Eggs – power-packed protein snacks
This is where KELFOOD’s heart lies, in supplying this wonderful package of protein to the people who need it most. Our drive is to consistently supply eggs to the Malawian consumers and to increase annual consumption from the current 20 eggs per person to the acceptable nutritional goal of 80+ eggs per person. We aim to produce as much as 36 million eggs per month to keep Malawians fed and to contribute to this goal.

The 80 eggs per person per year goal is sufficient to sustain child development and ensure sustainable physiological growth.

The power of one egg:
One single egg contains a good portion of high quality protein, anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals. Whole eggs are among the most nutritious foods on the planet, containing a little bit of almost every nutrient you need. Omega-3 enriched and/or pastured eggs are even healthier. According to the World Health Organisation an egg is the most sustainable and acceptable source of animal protein in infant and child diets. The best news about eggs is that they need no value adding to make it a healthy meal.

In Malawi it is a necessity – most alternative protein sources are seasonal and in decline, but eggs are available throughout the year and KELFOOD’s makes sure it is consistently, affordably and practically available every day. In a controlled environment an egg can last up to 20 days.

Research on eggs and stunted children
Whether soft or hard-boiled, fried or whisked into an omelette, eggs appear to give even infants a boost. It could be a cost-effective way to prevent stunting (too short for their age) in young children, according to researchers in the journal Pediatrics.

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), 155 million children under the age of five are stunted. Most live in low- and middle-income countries and health experts have been looking at ways to tackle the issue.

Researchers set up a field experiment in the rural highlands of Ecuador and gave very young children (aged six to nine months) free eggs to eat to see if this might help.

Half of 160 youngsters who took part in the randomised trial were fed an egg a day for six months – the others were monitored for comparison.

Stunting was far less common among the egg treatment group by the end of the study – the prevalence was 47% less than in the non-egg group, even though relatively more of these egg-fed infants were considered short for their age at the start of the study.

Lead researcher Ms Iannotti said: “We were surprised by just how effective this intervention proved to be. And what’s great is it’s very affordable and accessible for populations that are especially vulnerable to hidden hunger or nutritional deficiency.”
