Did you know that undernutrition is affecting kids in the Philippines at a very alarming rate?
Undernutrition is defined as an “insufficient intake of energy and nutrients to meet an individual’s needs to maintain good health.” According to findings from The World Bank published in 2021, micronutrient undernutrition affects 38% of Filipino infants 6 to 11 months old and 26% of Filipino children who are 12 to 23 months old (roughly 1 to 2 years old).
What Causes Micronutrient Undernutrition?
Although it’s true that intake of unhealthy or inappropriate food can be a factor for micronutrient undernutrition in Filipino kids, it’s important to understand why this happens.
Statistics from 2021 showed that an estimated 26.14 million Filipinos live below the poverty line. Many are unable to afford nutrient-dense food choices, and settle for options that aren’t as healthy but can make them feel full.
A lot of Filipino families also lack access to quality healthcare. For some families, vitamins and medicines that are needed to support a growing child’s needs can be costly. As a result, these essential items aren’t heavily prioritized, resulting in a negative domino effect wherein kids become at risk for undernutrition, and prone to sickness.
As more and more kids are venturing outdoors, and with the Department of Education (DepED) beginning to allow face-to-face classes in some schools, it’s crucial that all kids get the nourishment they need especially to help support their immunity so that they are not sickly.
