Many studies have shown that eating habits are established early in the life cycle and tend to carry through to adulthood. As a result, the food that children eat now will undoubtedly influence their state of health in later life. Making informed food choices is an integral part of a child’s normal growth and development. Many studies have shown that healthy eating habits developed early in life will encourage healthy eating as an adult.
Maricaban Elementary School has now come up with a feeding program which caters children who fall under severely wasted to wasted category according to the result of their Body Mass Index (BMI).
This program has become one of the focus of the school throughout the years, maintaining a good and balanced diet among the learners which help them absorb enculcated knowledge by the teachers and the experiences they have inside and outside the school.
Feeding Program is closely monitored by the school head Mr. Romy P. Socao with the Feeding Teacher, Mrs. Aida C. Mendiola.
