CITY OF MALOLOS – The Provincial Government of Bulacan through its Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office (PSWDO) launched this year’s Nutrition Month with the theme “Kumain ng Wasto at Maging Aktibo…Push Natin ‘To” that encourages everyone to advocate for healthy diets and increased physical activity during the Monday Flag Ceremony held at the Bulacan Capitol Gymnasium here, Monday morning.
Governor Daniel R. Fernando, in his first day as the father of the province, persuaded PGB employees to prioritize their health because it is one of the primary elements to become an efficient staff.
“Tayong mga nagta-trabaho, lalo na ‘yung mga nakaupo lang sa harap ng computer mula umaga hanggang hapon, kailangan paalalahanan natin ang sarili natin na gumalaw-galaw naman kasi kailangan ito ng ating katawan. Tandaan natin na pinakamahalaga sa lahat ang ating kalusugan,” the governor said.
