Nutrition Month Theme 2024: “Sa PPAN: Sama-sama sa Nutrisyong Sapat Para sa Lahat!”

Schools across the country will be celebrating the annual National Nutrition Month or “Buwan ng Nutrisyon” this coming July. Hence, the National Nutrition Council (NNC) has announced that the theme for this year’s celebration is “Sa PPAN: Sama-sama sa Nutrisyong Sapat Para sa Lahat!” (“Through PPAN, let’s collaborate on nutrition security for all!“). The NNC is celebrating its 50th foundation anniversary this 2024.

PPAN is the acronym for the Philippine Plan of Action for Nutrition for 2023 to 2028. In a statement posted on its official social media platforms, the NNC explained that this year’s theme aims to raise public awareness about PPAN especially at the barangay level. “(It) aims to improve nutrition across all the life stages through strategies such as improving consumption of healthier diets, adoption of positive nutrition practices and increased access to quality nutrition services and enabling mechanisms,” it explained.

“By calling for collective action in implementing the PPAN, all forms of malnutrition are thwarted with the end goal of ensuring nutrition security for all Filipinos… Nutrition Month aims to increase awareness and generate participation and commitments for increased support for the PPAN among stakeholders from government, local government units, non-government organizations, business, civil society and communities,” the agency further elaborated.

The Department of Education is expected to release an official memorandum in the coming days or weeks pertaining to this. This post will be updated if and when that has been published.  Typically, schools organize various activities and events connected to the nutrition month including essay writing, jingle-making, as well as slogan-making contests.
