Jaipur : Lotus Dairy announces fortifying its milk with vitamin A and D without any change inprices.Fortification adds essential micronutrients to milk. Micro-nutrient malnutrition is common in all ages and socio-economic groups. Deficiency of micro-nutrients in food results in poor physical and mental health. 

Vitamin A and D play an important role in physical and mental development where vitamin A helps in developing good immune and also helps heart, lungs, kidneys, and other organs work properly. Vitamin D on the other hand helps in absorption of calcium keeping teeth, bones and muscles healthy.
