How do you raise a healthier family? By serving healthy and nutrient-packed foods. Unfortunately, this is easier said than done. The rising cost of living has had many poor families resort to feeding cheap but unhealthy meals. Children are also known to be picky with their food and often refuse to eat vegetables. With this in mind, the National Nutrition Council (NNC) XI launched the Nutri Pinoy Henyo Series, a project aimed at addressing the need to improve the nutritional condition of Filipino families.
