It is important that people must have healthy dietary practices. Healthy diet is defined as the right choice of food that has enough nutrition in order to be health. Healthy diet is characterized as balance, variety and moderation. Balance refers to consuming of foods from different food groups in proportion to each other. Whereas variety refers to eating different kinds of food from the different food groups daily and moderation is the consumption of food in right proportion.

According to Dietary guidelines for Americans, healthy diet emphasizes consumption of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and low-fat milk and milk products, includes a variety of protein source foods such as meat, eggs and poultry,  is low in saturated fats, trans fats, cholesterol, sodium and added sugars and meets the daily calorie requirement of the body.

Diets that are high in sugars, saturated and trans-fats, and low in fruits and vegetables increases the risk of having non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and other health problems.  According to World Health Organization, unhealthy diet and physical inactivity are the leading global risks to health. These would increase the risk of becoming overweight or obese and developing NCDs later in life.

Doomsayers have predicted that newspapering, as an industry, will fold its pages with the coming-of-age of the internet. They were wrong.

However, nothing was said of broadcast  radio as it remained to be the main source of information for rural communites where reliable internal access is lacking.

Kantar Media, in a 2018 survey as published by Statista Research Development on June 21, 2021 reported that 62 percent of the respondents accessed media through radio.  The Philippine Statistics Authority said radio is the second most used medium in 2013 while in a 2012 survey, the National Commission on Culture and the Arts said radio has reached 82 percent of Philippine households.

For the National Nutrition Council Region 2, the use of community radio has  always been part of its information culture of excellence. It has created a niche of its own in the challenging world of communicating nutrition advocacies, unprecedented in recent memory; until the pandemic set it.

What started out as a loose group of media practitioners organized by NNC region 2 a decade ago, with only a handful members, is now an information power house tasked to bring timely and relevant nutrition information, its members increasing through the years.

Today, 12 radio stations, including five community radio stations have somehow became the backbone of the agency’s advocacies back to back with print and local television stations.
