Nutrition Month Theme 2018 (Philippines)

The Nutrition Month theme in 2018 is "Ugaliing magtanim, Sapat na nutrisyon aanihin!" according to the National Nutrition Council (NNC) of the Philippines.

This theme focuses on food production at home through the family's own garden. This is the food planted at home (inside our outside your home), in your little backyard or farm.
Common characteristics of food garden are:
  1. located at home
  2. has different varieties of plants
  3. serves as supplemental rather than a main source of family's food consumption or income
  4. mostly small areas
  5. very easy to start

The Nutrition Month Theme 2018 aims to improve the healthy food consumption of Filipinos, food security or to be self-sufficient as possible with backyard gardening.

Having food gardens can help improve the family as well as the community's food security. If you have plenty of vegetables or fruit crops, you can even sell some of them to earn additional income for the family.
