PSWDO launches feeding program
The Provincial Social Welfare Development Office (PSWDO) launched “Ang Batang Malusog, Kinabukasan…AYOS!,” a supplementary feeding program supported by the Provincial Nutrition Council – Technical Working Group (PNC-TWG), on April 4 at Barangay Baretbet, Bagabag.
Milagros Sicat of the PSWDO and a member of PNC-TWG said that the supplementary feeding is programmed for 120 feeding days and to be monitored by the Barangay Nutrition Committee. “This is not only about feeding but more on nutrition programs supported by the provincial and municipal government. We may also extend the number of days for this program,” Sicat said.
The feeding program was also launched in Barangay Bonfal Proper on March 27. “We are still looking for other nutritionally depressed barangays where we can also conduct the program,” Sicat added.
Provincial Nutrition Officer Luzviminda Ragpa said, “We need to conduct this feeding program to improve the nutritional status of the malnourished children. These children need additional supplements. Even how eager we are to do this program, nothing will happen if there are no support and cooperation from the parents.”
Ma. Cristina Opeña (also a PNC-TWG member), distributed the donated vegetable seeds from the Office of the Provincial Agriculturist to the families to plant in their backyards as another source of nutritionally-rich food. #bg
