Nutrition Month 2014

     This year's theme for the celebration of Nutrition Month 2014 is "Kalamidad paghandaan: Gutom at malnutrisyon agapan!”. According to the National Nutrition Council, the 2014 Nutrition Month Theme aims to uphold interventions in addressing the nutrition needs of the Filipinos extending from preparedness, response, recovery and rehabilitation phases. Moreover, it stresses a public responsibility to develop an attitude of “I am ready” especially among the most nutritionally vulnerable population and hazard-prone areas in the country. It is believed that underpinning nutrition awareness is a great key to better prepare and efficiently respond to Nutrition in Emergencies!

     Every Nutrition Month, our school holds feeding activity where students bring nutritious dishes for the class to share. I like this kind of co-curricular activity because this proves that school is not just lessons lessons lessons rather fun and enjoyable as well.
     I was very happy on how cooperative the parents are since most of my students brought a lot of food for our section. Aside from sumptuous food,  (wow sumptuous!) the students also had the opportunity to have bonding time since we eat together as a section.
Our "sumptuous" feast...heheh

Stop eating and pose for the camera....

Of course, I also need to have a pose with my students...hehehe

   By afternoon, we had a culminating program where some of the students showcased their presentation related to the celebration. 
Pupils enthusiastically waiting for the program to start
    Overall, this day was a lot of fun and filling as well.This was the first celebration I had for the school year together with my new students. I am looking forward for the next celebrations we will be sharing for this school year.
