The provision of micronutrients is ranked as one of the most cost-effective interventions for economic  development according to the 2012 Copenhagen Consensus. Provision of micronutrients to specific target groups has been facilitated by the development of micronutrient powders (MNP) that can be readily added to semi-solid foods in the home or at point-of-use.a With the current prices, the product cost for one child  receiving 180 sachets of MNP in one year is 4.50 USD. The programming cost, based on existing programmes in Kenya and Rwanda, adds another 4 to 5 USD per child per year.b MNP contains 15 vitamins and minerals that are essential for a child’s development and survival. MNP improves the quality of the typically plant-source
based diet of young children, who have very high micronutrient needs, and typically is accompanied by key messages to support optimal infant and young child feeding practices.
