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.
