What We Do


Almost half of all childhood deaths globally are related to malnutrition. The diet of the poorer population is high in carbohydrates and low in protein leading to stunting, suboptimal neurological and intellectual development and inability to repair tissue.

Proteins are the building blocks of all cells and are critical for production of antibodies, hormones, enzymes and even connective tissue. It helps store amino acids, helps in muscle movement, and is the vehicle to transport substances within the body. Adding protein is always beneficial to a substandard diet at any age.

Research has proved time and again that there is a very strong relationship between Health, Nutrition and Education and a lack in any one field affects the other two factors. In our country we have a number of organisations working among children and their focus exclusively is on Education or Health, with little or no attention being paid to the nutrition of the child.

The Happy Bar

Our Happy Bar delivers the same amount of protein as one egg to a child, and perhaps even greater yet, a feeling of love… and love makes you happy!

Because many of these children have never received a gift, we wrap each bar with love and deliver a smile through our bubbly ostrich friend, Boing.

As per a UNICEF/WHO/World Bank 2023 Report :-

* affects 148.1 million children under 5 (52% of the children are in Asia).

Wasting** affects 45 million children under 5 (70% of the children are in South Asia).

Overweight** affects 37 million children under 5 (48% of the children are in South Asia).

* Stunting refers to a child who is too short for his or her age. Stunting is the failure to grow both physically and cognitively and is the result of chronic or recurrent malnutrition. The devastating effects of stunting can last a lifetime.

** Overweight refers to a child who is too heavy for his or her height. This form of malnutrition results from expending too few calories for the amount consumed from food and drinks and increases the risk of noncommunicable diseases later in life.

*** Wasting refers to a child who is too thin for his or her height. Wasting, or acute malnutrition, is the result of recent rapid weight loss or the failure to gain weight. A child who is moderately or severely wasted has an increased risk of death, but treatment is possible.

Globally, 1 in 5 deaths among children under the age of 5 is attributed to severe wasting.

Poor nutrition during the first 1,000 days of a child’s life can lead to stunted growth, which is associated with impaired cognitive abilities and reduced school performance. Diets high in carbohydrates and low in proteins are common among poorer populations worldwide.

Proteins are essential for the development of all cells. They help a child produce enzymes and hormones, and are crucial for building muscle, skin, and bones.

Our Causes

Children With cancer, hiv and other severe illnesses

We provide protein-rich Happy Bars to children battling cancer, HIV, and other severe illnesses. Our nutritious Happy Bars are specially designed to meet the dietary needs of young patients, helping to sustain their strength and resilience during treatment. By delivering all-important protein and vitamins, we aim to bring a small but significant comfort to these brave children, supporting their health and well-being during their most challenging times.

Abandoned Children & Children in Orphanages

We are committed to aiding abandoned children and those living in orphanages by providing them with protein-rich Happy Bars. These nutritious snacks are designed to fill crucial dietary gaps and support the health and development of these vulnerable young individuals. By delivering these essential bars, we aim to offer not just nourishment, but also a symbol of hope and care, reinforcing our commitment to improving the lives of children in need.


We focus on providing Happy Bars to children attending public schools and institutions that are underfunded. These schools often struggle with limited resources, which can affect the quality of education and nutrition the students receive. By supplying these nutritious snacks, we aim to support the health and learning capabilities of these children, helping to level the playing field and ensure they have the energy and focus needed to succeed in their studies.

Children in Slums

Children living in slums face numerous challenges, from inadequate housing and sanitation to limited access to healthcare and education. These conditions can significantly hinder their development and overall well-being. Happy Bar Nutrition focuses on providing these children with  our nutritious protein-rich Happy Bar. By addressing this critical need, we aim to improve their chances for a better future and help them rise above the difficult circumstances they face daily.

Year 2023

Happy Bar Nutrition Inc has donated over 1.8 million Happy Bars to undernourished children and elderly in poverty since 2014.

In 2023, we supported ~3,000 children & 100 adults in 29 locations/campaigns covering children in 1 leprosy program, 4 HIV/AIDS orphanages, 10 schools for the disadvantaged, 11 cancer and special needs wards for children, and  several pre-school & kindergarten child care programs for the underprivileged. 

Our goal for 2024 is to donate 500,000 bars.
