The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) - Region 02 has intensified its initiatives to promote healthy lifestyle and nutrition among employees in the organization.

During the Nutrition Month in July of this year, Ms. Ragel Tacazon, TIDS and Regional Technical Assistant for Nutrition (RTAN) conducted an awareness and orientation session on the advocacies of the National Nutrition Council (NNC) that are geared towards creating vibrant and healthy communities and reducing malnutrition, especially among children.

In order to promote backyard gardening, Ms. Tacazon also distributed vegetable seeds provided by the Department of Agriculture-RFO2 and IEC materials from the NNC to her fellow employees.

The Friday Zumba Session was relived and some employees have begun the afternoon walk practice. Likewise, in the recently concluded General Assembly of the DTI-R02, lifestyle activities were integrated in the program such as a fun run and zumba.

DTI-Region 02 is truly one with the nation in developing a healthy and better Philippines!
