About the campaign

Girls all around the world have big dreams. They dream of being doctors and athletes. They dream of being pilots and engineers. They dream of being prime ministers and presidents.

These dreams are achievable. But for many, poor nutrition is a barrier too high to overcome. Millions of girls do not get the essential vitamins and minerals they need in their diets. The lack of proper nutrition affects both their mental and physical development.

Nutrition International developed the “With Good Nutrition She’ll Grow Into It” campaign to draw attention to the importance of good nutrition in unlocking a girl’s potential and helping her to grow, learn, earn and lead.

Good nutrition is the foundation.

A girl who is healthy is in a position to take control of her own life and inspire others to do the same. She can take advantage of every opportunity presented to her and become the person she wants to be, and play the role she wants to play in her community.

With good nutrition, her future won’t just be something she dreams about. With good nutrition, she’ll grow into it.
