Lesters speaks to Pontsho Pilane
South Africa’s latest Demographics and Health Survey echoes her remarks. The study,
which examined more than 11000 households across the country, found more than a
quarter of children under the age of five are stunted - their development and growth is
impaired - mostly because of poor nutrition.
The survey also found children from poorer families are more likely to be stunted than
those from wealthier families. Another study, published in the SA Medical Journal in
2016, found that stunted children are more likely to become obese as adults, as their
bodies burn less fat to survive malnutrition.
