Did You Know: Nutrition Month
Nutrition Month is observed every July by virtue of Presidential Decree No. 491 signed on June 25, 1974 by then President Ferdinand Marcos.
The National Nutrition Council, which was created by the same presidential decree, was tasked to help promote greater awareness among Filipinos of the importance of nutrition.
The council holds office at the Nutrition Building on Chino Roces Avenue Extension in Taguig City. —Marielle Medina, Inquirer Research
