The Los Baños Municipal Health Office (MHO) celebrates nutrition month this July with the theme “Gutom at Nutrisyon, Sama-sama Nating Wakasan!”
Municipal health officer Dr. Maria Cerezo said that activities her office had prepared will help impart knowledge to mothers and children about proper nutrition.
Nutrition Month in LB started with a motorcade on July 6 followed by opening ceremonies at the Municipal Covered Court.
To help address nutrition problems and encourage families to observe proper nutrition, the MHO will conduct lectures in Barangays Putho-Tuntungin, Tadlac, Baybayin, Timugan, and Bagong Silang from July 8 to July 12. The activity is for the benefit of mothers and homemakers, and will be held in the barangay halls.
Meanwhile, there will also be an awareness campaign addressed to children which will focus on eating the right kinds of food and knowing the basic food groups. It will be held on July 22 at the Lopez Elementary School in Barangay Batong Malake.
On the third week of July, the Rotary Club of Los Baños will hold a feeding program at the Los Baños Central School.
The celebration will close with a cooking contest open to all mothers to be held on July 31 at the covered court. (Earl Gio N. Manuel)
