SUPPLEMENTARY FEEDING PROGRAM
Supplementary Feeding Program is the provision of food in addition to the regular meals to children currently enrolled in the Child Development Centers and Supervised Neighborhood Play as part of the DSWD’s contribution to the Early Childhood Care and Development (ECCD) program of the government.
The food supplementation will be in a form of hot meals to be served during snack or meal time to children five days a week for 120 days.
The feeding program will be managed by parents based on a prepared meal cycle using available indigenous food supplies. Children beneficiaries will be weighed at the start of the feeding and 3 months thereafter and after the completion of 120 feeding days to determine improvement and sustenance in their nutritional status.
