HADSAP launches advocacy on nutrition education

The Health and Dietary Supplement Association of the Philippines (HADSAP) together with the Food and Nutrition Research Institute (FNRI), and Rotary Club West started a project called “Lodi ang Healthy” at the Signal Village National High school.

An all-day nutrition educa-tion seminar and workshop for young moms and kids from
underprivileged families in the community, “Lodi ang Healthy” is in line with the United Na-tion’s Millennium Development goals, which include improved maternal health, and reduction of child mortality.

HADSAP pursued its nu-trition education advocacy through larger scale nutrition summits, and while shifting to smaller events at the grassroots level was always a goal, there were challenges that could only be overcome by making the ef-fort multi-sectoral.

Since it was established in 2007, it has been one of the’ (HADSAP) core functions to closely cooperate with the Food and Nutrition Research Insti-tute of the Philippines (FNRI) on matters of the agency’s mandate, which is to improve the state of nutrition of every Filipino through research, and education.

Aside from nutrition edu-cation, mom’s and kids who attended “Lodi ang Healthy” took home supplements from HADSAP’s member companies. HADSAP’s member compa-nies are Amway Philippines; Capsugel, GND International, Total Nutrition, Herbs Express, Herbs and Nature, Nikken, Nu Skin, Splash, Symmetry, and Unicity.
