Nutrition programmes

Early Childhood Development (ECD) Feeding Programme

Pebbles provides nutritionally balanced breakfast and lunch meals for the 400 children who attend our farm ECD centres and 300 children who attend our ASC centres. We ensure that 700 of our children are receiving the essential nutrients they need to grow and learn.

Growth And Wellness Monitoring

Our children’s growth and development is tracked through a partnership between the nutrion programme and our health professionals at the Pebbles Owethu Clinic. Developmental monitoring visits are scheduled every 6 months where we look at any developmental delays and growth chart progress. Dietary interventions are then put into place for those learners who are not following their growth charts or are found to be underweight, overweight or stunted. This includes providing supplements and also providing additional nutritional training and assistance to the parents of the children. Research has shown that proper nutrition plays an important role in the cognitive development of the young child, which makes the nutrition programme a vital aspect of our work.
