Nutrition Caravan rolls out in Catbalogan

The City of Catbalogan was among the towns and cities in the entire region who took part in the Regional Nutrition Caravan last July 18, 2012. The caravan started at the City Hall and passed by the northern barangays, making specific stops in Brgy. San Vicente and Brgy. Cabugawan before proceeding to Brgy. Silanga for a short program with close to 300 Barangay Nutrition Scholars (BNS) and mothers in attendance.

The Barangay Nutrition Scholars and mothers were chosen as participants as they play a key role in spreading word about the importance of good nutrition. Other key stakeholders who were present during the program were the school district supervisors, members of the City Nutrition Council, local officials, the media and representatives from the National Nutrition Council (NNC) – Regional Office 08.

The activity was spearheaded by the City Nutrition Council, led by City Nutrition Action Officer, Mrs. Herminia Cabral and the City Council’s Chair of the Committee on Health, Hon. Stephany Uy-Tan. NNC – RO 08’s Nutrition Officer, Ms. Segundina Devota Dilao came to show support for the local council’s efforts. She was accompanied by members of HIMSoG or Harmonized Initiatives of Media for the Support of Good Nutrition. City Vice Mayor Art Sherwin Gabon, council members including Hon. Jovito Redaja, Hon. Maximo Pescos and ABC City Federation President Edward M. Uy also came to give inspirational messages.
