Feed the Babies Fund has been addressing the issue of food security; and specifically malnutrition; amongst orphans and vulnerable children since 1957, by providing cereal to babies and children living in the poorest areas of our Province.
We provide centres with a fortified, concentrated cereal that contains the correct ratio of vitamins, proteins and minerals required for the development of a young child.
In order for a child to experience normal growth and reach the correct developmental milestones through proper education, a balanced protein diet is essential. It is an established fact that extended periods of malnutrition results in irreparable brain damage.
In supplying cereal to centres, we adhere to a strict policy of controlling and monitoring the daily feeding of each child. Daily registers of child attendance and food consumption are maintained and monitored on a monthly basis.
Site visits are conducted by our Project staff on a regular basis.
