(A nutrition program)
Malnutrition impedes the child’s process of learning and widely impairs a child’s brain development, thereby resulting to developmental delays. A study reports that Malnutrition negatively effects brain development causing delays in motor and cognitive development, such as:
- Attention deficit disorder
- Impaired school performance
- Decreased IQ scores
- Memory deficiency
- Learning disabilities
- Reduced social skills
- Reduced language development
- Reduced problem-solving abilities
As a small initiative, Batang Pinangga aims to respond to the problem of malnutrition among school children through the Batang Busog project.
It is a nutrition program that aims to provide school children an encouragement to go to school every day, and a chance to have at least one full meal in a day.
A child has a chance to learn more, explore, and play when she/he is less hungry.
The project is in line with the vision-mission of the foundation, that every child must be a beloved child. Therefore, Batang Busog (a nourished child) is a result of being batang pinangga (a beloved child).
