Happy Child Foundation

Feeding malnourished orphans and vulnerable children The Happy Child Foundation is a non-profit foundation set up to feed hungry pre-school children in the poorest townships of Cape Town.

Founded in 2008, the Foundation began by feeding a small number of children with a nutrient dense crunchie bar – The Happy Bar. The Happy Bar was developed specifically for the Happy Child Foundation by a doctor with a special interest in paediatric nutrition and contains most of the protein, vitamins, minerals and healthy oils a growing child needs for one day. The Foundation currently Feeds 135 children per day in three pre-schools and two orphanages in Khayaletsha

General information

Known as the silent hunger, shockingly, malnutrition affects one in ten South African children. Today more than 1.5 million children suffer the effects of malnutrition – impaired growth, health and development, resulting in increased mortality rates. In 2000 65% of children aged 1 – 5 years who died in South Africa died from complications of diseases that could have been prevented by adequate nutrition. These include childhood illnesses such as measles, diarrhea, sepsis and meningitis, pneumonia and HIV/AIDS. Well-nourished children in developed countries rarely die from these conditions. Yet almost two thirds of early childhood deaths in South Africa are caused by treatable and often preventable conditions. South Africa is one of the only 12 countries currently not on track to meet the Millennium Development Goal to reduce under-five mortality. Currently 7.3% of children in South Africa die before the age of 5 years old.
