Introduction to Nourish the Children


Nourish the Children (NTC) is a for-profit initiative that applies business principles to address the problem of childhood hunger in a sustainable manner. The program begins with a highly nutritious food developed by Nu Skin’s nutritional scientists, known as VitaMeal. The company’s sales leaders, customers and employees can purchase VitaMeal and choose to donate the food to a third-party nonprofit organization that specializes in distributing relief to those suffering from malnutrition and famine. Since 2002, Nu Skin and its sales leaders, customers and employees have donated about 700 million meals to malnourished children around the world. As is the case with other Nu Skin products, distributors are paid commissions and Nu Skin earns a profit margin from each sale of VitaMeal, which is lower than the profit margin on virtually all of Nu Skin’s other products.


  • Nu Skin is a registered company of the New York Stock Exchange and because they created the Nourish The Children initiative and they are a for-profit company, they cannot register a non-profit without it hindering their business and ours in some way financially. 

  • The majority of the profits from the VitaMeal purchases goes back into the countries we support with Nourish The Children in order to pay VitaMeal factory workers, VitaMeal farm workers, build schools, educate the community on disease prevention as well as build and maintain clean water sources and water filtration systems. 


  • The VitaMeal is a scientifically formulated meal that does not only feed the child, but targets the malnourishment in the child, VitaMeal is sold in bags and one bag is 30 meals so essentially one bag feeds one child for 30 days and ensures that child has at least one warm and nutritious meal a day.
