‘Proper’ nutrition starts at home

TABUK CITY, Kalinga – Claiming everything starts at home, Mayor Ferdinand B. Tubban stressed that children should acquire education on the right nutrition at home.

As basic unit of society, the family needs to include in the chores practices on food production, preparation of proper diet, and healthy lifestyle, Tubban said during the city’s culmination of the Nutrition Month celebration with the theme, “Ugaliing magtanim sapat na nutrisyon aanihin.

On food production, Tubban recalled how early families met food requirement through backyard gardens and livestock production, which he said is still applicable today.

He called on parents to also teach their children on food preparation to discourage them from eating junk foods.

Because children do not know the proper food they should eat, they just grab junk foods every time they are hungry, he said.

“If we allow this, we do not only let them eat the wrong foods but also allow them contribute to the environmental problems from littered plastic wrappers,” Tubban said.

Proper nutrition is always accompanied by healthy lifestyle, the mayor said, as he called on parents to be models in their homes by developing healthy habits.

The city culminated this year’s Nutrition Month celebration with a literary contest, draw and tell, well baby, slogan and poster making, infomercial, and hataw.
