The theme for this year's Nutrition Month campaign which is "New normal na nutrisyon, sama-samang gawan ng solusyon!" calls for strengthened nutrition interventions and solidarity towards nutrition improvement as the country shifts towards living with the COVID-19 virus. The theme signifies the key role of nutrition in building resilience from pandemic to endemic paradigm. The term "new normal" was adopted to indicate a transition to a better normal while bringing the positive impacts of the pandemic to become more resilient and prevent future pandemics. The pandemic has made a huge impact on nutrition, such as disruptions in delivering nutrition and related services, increased hunger incidence, etc. But there are also positive impacts such as innovation in service delivery, home food production, increased awareness of one's health and consuming healthy diets, and solidarity amongst the people to help each other.

As to what the objectives of the campaign state; 1.) Raise the awareness of the importance of nutrition in building resilience and recovery from the pandemic, 2.) Stimulate discussions among stakeholders on how to build back better the design, delivery, and scale-up of nutrition interventions; and 3.) Engage various sectors and the public in activities that promote nutrition.

The regional office is looking forward to conducting more webinar series to get a larger scope or group to help disseminate nutrition information and improve the overall nutrition well-being of the people in MIMAROPA.
