The culmination of the Nutrition Month celebration was spearheaded by the City Health Office of Iloilo last 12 August 2011 at the Robinson’s Place Iloilo. The mall was jam packed with lactating mothers from the barangays of the different districts of the city as well as guests from local governments and non-government organizations like Rising Sun of Iloilo which spearheaded the event in partnership with the CHO. The  activity highlighted this year’s Nutrition Month theme which is "Isulong ang Breastfeeding: Tama, Sapat at EKsklusibo!”. 

Some of the guests who graced the event were Ms Nona Tad-y, Region VI Nutrition Program Coordinator, Dr. Anthony Redaniel, the MDG-F2030 Field Program Coordinator and Dr. Urminico Baronda, the CHO chief.

The organizers of the event put up booths about breastfeeding, nutrition counseling and photo exhibits of other partner agencies. The CHO also organized some contests about nutrition which included the Tatay and Nanay cook fest, nutri-jingle, the biggest gainer, Nutrisyon Henyo and orally-fit mothers.
