NIH study discusses nutrition supplement for pregnant women in resource poor settings

An NIH-funded study discusses how an inexpensive daily nutrition supplement made of dried skimmed milk, soybean and peanut extract, can improve the growth of a fetus, by providing essential vitamins and minerals to pregnant women in low resource settings. The supplement was distributed to women in rural areas of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Guatemala, India and Pakistan and findings indicated that those taking the supplement were less likely to have a stunted or small infant at birth.
