Healthy Appetites

Description

Mothers, babies, and toddlers in Bayankhongor, Mongolia attend a cooking and nutrition class at a health center.

Malnutrition is a global problem, contributing to the deaths of about 1.5 million children a year. World Vision helps malnourished children reach a healthy weight. Staff members also train parents to prepare nutritious meals and cultivate kitchen gardens to diversify their food options.

Please pray for good healthy food for every child, beginning with mother’s milk:

Lord Jesus, Scripture tells us that You understand our physical needs. In the Gospels, You fed thousands because You knew they couldn’t get food on their own. Help hungry families access the food resources they need to survive. Move among community health workers to inspire parents to learn new, sustainable ways to improve their children’s diets. Reassure struggling parents that they can help their children grow strong.

“… You haven’t eaten anything. Now I urge you to take some food. You need it to survive. …” —Acts 27:33-34 (NIV)
