condition and those who survive are often challenged with health and development problems for the rest of their lives.
Based on its expertise, NUTRILITE™ developed NUTRILITE Little Bits, a micronutrient supplement for malnourished children enhanced with plant nutrients.
The Nutrilite™ Power of 5 Campaign is designed to build awareness of childhood malnutrition, address the critical need for proper nutrition during the first 5 years of life and offer a way that everyone can help.
Our goal is to improve the nutritional value of malnourished children’s diets on a daily basis from the age of 6 months to 5 years. We encourage you to participate, advocate and become part of the big global solution.
The Power of the 5 Partnerships
The NUTRILITE Power of 5 campaign highlights the critical relationships, necessary to support the nutritional, physical and emotional health of children. The first essential relationship is between mother and child. Non-governmental Organizations (NGOs) play an important role in supporting both. Amway and NUTRILITE have strong partnerships with NGOs like CARE who provide other key benefits to children like food and education. The 5th critical partnership is between children and you, supporting them to receive NUTRILITE Little Bits.

In 2014, the launch year of the campaign, people all around the world collected handprints to raise awareness of global childhood malnutrition. Amway donated for each handprint $1 to CARE and the collage of more than 75.000 handprints led to the Guinness World Record for the biggest collage of handprints (260,872 handprints have been collected in total).
