About 53 children under the age of five die in South Africa every day — and three-quarters of them do not live to see their first birthday.
Most of these children die of preventable causes, with malnutrition a key driver of under-five mortality in South Africa. But malnutrition doesn’t only threaten children’s survival, it undermines their ability to thrive and achieve their full potential.
Last year’s South African Demographic Health Survey found that 27% of children under five were stunted. This is a sign of chronic malnutrition that compromises not only children’s growth but also their cognitive development, education and employment chances.
