Now, here’s a mouthful: Nutrition Month celebrated last July, as per Presidential Decree 491 or the Nutrition Act of the Philippines. The 42nd Nutrition Month celebration carried this message: “Unang 1000 days ni baby pahalagahan, para sa malusog na kinabukasan”.

This year’s celebration zeroed in on educating young people to be aware of the importance of breastfeeding and encouraging everyone to eat food that provides the nutrients for fully productive, active and healthy lives. To go deeper into this celebration, pupils and students from the Integrated Basic Education Department participated in various activities. Kinder and grade 1 pupils engaged in a chirpy coloring activity contest while grades 2 and 3 were challenged to creatively select the right food to eat in the fill my plate contest.

Meanwhile, grades 4 to 6 partook in some interesting food awareness group activities like decoding secret message, word hunt and nutri-bingo challenges. Picto-scene contest was one of the highlights of the month-long celebration in the Lower Basic Education Department.

Grades 7 – 10 participated in a theme-related photography activity in which best photos from each class were selected and placed in an assortment that served as entry to the e-photo collage contest.

The celebration came with an awareness campaign through a health seminar that aims to encourage everyone to make positive decisions on consumption of healthy diets and (to) be physically active too. Furthermore, the TLE area-sponsored seminar gave audience (parents) lectures on proper caring of baby, importance of breastfeeding and cleanliness.

The students of the Integrated Basic Education Department concluded the nutrition month celebration with the healthy snacks and lunch salo-salo activity.
