Every year in the month of July, the National Nutrition Council leads the whole nation in the celebration of 2013 Nutrition Month, and this year the focal theme is “Gutom at Malnutrisyon, Sama-sama Nating Wakasan.”
The Nutrition Month celebration aims to:
- increase awareness on hunger issues and actions to mitigate hunger;
- encourage government agencies, NGOs, private sector, civil society organizations and communities;
- contribute in addressing hunger issues; and
- advocate for stronger political action to end hunger.
The Department of Education (Deped) enjoins all schools to participate in this celebration by undertaking meaningful activities which will highlight the importance of good health and nutrition.
