Insufficient Nutrition
On a recent visit to the Antoshka orphanage a Peace Corp volunteer estimated that the babies are receiving 50% of the minimum required daily nutrients, which means that they do not receive proper nutrition.

Low Weight
Children aged 2 years typically weigh between 14 and 16 pounds (as compared with 28 pounds at the 50th percentile). Babies are bald, with skinny legs and distended tummies associated with malnutrition.

This is common due to lack of vitamin D. No milk and not enough sunshine.

Not Enough Formula
The babies receive a minimal number of baby formula feeds a day and their diet is then supplemented with sugar water mix and mashed potato. Only babies under 4 months receive baby formula.

No Meat, Dairy Or Juice
The children are fed a staple diet of bread, potato, soup and tea. Children aged 7 years interviewed at the Roschitsa Orphanage had never seen ice cream or a banana.

Babies have been misdiagnosed due to lack of thriving.
