Backyard gardening urged for security
(BOB TUSKIN) Optimistic in steadily reducing malnutrition prevalence, an official from the Region 7 office of the National Nutrition Council (NNC) is encouraging households to venture into backyard gardening especially those having malnourished children.
“We urge parents especially those having malnourished children to have backyard gardens where they can plant nutritious vegetables for their kids. This will also benefit them economically,” said Parolita Mission, executive director of NNC7.
Mission stressed that having backyard gardens do not necessarily need huge spaces as there are vegetable plants that survives in pot like tomatoes, cucumber among others.
