It is a fact that all people need food and cannot live long without eating enough of it. It is
this fact that the researcher has decided to establish the Impact on Health and Nutrition
on the Performance of Pre-Primary School in Thegu location Kieni East District; the
research is based on finding out the relationship that exist between feeding and the
academic performance of the ECE children.

and one sub-district hospital Naromoru_Health Centre.

component of life. He compared the rich and the poor countries in terms of food output.

disadvantages of good nutrit1on in the early ages, the researcher has also gone through

In literature review, the researcher's viewed the extent to which health and nutrition
affects performance of the ECE children m the pre-primary education.

the area of study and the way forward to overcome the socio-economic problems faced
by these parents.
Questionnaires to reach six schools out of the 25 schools in the locations were used. The
researcher used random sampling whereby the population covered was about 30%.

are often unbalanced diet this gives rise to acute malnutrition. It is therefore felt that the
Government should avail feeding programmes as done in other districts. The parents
should also change their attitude and deviate from the main cash crop which is maize and
plant food crops such as sorghum, groundnuts, cassava and other food crops which are
rich in proteins and vitamins.
