As the Philippines observe July as the month of nutrition, the Local Government Unit of Jagna launched the month of nutrition on June 29.
After the annual Alay Lakad was the launching of nutrition month with the theme “Pagkain ng Gulay Ugaliin, Araw-Araw Itong
Ihain”. The theme aims to instill in children the healthful benefits of eating vegetables which are necessary to have a healthy body and sound mind.
Nutrition month serves as the time to remind parents, teachers, and students the importance of eating vegetables, said Jagna Mayor Fortunato R. Abrenilla. Most kids do not like to eat vegetables and it is up to the parents to find ways to make their children get interested.
A short program followed at the Jagna Gymnasium to formally launch July as nutrition month. Spearheaded by the Municipal Nutrition
Council, activities are lined up the whole month such as nutri quiz for high school students and elementary pupils, slogan making contest, poster making and many others. Feeding to school children will be enhanced the whole month.
