Feeding Programme – ECD & ASC

neutrition-icon

Nutrition Programme

Pebbles provides nutritionally balanced breakfast and lunch meals for the 500 children who attend our farm ECD centres and 300 children who attend our ASC centres. We ensure that 800 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. Growth monitoring visits are scheduled annually where we look at growth progress of all ECD learners according to their individual Road to Health cards. 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 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.
