Food,Nutrition and Agriculture

Posted last August 6, 2015, 7:46 am in Food report article

If poor family may not be healthy physically because of financial problem in buying nutritional and healthy foods,the rich family may encounter also health problems because of the factor of not considering healthy foods needed by the body although they can afford to buy the needed requirement of food in daily consumption.In order for the children to grow healthy there's the need to provide the proper food they need and for adult there's the need to consider physical activity as part of exercise and proper diet lifestyle in order to avoid illnesses that can affect the capability in doing things.


One good advocacy that may help every Filipino family to be aware of the result of not eating the required amount of nutritional and healthy food is the program of Greenpeace Philippines.In their studies presented in a conference in Quezon City with the participation of the representative of different agency of the government like Department of Agriculture,Department of Science and Technology and other supportive organization in the Academe,Religious and Civil Society Group there's the need to provide solution about the case of under nutrition among children and over nutrition among adults.In a report stated by Greenpeace Philippines Food and Ecological Agriculture Campaigner Virginia Benosa-Llorin she declared that when we talk of food and nutrition issues in the Philippines,many factors come into play,such as poverty,agriculture,access to food consumption and our existing food systems.With  this statement according to her there's the need to examine and evaluate the nation's views on food and nutrition more than just being 'foodies',we should be discerning when it comes to our food and ask if what we eat and feed our families with is safe and nutritious,even ask who produces it and how.


In terms of implementing action,one good model program will be the Sarilaya Women Farmers.Accordig to Ms. Myrna Jimenez,Sustainable Agriculture Coordinator Kasarian-Kalayaan Inc.(SARILAYA),she emphasized about Sari-lingap program.With the concept of social enterprise development in the  community and the establishing of wellness center called Farmacy which promote organic and sustainabe agriculture.By havig such kind of program many families in different region in the philippines especially small farmers have been benefited.With a small area for planting fruits and vegetables and be able to increase the amount of eating fruits and vegetables daily,the problem about people having non-communicable disease will be decrease in number.The right information and application to solve problem about health and nutrition is really needed in order to prevent dseases or illnesses which will be one big problem especially if the family will be in the poor category of the society.
