Eight barangays out in high malnutrition incidence list

Koronadal City—Eight barangays in South Cotabato are delisted in the list of Top 20 Barangays with high number of malnourished children.

Ana Uy, Provincial Nutrition Action Officer, said the Provincial Nutrition Convergence Team identified these barangays as priority areas based on the Operation Timbang Report in 2016 for nutrition convergence implementation.

“We are happy these barangays worked harder to pull out their resources and get their children back in shape,” Uy noted.

According to the report, the five most improved barangays in Tboli are Datal Dlanag, Basag, Talcon, and Malugong.
Meanwhile, other barangays like Lampitak (Tampakan), Tinago Norala), Halilan (Lake Sebu), and Cabuling (Banga) are also out in the list this year, Uy stressed out.

“This is because of the LGU support and the barangay council’s commitment,” Uy said.
