The Tutok Kainan Dietary Supplementation program has already left an imprint on each beneficiary. In the first three months of implementation of the program in the province of South Cotabato, many lives of children aged 6–23 months old have already changed. From wasted to normal, stunted to normal, and underweight to normal. 

This only proves that a dietary supplementation program is effective and efficient in battling against malnutrition if administered timely, correctly, and properly. Now, we’ll talk about the story of Ryniel, a 10-month old child from Purok Bagong-silang, Caloocan, Koronadal City. Ryniel is the second child in the family. 

Ryniel has the nutritional status of a wasted before receiving commodities such as Rice Mongo and Sesame blend, Mingo Meals, and Momsies for the Tutok Kainan DSP. Ryniel's guardian is his grandmother, Lydia, since his mother works full time to fulfill the duties of both father and mother.
