Challenge

In the Philippines, high level of malnutrition that leads to stunting and wasting is prevalent among children five years of age and below. This poor nutrition negatively affects their cognitive development, leading to low economic productivity later in life. The immediate factors for malnutrition include food insecurity and poor feeding practices which will be the Project's focus of intervention.

Solution

PBSP will provide nutritious meals to undernourished kids for a full cycle of supplementary feeding (120 days) to help them gain their ideal body weight. Also, knowledge and skills for complementary interventions at home will be provided through education sessions for their parents regarding basic nutrition, proper food preparation and backyard gardening. This is to ensure that these children will meet and sustain the basic food requirements for their age.

Long-Term Impact

Aside from saving the identified undernourished kids from the long-term and irreversible effects of stunting, the project hopes to contribute to the national reduction of stunting and wasting among all Filipino children under five years of age.
