Nutrition Month Theme 2017: “Healthy diet, gawing habit for life!”

Primary and secondary schools nationwide will be celebrating the National Nutrition Month or “Buwan ng Nutrisyon” this coming July. According to the National Nutrition Council (NNC), the theme for this year’s celebration is “Healthy diet, gawing habit – for life!” (“Healthy diet – make it a habit for life!”).

In a statement, NNC explained that the theme aims to achieve the following objectives:

1) Promote the consumption of healthier foods and discourage the eating of unhealthy foods
2) Encourage families and individuals to eat a balanced diet with a variety of food in the right quantity and maintain an ideal body weight to reduce obesity and non-communicable diseases
3) Create awareness among them on making the right choices of food
4) Encourage the food industry, producers, distributors, and farmers to make healthy foods available to all

The theme for Nutrition Month 2017 is “Healthy diet, gawing habit – for life!”

For its part, the Department of Education released a Memorandum #105-2017 which enjoins educational institutions to undertake “meaningful activities which will highlight the importance of good nutrition, healthy diet, and healthy lifestyle.” These activities can include school parades, slogan and poster making contests, essay writing competitions, among others.

The national nutrition month is celebrated every July as stipulated in Presidential Decree 491, which also mandated the creation of NNC in 1974. It must be noted that during that time, then-President Ferdinand Marcos had both executive and legislative powers.
