DTI Northern Mindanao joins the 47th Nutrition Month celebration

Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Northern Mindanao joins the Regional Nutrition Council in the fight against malnutrition in celebration of the 2021 Nutrition Month.

This year’s theme highlights the significance of continued efforts to address malnutrition. With the ongoing pandemic, the nutrition of each individual is being affected with the limited access to food, insufficient nutritional needs in ayuda food items, interruption on nutrition programs and maternal health services, and an increase of physical inactivity and unhealthy behaviors.

The 2021 campaign calls for all sectors to focus efforts on the first 1,000 days of life as an intervention to prevent stunting and obesity.
