Wednesday, February 26, 2014 – The different departments of the Local Government Unit (LGU) of Lal-lo presented their accomplishment reports in relation to the improvement of the nutritional status of the municipality at the Municipal Nutrition Committee (MNC) building. This is still part of the Program Implementation Review (PIR) of the National Nutrition Council-Cagayan Valley Region (NNC-RO2) and the Municipal Nutrition Committee (MNC).
Dr. Carlos Cortina, the Provincial Nutrition Action Officer of Cagayan who happens to be a proud Lal-loqueño himself was in attendance during the event. He gave significant insights on how nutrition programs in the municipality could be more developed.
Dra. Maria Concepcion Abbang, the Municipal Nutrition Action Officer of Lal-lo presented the Nutritional Trend of Lal-lo from 2007-2013. Based from such report, the number of overweight, underweight, stunted and wasted has consistently dropped since 2007.
With the continuous efforts of all the departments, the nutrition status in the municipality will definitely flourish for the next years to come.
