Yes, nutrition can be argued as an advantage. But GM foods may not be cheap which means it is still not accessible to the poor ( which negates its advantage ). Maybe it can be grown in places where not much water is available, but it also comes down to affordability of these seeds (which is patented not free) especially in poor countries .
But I would put it to you that you are only assuming that the cost would be high. Part of the http://www.goldenrice.org/" [Broken] is to provide these nutritional GM crops at an affordable price. Whilst some companies may employ unethical business practices not all of them would, in addition companies that design GM products specifically for the third world are not going to set them at unaffordable prices.
