UNICEF's baby scale is a low-tech product that aims to change the lives of malnourished infants. While many in the western world may only know of digitized baby scales, those in impoverished nations can benefit from this multi-functional and inexpensive product.

This fabric-made baby scale works to fight malnutrition before it starts and is a product that has helped countless mothers. Priced at a $38 rate, this mobile scale works as a gift to sponsored families and is designed much like a classic baby sling.

The carrier is not only convenient for moms on the go but also features a portable weighing scale that helps them to keep track of their baby's weight levels. Once aware of irregularities, impoverished parents are able to seek aid quicker rather than waiting until conditions are too late for improvement. This simple product changes lives and is an inexpensive way for UNICEF sponsors to aid others who are less fortunate.
