Lastly Ayesha Seedat joined me to speak about the Tuckshop programme of the Heart and Stroke Foundation of South Africa. According to Ayesha Seedat a child’s nutritional needs are often overlooked and underplayed by both parents and the school system, resulting in common problems such as behavioural disorders and childhood obesity. 17% of South African children between the ages of 1-9 years of age are overweight. At the same time as many as 19% of children are stunted because of insufficient food intake.
Teaching a child about food groups and the importance of good nutrition in the classroom is the best defence against poor eating habits. For more details visit
