DepEd-Abra strengthens the implementation of DepEd Order No. 13, s. 2017 also known as Policy and Guidelines on Healthy Food and Beverages in Schools and in DepEd Offices.

“Schools should have activities for Nutrition Month such as cookfests, slogan-making contests, NutriQuiz, and many others,” Mr. Darren Cariño of the School Health Office said. 

He emphasized the importance of taking good care of one’s body by eating healthy and nutritious foods. According to him, parents must also do their part by encouraging their children to eat healthily. 

He said that they will monitor the canteen and food establishments of public schools in compliance with DO No. 13.
