GuardianWitness - My daughter enjoying Milky Moments by Ellie Stonely.
I love this book as does my just turned 2 year old. She pulls it off the shelf all the time to read and calls it the booboo book because I guess it feature a lot of it. The book so beautifully describes the breastfeeding journey from newborn to not so newborn;-). I love that it make feeding an older child look so normal and natural. The drawings are so beautiful and full of little detail and my daughter loves pointing out all the babies and cookies and booboos(boobs?). It's definitely one of those children's book you'll keep forever.
An ingenious kit based around Coca-Cola crates created to save thousands of children’s lives, which will feature in the Institution’s ‘Appropriate Healthcare Technology for Developing Countries’ seminar this September, has won the product category of the Design Museum’s Designs of the Year 2013.
The film highlights the work of Simon and Jane Berry, who head ColaLife, as they probe whether a plastic kit containing zinc and the salts used to combat dehydration in stricken babies and toddlers would win acceptance by the country’s Coca-Cola bottler, South African Breweries, as well as wholesalers, small rural shopkeepers and critically the parents of sick children living in far-flung provinces.
I was so pleased to see ColaLife, a ‘kitchen table’ concept now saving children’s lives in Africa, selected by The Design Museum as Product Design of the Year 2013. ColaLife is one of the best examples of entrepreneurship (social or not) that I have seen.
Diarrhea is the second leading cause of childhood mortality worldwide. The majority of these deaths could be prevented with ORS and zinc, however weak supply chains and other factors often limit access to these essential medicines.
