Mayor Jeff Besinio administering the oath of newly elected Barangay Nutrition Scholar (BNS) Officers

The Municipality of Baao spearheaded the 2022 Nutrition Month Celebration culminating activity last July 26, 2022 at the Baao Covered Court. This activity include oathtaking of the new BNS Federation Officers and distribution of backyard vegetable seeds to the Barangay Nutrition Council (BNC).

For this year, the National Nutrition Council Technical Committee approved through ad referencum the theme for this year’s Nutrition Month campaign in July which is “New normal na nutrisyon, sama-samang gawan ng solusyon!”. The theme calls for strengthened nutrition interventions and solidarity towards nutrition improvement as the country shifts towards living with the COVID-19 virus. The theme signifies the key role of nutrition in building resilience from pandemic to endemic paradigm. The term “new normal” was adopted to signify a transition to a better normal while bringing the positive impacts of the pandemic to become more resilient and to prevent future pandemics.
