Abstract
  • While the daily activities, including school, household economic activities, and food consumption patterns of East African pastoralist kids are generally known, few quantitative studies examining the impact of these activities have been conducted. The current study sought to provide greater documentation of time allocation and food consumption patterns seen in Samburu pastoralist kids (ages 6-14 years) of northern Kenya in order to assess their daily levels of energetic intake and energetic expenditure [via heart rate & movement patterns].
