To address micronutrient deficiencies, we wish to provide healthy food to the population such that they would naturally be able to consume balanced diets, thus preventing any nutrient deficiences. Food would be organically grown, largely unprocessed thus preserving nutrients. It would include a variety of local and seasonal fruits and vegetables, millets and a variety of indegeous grains that are easy, cheap to grow and provide the required nutrients for population within that region. Thus, micronutrients would be available to all in their natural forms as a result of improved food production and dietary patterns.
