The first six months are the "main growth phase". They require high quality protein and nutrients.

The next 6- 12 months require a reduced protein content to help prevent any growth disorders.

Now in old age, diets with a lower fat and phosphorus are needed.

Why We’re Proudly Supporting SOS Children's Village

Proudly supporting SOS Children's Village

Many areas of Africa are faced with incredible hardship, conflict, instability and are witnessing the devastating effects of climate change first hand. 

SOS Children’s Villages are working to change this. This incredible charity operates within 46 African countries in order to provide a secure family upbringing to almost 17,000 unsupported children. Not only this, but they also help provide education, healthcare, family strengthening, vocational training, and emergency relief to thousands of children and families.

It’s 266 schools, nurseries and vocational training centres provide more than 75,000 students with a quality education. Education is  an increasingly important route out of poverty for young people, so it’s vital that they are given the support they so desperately need.

We’re proud to support SOS Children’s Villages by donating sales from every pack of  Africa or  Mini Africa to help their incredibly important support service. 

So far, we’ve donated over 1 million euros.

SOS Children's Village Rutana

The donations are currently supporting the SOS Children’s Village Rutana. The primary school there is being upgraded and extended in order to be able to accept more children, giving more local young people the chance of a solid education. 

As the effects of climate change increasingly impact people and the planet, these communities will suffer the effects. Africa is already seeing the impacts of extreme weather events, including flooding, droughts and food shortages, and by giving young people the education they deserve, SOS Children’s Villages is helping to improve the lives of disadvantaged children and young people and help build them a sustainable future.
