To promote healthy living and proper nutrition among its constituents, the City Nutrition Committee recently searched the 2022 Green Banner Seal of Compliance recipients in 46 barangays on March 21-31, 2023
The two-week search was carried out through the Monitoring and Evaluation on Local Level Plan Implementation (MELLPI), which assessed the program efficiency of barangay nutrition committees concerning program outreach, budget allocation, expenditure, and policies issued.
It also measures the change in nutritional status among preschool and schoolchildren for three years. Alongside MELLPI is the BNS Evaluation that measures the Barangay Nutrition Scholar’s performance in the nutrition program management and monitoring and referral of the malnourished children at the barangay level.
The Green Banner Award is given to a barangay that successfully implements its nutrition program. They will receive the award during the City Nutrition Awarding Ceremony in July 2023.
The City Nutrition Evaluation Teams were the members of the City Nutrition Committee, which was represented by Achille Cabanelez of the City Planning and Development Office, Raffy Rubillos of the City Treasurer Office, Maridol F. Guinita, Gecel Ocon and Myrasul Bernaldez of the City Agriculture Office, Joni Esther P. Parrado of City Administrator’s Office, Lou Francis Alesna of City Budget Office, Dionesio Alesna of City Accounting Office, Tessie Anian and Manelyn Ybiernas of City Disaster Risk and Reduction Management Office, Keziah Fatima Un and Hazel Rusiana of DepEd-Bukidnon, Milfe Padan of the City Social and Welfare Development Office, Eza Canonigo, Jezza Nina Marie Vega, Maria Melita Rosalejos, Jeycel Lumalang, Bernandita Mendoza and Eden Rose Ganancial of City Health Office-Nutrition Section.
The City Nutrition Committee also reiterated its commitment to promoting proper nutrition and healthy living among its constituents and called on all barangays to continue their efforts. With the successful search for the 2022 Green Banner Seal of Compliance Awardee Barangays, it is hoped that more barangays will be motivated to promote healthy living and proper nutrition.
