Cebu province registered a 10.51 percentage of malnourished pre-school children to rank second in Central Visayas. Cebu Provincial Nutrionist Gloria Dacalos blamed poverty exacerbated by large families and unemployment as factors contributing the malnutrition problem in Cebu province.

In the province, Negros Oriental tops the list with 11.88 percent, with Bohol third with 9.89 percent and Siquijor fourth with 9.82 percent. Mission said only 18 percent of the total 44 towns in Cebu province have active nutrition councils while Bohol province’s nutrition councils in all its 47 municipalities are active.

Considering this statistics on nutrition, the College of Nursing of University of Cebu - Banilad included Feeeding activities in its Immersion Program as its share to alleviate the present malnutrition status among children in the province especially in the City of Naga where students spent their summer conducting health-related programs and activities.
