Eggs are among the healthiest and most nutritious foods on the planet, and are packed with high-quality protein, 13 vitamins and minerals, and essential fatty acids essential to human growth and development. Recent scientific evidence shows that eggs have a significant effect in reducing stunting and micronutrient deficiencies in infants and children.
Sight and Life is working to address supply and demand side challenges to egg affordability and accessibility globally. We are devoted to increasing egg production and egg consumption around the world, and our efforts are already helping children and families access the high-quality protein and nutrition found in eggs.
Through our Eggciting Program we are making shell eggs available and affordable to low-income households through innovative poultry business models in Bangladesh, Ethiopia, India, Indonesia, Kenya and Malawi. We are also piloting new innovations in egg production, egg-based products, models, tools and approaches to address protein and micronutrient malnutrition during pregnancy, infancy, and adolescence.
