EAT LOVE PLAY TALK: Resource library (open source)

16 Jan 2024



The South African-based EAT LOVE PLAY TALK Caregiver Nutrition Programme has been developed for Early Childhood Development (ECD) principals, practitioners and playgroup facilitators to engage in conversations and activities with parents and caregivers of children up to 5 years of age on the themes of:

  • healthy eating
  • building loving relationships
  • playful learning
  • language development

This light touch programme uses the "train the trainer" approach with local communities to see the sustainable development goals of both education and nutrition. Developed by the DO MORE FOUNDATION and key experts, this community-based programme packages public health messaging in an interactive and non-didactic way to empower caregivers/parents around making small habit changes and healthier nutrition choices for their young children and families. We use a train-the-trainer model to equip ECD principals with skills and knowledge to facilitate parent workshops and tackle the important topics of nutrition, attachment and stimulation.

Investment partners include the JD Group, RCL FOODS and The Mandela Rhodes Foundation Implementation partners include LIMA Rural Development, Lulamaphiko, New Beginnings, Khululeka and the Early Care Foundation
