In November 2007, GAIN awarded US$ 280,900 to the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention to develop affordable nutrient sachets containing soy flour to improve the nutrition of children 6 months to 24 months old and raise awareness around the product through social marketing. The product is called Ying Yang Bao.
The goal of the project is to develop and assess a private public sector partnership to market low cost nutrient sachets containing soy flour to poor families.
The project is expected to improve the nutritional status of children to 6 months to 24 months old.
The project is funded from November 2007 to February 2009, but has been extended to December 2009.
Designed by Madam Chen, the nutritional supplement for infants over six months, called YingYangBao, will be distributed through an innovative social business model: impact on health and employability, in particular, are the objectives of this project. From this, in 2011, danone.communities will support NutrtiGO through an innovative partnership.
