In celebration of this year’s National Nutrition Month, the Children’s Ark Preparatory School conducted a day of fun and entertainment in cognizance of children’s proper diet and nutrition. Dubbed “Healthy Diet, Make It A Habit” the festivity was held at the Don Antonio Heights Homeowner’s Association (DAHHA) Clubhouse.
Pursuant to Presidential Decree No. 491 or the Nutrition Act of the Philippines, the National Nutrition Council (NNC) leads the observance of National Nutrition Month. This annual event hinges on promoting healthy eating habits that would help reduce the incidence of overweight, obesity and non-communicable diseases among our budding schoolchildren.
This year’s agenda focuses on educating the public as to how to better distinguish healthy nourishment from unhealthy ones and, to embolden the food sector which includes farmers, producers, and distributors, and food establishments to produce and make available healthier options for everyone.
As we observe National Nutrition Month this year, TCAPS reminds all to mind what we eat. The more healthier we consume, the more we become healthy kids!
Teaching children the importance of good nutrition throughout childhood will lay the foundation for a healthier more fulfilling life.
