Ghanaian scientists develop a sweet potato to alleviate malnutrition

Scientists in Ghana have been developing a type of sweet potato they believe can help alleviate child malnutrition. The orange-fleshed sweet potato has high levels of Vitamin A, which assists in child development.
According to UNICEF, one in four children in Ghana suffers from malnutrition-related health problems.
But for this 'wonder-root' to catch on, farmers need grow it, and consumers have to buy it.
