Micronutrient malnutrition; commonly referred to as hidden hunger because the symptoms are not always visible; is characterized by chronic deficiency of essential vitamins and minerals (micronutrients) such as vitamin A, iron and zinc. In Nigeria, 30% of preschool aged children are deficient in vitamin A, while 36% of children under five years are stunted. Vitamin A deficiency (VAD) is considered a major public health problem that requires appropriate nutrition interventions. VAD causes morbidity, poor cognitive development, nutritional blindness, reduced immunity, and in some cases, death in children especially under the age of five years and poor productivity in adults.

Orange-fleshed sweetpotato (OFSP) is a special type of biofortified sweetpotato that contains high levels of beta-carotene. Beta-Carotene is an organic, red-orange pigment abundant in plants and fruits. Beta-carotene is what gives OFSP an orange color and is converted to Vitamin A in the body after consumption to provide additional nutritional benefits.

OFSP is a staple food crop in Nigeria that can serve as cheap and sustainable source of Vitamin A.
