6/31/2013 - The overall undertaking of our Daycare Center for the month of July 2013 was focused on putting an end to Hunger and Malnutrition. Among the listed activities was the annual parade around the community in promoting the importance of nutrition. There was also the competition on  different costumes made from various types of plants which were  good for the  health and  the  Poster Making Contest  by Mother and Child teams depicting the theme.

Then our  City Nutritionist was  in charged of the preparation of menus for a simple after program party consisting of  nutritious food good for our children.  Mothers were also shown on how they can plant  nutritious vegetables even if they have no big yards.  In raising these vegetables, mal nourished children will now  have the chance to eat these good home grown  food.

To close this very important activity, Punong Barangay Vic Baluyot Jr was requested to leave a message not just  to the young children more so,  to the parents. He stressed the importance educating the parents in resolving Hunger and Malnutrition at this day and age. He said that  family planning  together with the  National Government's programs such as :  1. Philippine Plan of Action for Nutrisyon (PPAN);  2. Agri Pinoy para sa Self Suficient  thru local Production of food ; 3. Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program(4P’s) will help eradicate this  nutrition problem.
