Food & Nutrition

 

Hunger and the lack of adequate nutrition affect children in many ways.  The saying, "you can't teach a hungry child" is one aspect that many of us are familiar with. Lack of a regular balanced diet affects the health and development of children; with or without the added factor of having a chronic illness (such as being HIV+) or needing to be on medicines long term (like ARVs). 



Food relief, in the form of food parcels is one response to this.  'Soup kitchens' and school feeding schemes are others. Longer term, more sustainable responses include nutritional training, gardening and other food related income generating projects.
