NUTRITION MONTH 2014: Kalamidad Paghandaan, Gutom at Malnutrisyon Agapan

Leave a comment

Based on the Food and Nutrition Research Institute (FRNI) survey of 2011, malnutrition among Filipino kids is still widespread. It showed that two out of 10 children from 0 to 47 months old were born with low birth weight. The research verified that geographic location is a factor affecting children’s health. In the Philippines, the most number of malnourished children are those from Visayas and Mindanao.

The barangays — being the smallest unit of government –would do well in setting nutrition as a priority in their annual budget and by taking actions to create a well-informed citizenry.

For this reason, we have the National Nutrition Month which aims to disseminate nutrition related messages to all Filipinos. This year’s theme titled “Kalamidad Paghandaan, Gutom at Malnutrisyon Agapan,” is intent in promoting the following:

  • Interventions to address nutritional needs in emergencies and disasters
  • Mobilize responders particularly the local nutrition clusters and stakeholders
  • Increase awareness among families and individuals on coping and resiliency strategies

The Children’s Ark Preparatory School is committed in bolstering children’s knowledge and awareness of food and nutrition. This year, the school observed Nutrition Month with yet another fun-filled festivity.
