In line with the National Nutrition Month celebration held every July, the Sto. Niño Elementary School in cooperation with the Rural Health Unit of Tampilisan and the Team Sto. Niño held their commencement program of the said celebration last July 5, 2018. The theme “Ugaliing Magtanim, Sapat na Nutrisyon Aanihin” aims to give awareness, the importance of planting as a source of nutritious, economical and palatable fruits and vegetables for every Filipino household. Glenn Garcia of Team Sto. Niño gave his inspiring message on the benefits of being healthy by achieving it holistically.
The program was initiated by the school and guests were Team Sto. Niño, as well as the District Nurse. Part of the program was the Best “Law-oy” contest, a dish with various vegetables which were participated by every grade level. Parents were happily helping in preparing and in cooking as a support for their children.
A feeding of all the pupils was also done, to promote healthy eating. One of the highlights that Team Sto. Niño prepared during that day was the Nutri Quiz Bee and Poster Making contest which were joyfully participated by the pupils. Prizes were given to the winners, thanks to the very supportive Dr. Carmel Mathilda Lazeda of the RHU. 😊
