A Fish In Every Pot

A Fish in Every Pot

By Dr. Gavin Armstrong, President & CEO of Lucky Iron Fish—

Iron deficiency is the most common and widespread nutritional disorder in the world, affecting two billion people – that’s more than 30% of the world’s population. This issue most frequently affects women, and particularly those in developing countries. As much a every second pregnant woman in developing countries, and about 40% of preschool children in developing countries, are estimated to be anemic, with anemia contributing to 20% of all maternal deaths.

An innovative solution to a global epidemic

This global issue inspired us to create the Lucky Iron Fish: a simple health innovation formulated to combat iron deficiency. Lucky Iron Fish is a piece of natural ferrous iron, shaped like a smiling fish (a symbol of luck in Cambodia), that’s specially formulated to release a safe level of iron when cooking nutritious meals. Through our Buy-One-Give-One model, for every Lucky Iron Fish purchased, a fish is given to a family in need around the world for free. One Lucky Iron Fish can actually provide an entire family with a significant level of their iron intake for up to 5 years.

From athletes to vegans: Suitable for those at risk of iron deficiency

Whether an athlete, avid cook, nutrition-conscious mom, vegetarian or vegan, or all of the above, our small but mighty fish makes a great gift for those concerned about iron deficiency. Not to mention, this gift keeps giving by putting a fish in the pot of a family in Asia, India, Sub-Saharan Africa, South America, and other communities in need in the developing and developed world. We’re on a mission to put a fish in every pot!
