19 barangays record zero cases of stunting
by Japeth G. Tobias

Nineteen barangays in Baguio City were awarded by the National Nutrition Council-Cordillera and Department of Health for attaining zero prevalence of stunting among zero to 71 months old children in 2016 based on their Operation Timbang Plus results.

From 29, the number was reduced to 19 barangays where zero cases of stunting were recorded since 2014.

Recognized are barangays City Camp, Lourdes Subdivision, Lower Dagsian, Upper Dagsian, Fort del Pilar, Upper General Luna, Lower General Luna, Happy Homes, Holy Ghost Proper, Magsaysay Private Road, MMR-Queen of Peace, West Modernsite, Palma-Urbano, Phil-Am, Pinget, Upper QM, Middle Quezon Hill, Scout Barrio, South Drive, and T. Alonzo St.

According to the Food and Nutrition Research Institute of the Department of Science and Technology, four in every 10 Filipino children less than five years old are considered stunted or children who failed to achieve the expected height for his or her age due to long-lasting malnutrition, which might cause reduction of the learning and physical abilities of a child.

The Barangay Nutrition Action Plans of the awardees include conduct of nutrition education classes with pregnant women, house to house visiting to parents of zero to 71 months children, consistent monitoring and profiling, and micronutrient supplementation programs.

T. Alonzo Barangay Kagawad Silverio S. Somera said while a zero-case status on stunting is a victory on their part, maintaining it and achieving a zero number of underweight individuals remain a challenge for them.
