In observance of Nutrition Month, the City Health Office and the City Nutrition Committee will conduct the search for the Model Breastfeeding Mother on Thursday, July 7.

The on-the-spot search will highlight the opening program for the Nutrition Month celebration themed “Isulong ang BREASTFEEDING – Tama, Sapat at EKsklusibo.” The program dubbed “Nutri Walk” will start at 3pm at the Paseo del Mar.

The program will kick off with a parade from the Zamboanga Central School towards Mayor Climaco Avenue and culminate at Paseo del Mar, where the program and search will be conducted.
Nutri Walk is the City’s first event among the series of nutrition-related activities in observance of the Nutrition Month. Another highlight of the said program will be the launching of the Vita Nutrient Mix by the World Food Organization.

Vita Nutrient Mix is a micronutrient powder with 15 vitamins and minerals intended for children from 6 months to 2 years old. The powder can be mixed with the food or milk of children belonging to the age category to ensure the absorption of the essential nutrients.

Vita Nutrient Mix will be distributed for free in August thru the different health centers in the city. — City Hall PIO
