Enov'Mum™ is a Lipid-based Nutrient Supplement Small Quantity (LNS-SQ)


For pregnant and lactating women

Enov’Mum™ has been especially designed for pregnant and lactating women whose diet may provide energy, but lacks varied and nutritious food. This nutritional supplementation allows them to meet their daily requirements in main micronutrients.

Enov’Mum™ can be distributed as part of a nutrition program through blanket feeding in at-risk area alongside other interventions, such as Behavior Change Communication (BCC) activities to improve nutritional practices, as well as obstetric care.


To fortify diet during pregnancy & exclusive breastfeeding

Growing evidence points out that supplementation during pregnancy and lactation can improve maternal micronutrient status and birth outcomes. That is why it is crucial to manage the nutritional status of mothers-to-be as early as possible. Enov’Mum™ contains essential fatty acids (EFA) and the recommended daily nutrient intake (RNI) in multiple micronutrients that are often lacking in the diet. The objective is to have a positive effect on maternal nutritional status on pregnant women and children at birth and for its future growth.

Enov’Mum™ has been designed based on recommendations of the WHO, UNICEF and WFP in the guidelines “Preventing and controlling micronutrient deficiencies in populations affected by an emergency” (2006).

All nutritional studies highlight the first 1000 days of life, from conception to two years, as crucial for the development of a child.


Enov’Mum™ is not a substitute for a varied nutritious diet. 

Immediate breastfeeding after birth, exclusive during the first 6 months and recommended for at least 24 months.
