Nutrition Month is an annual campaign held every July to create greater awareness on the importance of nutrition among Filipinos. Presidential Decree 491 (1974) mandates the National Nutrition Council (NNC) to lead and coordinate the nationwide campaign. Throughout the years, the Nutrition Month celebration has been institutionalized by schools and local government units as well as other stakeholders. This year is the 44th Nutrition Month celebration.
This year’s theme is Ugaliing magtanim, Sapat na nutisyon aanihin!
