Fortified Snack Reduced Anemia in Rural School-Aged Children of Haiti: A Cluster-Randomized, Controlled Trial

Researchers investigated the efficacy of Vita Mamba, a fortified peanut butter snack, in reducing anemia in school-aged children in rural Haiti. The findings indicated that children were more likely to experience an increase in hemoglobin levels and a decrease in anemia when they consumed Vita Mamba. This study provides support for the integration of fortified foods with deworming in school feeding programs as an effective anemia intervention in rural settings in Haiti.
