The singer has joined a campaign to end child malnutrition
Singer Emma Bunton has joined a UNICEF campaign to end child malnutrition ahead of Mother’s Day on Sunday.
She is asking UK mums to help children round the world have the best start in life by supporting the campaign here.
For the campaign she shared her most magical moment in her children’s first 1,000 days of life, as the first 1,000 days are the critical window of opportunity for children to get the right nutrients they need to develop properly.
However, around the world a staggering one in four children are not getting the nourishing food they need in order to grow up healthy and reach their potential in this critical period.
Bunton said: ‘It’s so shocking that one in four children around the world are not getting the right nutrients they need to grow up healthy and strong in their first 1,000 days of life.
‘When my boys were toddlers I’d sit here and sing ‘You are my sunshine’ to them while the light streamed in on us. When they reached the stage where they could start singing along it really was a magical moment and one I’ll always remember in those first important 1,000 days.
‘Every mother should be able to enjoy these precious moments in their child’s life and development. So, please, this Mother’s Day join me and go to the UNICEF UK website to help children everywhere.’
Mums visiting the website will learn how they can help another child for a £3 donation by buying sprinklers to ensure children get the vitamins and nutrients they need to grow up healthy.
