In 2011 and 2012, MIET AFRICA partnered with SASA and the KZN Department of Education’s Nutrition and Curriculum Directors to develop a nutrition resource pack targeting Grades R-6 teachers and learners, especially those in schools in disadvantaged and under-resourced communities.
- The intervention included:
Developing a draft nutrition resource pack for teachers and learners to develop nutrition knowledge and improve food consumption habits
Testing and evaluating the resource pack using a teacher focus group approach
Refining and finalizing the nutrition resource pack based on the focus group recommendations
The pack included TEACHING NUTRITION in the Foundation and Intermediate Phases, a resource book for teachers that includes nutrition information and CAPS-compliant learner activities as part of the Life Skills (Grade R–6) curricula.
