The National Nutrition Council MIMAROPA, led by NPC Blanco together with PNFP Torres convened a coordination meeting with DAR, ARBOs, and LGUs of Occidental Mindoro to prepare for the upcoming wet feeding phase of the Tutok Kainan Dietary Supplementation Program, which will begin on May 18, 2022.
It has been three weeks since the program started in the province. Some municipalities like Magsaysay, Santa Cruz, Abra de Ilog, and Paluan conducted their respective Tutok Kainan Launching, showcasing the food commodities originally developed by the Food and Nutrition Research Institute and live demonstration on how to prepare the commodities for consumption of the beneficiaries. Weekly conduct of monitoring on the actual feeding is also done to ensure that the parents or caregivers are well-guided throughout the implementation of Tutok Kainan.
During the meeting, PNFP Torres discussed the following topics: Timeline of Activities of the Tutok Kainan Implementation, Roles and Responsibilities of Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries' Organizations (ARBOs), documents to be submitted by ARBOs, Cycle Menu for wet feeding phase and the transition feeding for 6-11 months old beneficiaries, basics of food service system, and golden rules of food safety.
This meeting aims to also connect the LGUs of Occidental Mindoro and the ARBOs; a few agreements were made in order for the program to operate successfully especially in terms of the delivery of perishable items which is a big factor to consider in implementing this program.
