Help Battle Malnutrition with Knorr's Lutong Nanay Food Fair

Although I like eating out and trying various dishes from different restaurants, I'd have to admit that home-cooked meals still have that distinct charm and warmth that make me yearn for them from time to time. And how couldn't I? My mom makes a mean sinigang, ginisang monggo with pork, pork asado, and many more!

And even though I'd love to brag and brag about her cooking prowess, I can't deny that brands like Knorr has helped my mom make her dishes even more flavorful and hearty.

Sadly though, a lot of people especially children in the Philippines, are not fortunate enough to enjoy hearty food that are not only delicious but also nutritious. According to the Food and Nutrition Research Institute of the DOST (Department of Science and Technology), there are at least 5 million children who are malnourished in the Philippines. If we think about this, it's a staggering number that shows how the issue is closer to home than we actually think.

Wanting to take urgent action, Knorr has launched its “Lutong Nanay” Nutrition Program in various barangays and communities nationwide. They have partnered with Kabisig ng Kalahi for the Metro Manila leg of the initiative, to build a sustainable nutrition program that goes beyond simply distributing food.

Knorr recently visited two barangays in Smokey Mountain -- Barangay 101 and 128, with its ambassadors Dimples Romana, Danica Sotto-Pingris and Sari Jorge, who joined forces to help educate moms and children about the importance of a healthy diet for the family. Ambassadors Carmina Villaroel and Chesca Kramer also joined Knorr at the Cardinal Sin Village, where mothers and children learned the importance of a vigorous diet for the family.

“Feeding our families nutritious food doesn’t have to be expensive. What’s important is that we give them a well-balanced meal every day,” says Carmina Villaroel.

With the help of Knorr’s "Lutong Nanay" Nutrition Program, more and more moms are inspired, motivated and informed about how important it is to serve healthy meals for their family. It’s a long way to go but Knorr’s ongoing program is a big step towards fighting malnutrition in Filipino children.
