Uncategorized
HarvestPlus has launched the Iron Works campaign, timed around International Women's Day 2019, to raise awareness about #irondeficiency and how we are addressing it through nutritious biofortified foods in close collaboration with CGIAR centers, NARS, and many other partners.  Iron-biofortified crops are a practical, food-based option for resource-poor families and rural communities who rely on staple crops for much of their diet. For example, young children and non-pregnant, non-lactating women can get up to 80 percent of their daily average iron requirement by eating foods made with iron beans or iron pearl millet as a significant portion of their diet.  Iron biofortification is helping rural families reach their cognitive and physical potential--one meal at a time.
