The training aims to capacitate the provincial, city and municipal nutrition workers to provide appropriate supervision and adequate learning to nutrition front liners- Barangay Nutrition Scholars

The training participants are expected to train BNS to have a common basic knowledge and skills as well as core values and traits that are necessary for them to perform their roles and functions effectively and efficiently.

Thirty (30) participants attended the training composed municipal nutrition action officers, public health nurses, midwives, district/ city nutrition program coordinators and technical staff (JO- NO I & NO II) of NNC region XII. The participants underwent a 5-days session in which they have been taught of the basics as well as updated their knowledge in nutrition.

With the aid of our resource persons: Gladys Mae S. Fernandez, NO III of NNC XII, Veronica M. Daut, CNAO of Koronadal City, Maria Ana D. Uy (PNAO of South Cotabato Province), Nannette C. Cabidog, (CNPC of General Santos City) and Ms. Raquel Buerre (CNPC of Naga City), the participants were equipped with basic knowledge on various aspects such as: life cycle approach to good health and nutrition, steeping up the skills of BNSs, and, nutrition in different life cycle. Before the end of the training, they were required to prepare a draft Barangay Nutrition Action Plan and re-entry plan.

The training of trainers on the Basic Course for BNS is just a simple way of improving the nutrition situation through implementation of an effective nutrition programs/projects and activities. It is true that it is worthwhile to invest on continuing education to improve the country’s nutrition situation.”
