Breastfeeding Facebook Post

August just gone but we hope that the essence of breastfeeding awareness month celebration instilled in the minds of everyone. That breastfeeding is the norm and the best and complete food for babies.

Choosing how a mother will feed her baby is one of the most important decisions she will make. There is no other natural food in the world than breastmilk and no other natural choice than breastfeeding. Breastmilk is the perfect, irreplaceable gift a mother can give to her baby.

Nutrition is a dynamic science as it has a close interlinking relationship between food, education, and nutrition. With proper nutrition, healthy children learn better. The World Health Organization (WHO) asserts that people with adequate nutrition are more productive and can create opportunities to gradually break the cycles of poverty and hunger.

July has always been the designated month to commemorate the annual National Nutrition Month celebration as per Presidential Decree (PD) No. 491, declaring nutrition as a priority to be implemented by all branches of the government of the Philippines in an integrated fashion affirmed by the late President Ferdinand Marcos.
