Gov Suarez: Quezon malnutrition down to 9.32%
Quezon Governor David Suarez on May 29 said the province’s malnutrition incidence has dropped to 9.32% in 2017 from 17.92 in 2009.
The Quezon politiko made the announcement during the roundtable discussion of the League of Provinces.
Suarez attributed the decline in malnutrition to the provincial government’s Quezon’s First 1,000 Days of Life (Q1K) program.
The Q1K program focuses on natal and child’s care from the womb to the first 1,000 days of a child’s life.
Suarez also highlighted the supplementary micronutrient packs processed at the Quezon Herbal Processing Center in Pagbilao as a big boost to the program.
“We put up a processing center. We buy from farmers and bring the products to the processing center. Our farmers are helping the pregnant women of Quezon province by supplying them complimentary micronutrient packs that Q1K is providing them,” he said.
