TUGUEGARAO CITY, Cagayan - - Department of Health – Center for Health Development Region 2 (DOH-CHD 2) stressed that no donations of infant formula milk during disaster eventualities are accepted or fed to infants.

Carol Jean Domingo, nutritionist and dietician, said the Milk Code or Executive Order 54 provides that donations of products covered by the law including infant formula, bottles  and teats are not allowed, hence, acceptance of said items specially during emergencies are prohibited.

 “We observed that during calamities, there are many donations including formula milk, especially from foreign donors. We stress that it is not accepted as we want to protect the health and nutrition of infants for they are the most vulnerable individuals during state of emergencies,” Domingo said.

On her part, Nutrition program coordinator Rhodora Maestre explained that the government advocates for breastfeeding as it is the best milk for babies to sustain their good nutrition and provide nutrients needed for their growth and development.

She also emphasized that there are no excuses that mothers could not provide breast milk to their babies because every female individual, even old aged, are capable of producing milk for their babies.

“The only excuse we accept is the case wherein mothers are diagnosed as HIV/AIDS positives but still they are given the option to breastfeed their babies, if not the nutritionists must look for breast milk donors but not to allow infant formula intake to the infant,” Maestre and Domingo jointly discussed during explained with media during Nutrition Month Observance kick-off ceremony.

Maestre further said they are conducting training on infant and young child feeding to capacitate community health teams of the barangays and LGUs to be able to accurately respond to the nutrition needs of vulnerable sectors during calamities, especially those who will be rescued and evacuated.  (OTB-PIA2/Cagayan)

The second issue now focuses on the NGF which was adopted and approved by the National Nutrition Council Governing Board in 2012. A product of the efforts and hard work of an inter-agency and multi-disciplinary technical working group organized by the Food and Nutrition Research Institute of the Department of Science and Technology, the NGF was promulgated with the end goal that it will serve as guidelines for the “improvement of nutritional status, productivity and quality of life of the population, through the adoption of desirable dietary practices and healthy lifestyle. The set of NGF aims to protect and promote the nutrition of Filipinos. It provides the basis and reference for the nutrition community in the development of nutrition information, education and communication materials and in the conduct of nutrition education and advocacy activities.”

NPC Maestre described nutrition in emergencies as key nutrition services that are components of emergency preparedness, response and recovery phases aimed at preventing death and worsening of malnutrition in the affected population.

Still citing the mechanics, Maestre said that “during emergency and crisis situations, people’s ability to produce, buy and prepare food is severely affected”. Such situation, she said, “result in increased vulnerability to health and food insecurity and consequently, to malnutrition, with infants and young children being the most vulnerable”.

The contest is open to Filipino citizens, 12 years old and above and the theme should be in Filipino consisting of not more than 10 words. Each individual can only submit one entry  through the email address This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
