admin 0

Every year, in the month of July, the National Nutrition Council (NNC) leads the whole nation in the celebration of 2013 Nutrition Month, purposely to disseminate nutrition messages to all Filipinos through a focal theme. For 2013, the theme is Gutom at Malnutrisyon, Sama-sama Nating Wakasan.


The Celebration aims to:
  • increase awareness on hunger issues and actions to mitigate hunger;
  • encourage government agencies, non-government organizations, private sector, civil society organizations and communities;
  • contribute in addressing hunger issues; and
  • advocate for stronger political action to end hunger.
In support of this developmental endeavor of the nutrition community to be spearheaded by the NNC, 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.

However, it is emphasized, that the "Engaged Time-on-Task" policy of the DepEd should be observed as stipulated in DepEd Order No. 9, s. 2005.

A consolidated narrative report with the pictorials on the highlights of the observance of Nutrition Month shall be prepared by the regional health personnel for submission to the NNC regional offices.
