Treating Anemia

1996

Iron deficiency anemia is a problem that affects millions of children, especially in the developing world, resulting in extreme fatigue and weakness. University of Toronto pediatrician Dr. Stanley Zlotkin’s solution was to develop an iron supplement that comes in small sachets, like those used for sugar in coffee. One sachet added to a child’s meal ensures they have all the iron they need.

His sachets, known as Sprinkles, have helped millions of children worldwide lead normal, active lives.
