II. PROJECT DESCRIPTION

A. RATIONALE

Hunger and malnutrition among school-age partnership for child


development children are significant deterrents to school progress and to current
and future good health.

School feeding programs can be an important

component of school-based health programs designed to ameliorate these


problems. By adopting the recommendations presented here, countries can help
to ensure that feeding program contribute to children attaining their full
educational potential and good health. Education and learning depend on good
nutrition and health. Nutritional and health status are powerful influences on a
childs learning and on how well a child performs in school. Children who lack
certain nutrients in their diet (particularly iron and iodine), or who suffer from
protein-energy malnutrition, hunger, parasitic infections or other diseases, do not
have the same potential for learning as healthy and well-nourished children.
Weak health and poor nutrition among school-age children diminish their
cognitive development either through physiological changes or by reducing their
ability to participate in learning experiences - or both.

Barangay 24 Day Care Center provides support programs that ensure


total development and protection of children. The center caters to 55 children of
the Barangay 24, Batangas City with age brackets between 3 to 6 years old who
are all attending weekday classes.
The proposal have come up with certain issues regarding what we
observed based on their situation. First, parents are now dependable on
processed good that were easily both on malls and markets. No one had brought
a food that was cooked and prepared by their mothers. The proponents had
appreciated the effort of parents that buying goods in mall is more convenient
than preparing food at home.
However, the health of the children is at risk. Children may be prone on sickness.
Second, the enjoyment felt by children every time they eat junk food and soft
drinks. Were all worried about the growing demand of children in eating junk
foods rather than fruits and vegetables.
It is, therefore, that the proponents aim to propose the project Wealthy
Nation lies on the Health of its Nation: Improving Healthy Lifestyle through Proper

Eating Habits and Diet in hope of renewing the culture of treasuring the health of
every child for they will be the future steward of nation. The project also aims to
give parents a new perspective of right and convenient food which is appropriate
to their growing children.
The eight feeding session that the proponents will be conducting would
make sure of bringing children a perspective of life based on fruits and
vegetables. Our Feeding program in Barangay 24 Day Care Center can also help
in contributing to the norms of our government to reduce and erase clearly the
number of children whom experiencing hunger and famine due to poverty. The
proponents would exert their full effort of upbringing a healthy lifestyle for wealthy
nation lies on the health of its nation.
B. OBJECTIVES
The general objectives of our program are:
i.
ii.
iii.
iv.

to improve nutritional health of the students


to stimulate regular attendance at schools
to enhance broader development initiatives and
To introduce nutrition education to the students as well as to the
parents so that they can practice it at home.
The specific objectives of our feeding program are:

i.

to provide healthy and supplemental feeding to the children that they

ii.

will enjoy every Saturday of the month


to give them with their parents a talk about must-eat foods, healthy

iii.

lifestyle and proper hygiene and


To keep them away of junk foods and instead making close to fruits
and make them realize it is better.

The Instructor of the class supervised the overall action of the


proponents during the exercise of the program. The Project Leader is the one
who had been responsible on whole project. The organization is composed of
three committees with assigned person. The Finance Committee, kept and
collected the money entered to our project, Logistics Committee, take care of the
resources of the project and the Management & Documentation Committee,
recorded the very detail of the project. The class was divided into two groups:
Group A and Group B. The rotation of tasks depended on the groupings.

2. Services and Assistance Offered


The proponents had provided Rr Station Day Care Children the proper
and healthy foods that should be eat by the children. Weve also checked the
nutritional status of the children every week from January to March to monitor if
theres a change on their weight and improvement on health.
Aside from giving foods and feeding them, weve also shared lessons to
them and some encouragement for them to eat what weve offered. Weve also

devoted ourselves to them and be a good Ates and Kuyas that they would lean
on during the whole project. The Ates and Kuyas also served like the school bus
of the Day Care Children for some of the children are being assisted by us in
going home for us to assure their safety.
The proponents also decided to give the Day Care Center a new look so
we painted the Day Care Center including the chairs and tables.

3. Implementation Schedule
The project had existed every Saturdays that started January 12, 2013
to March 09, 2013. The service was consisted of four (4) hours a week, 7:00 to
11:00 in the morning.

B. SOCIAL VIABILITY
The project Wealthy Nation lies on the health of its Nation:
Improving Healthy Lifestyle through Proper Eating Habits and Diet is socially
viable for it aims to give the Rr Station Day Care Children a food which is healthy
and nutritious. The foundation of self-esteem is childhood. We also want to
develop a childs self-esteem for it is one of the factors that can make a child
developed a community-oriented value that is willing to serve others. Health is a
factor of improving childs self-esteem. In this, we can create good-valued
children that someday can serve our community.
Health also affects the gaining of intelligence of every child. Children
should be fed by proper foods in order for them to attend class regularly and
avoid sickness. Attendance plays an important role in learning process. Learning
can also be taught outside the four corners of the classroom. In school, some
outside activities are done to develop not only basic information but to develop
also good values and characters. Through intelligence with right characters,
future professionals are created which has a great part in developing a progress
community.

The excess money was used for a simple celebration of the NSTPservice students in making the Project successful.
IV. ASSESSMENT OF THE PROJECT
A. Findings
The proponents had find out how hard to feed a child. Weve noticed
that children are now really fun of eating junk foods instead of fruits and
vegetables. On the first day of our session, the proponents were shocked for
some of the children brought junk foods. So we decided to talk to the parents and
tell them not to let their child bring foods for we will provide the right and
convenient food that should be brought on school. One of our aims in this project
is to lessen childs addiction and dependency on junk foods. Second, Children
are easily captured by distractions when eating. Some of them are playing their
Psps and this trigger them on not to focus or eat the food we prepare. The
proponents decided to guide one by one every child for us to assure that they ate
what we prepare. Third, children has a limited food serving. The proponents had
decided to lessen the food serving so food could not be wasted. Fourth, children
should be praise on their good work. It really triggers them to eat and follow what
we are saying. On the weigh in, Weve noticed that the weight-increase on

children varies. Most of the children increase their weight. This is because the
Day Care Children has also feeding session every weekdays plus the feeding
program we conducted every Saturday. There are some children who ate the
most but theres a little increase on their weight.
B. Conclusions
Feeding Programs really play a role in childs health improvement.
1. Nutritional benefits. There is little evidence to suggest that school feeding
programs have a positive impact on nutrition for participating children. In some
instances, parents may provide less food at home, and the school meal simply
replaces a home meal rather than adding food to the childs diet. (There is some
evidence, however, that providing breakfast rather than lunch could diminish this
substitution effect.) In other instances, the food provided by the feeding program
may not adequately address the complex nutritional deficiencies in the childrens
diets (protein-energy malnutrition and lack of micronutrients). Also, the programs
may be too irregular to have a meaningful effect on the long-term nutritional
status of the children. On the other hand, there is some merit to the argument
that in the most impoverished settings, even seemingly minimal, short-term
efforts are worthwhile (food as a human right)even though it is not clear that
school feeding programs reach the neediest children.
Even if the program is for a short term, the experience and lessons from us
learned by every child is irreplaceable. Our project is not just providing them a
food but also to awaken parents what food should be fed on their children.
2. Impact on education and the link between hunger and learning. Much
evidence suggests that children who are hungry or chronically malnourished are
less able to learn, regardless of the setting.

3. Impact on attendance. The evidence strongly suggests that school feeding


programs can increase attendance rates, especially for girls. School feeding or
take-home rations serve as incentives for enrolling children in school and
encouraging daily attendance.
4. Alleviate short-term hunger in malnourished or otherwise well-nourished
schoolchildren. This helps to increase the attention and concentration of
students producing gains in cognitive function and learning.
5. Motivate parents to enroll their children in school and have them attend
regularly. When programs effectively reduce absenteeism and increase the
duration of schooling, educational outcomes (performance, dropout, and
repetition) improve.
6. Address specific micronutrient deficiencies in school-age children. Most
important of these are iodine and iron, which directly affect cognition. Meeting the
iron and iodine needs of school-age children can translate into better school
performance.
7. Increase community involvement in schools, particularly where
programs depend on the community to prepare and serve meals to
children. Schools with their communities behind them are more effective than
schools with less community involvement.
C. Recommendation
The proponents recommend the following:
1. Children should be away from any distractions during meals like television
and gadgets.
2. Children should teach of what proper foods to be eat and the
disadvantages of junk foods should be discussed in a good way.

3. Parents should be aware of the food they are giving to their children. Make
sure that it is healthy, wise and safe.
