SAN NICOLAS- This agricultural town of the 6th District joined the celebration of Nutrition Month last July 24 held at the town’s public gymnasium.

Two schools divisions of the Department of Education (DepEd) participated in different activities like cook fest contest, slogan making, poster making, jingle presentation around the theme “Timbang Iwasto Sa Tamang Nutrisyon at Ehersisyo.”

The activity was led by Mayor Rebecca Mejica Saldivar who said proper nutrition especially for young children is very important to develop not only their physical being but also their mental faculties.

” Parents play an important role in providing proper nutrition to their children, which ranges from selection of proper food to eat and its preparation. We can’t afford to have unhealthy constituents who will become future leaders of the town,” Saldivar said.

She lauded the officials and teachers of the schools divisions of the town for spearheading the activities of the nutrition month celebration and urged them to make the event sustainable to inculcate the importance of proper nutrition to young children.

Meanwhile, as a prelude to the nutrition month celebration, Saldivar spearheaded the supplemental feeding program among toddlers at San Rafael West village last July 20.

In her message to the village people, Mayor Saldivar urged the parents to look into the nutritional needs of their kids and the physical activities they indulged in so they will become healthy and physically active.

” Healthy young people are our assets in the future. They will not only become good leaders but also professionals who will spur the development and progress of our town,” she said.
