The 39th Manila International Book Fair (2018) is open and booklovers are excited!
Once again, book shoppers have the opportunity to add titles to their personal
libraries and buy books to give as gifts to their loved ones.
For OMF Literature, the leading publisher and distributor of Christian books in the
Philippines, this is the time to introduce new books to readers who are looking for
inspiration, instruction, and insight.
With the theme “Turn to the Word,” OMF Lit aims to highlight the fact that all the books they publish, distribute, and import have one unifying purpose: to make people look to
God and His Word.
According to the 2015 Updating of the Nutritional Status of Filipinos developed by the Food and Nutrition Research Institute of the Philippines (FNRI), 1 out of every 3 children in the Philippines aged 5 to 10 is suffering from stunted growth. Similarly, 1 out of every 3 children aged 5 to 10 years old is underweight.
The World Health Organization (WHO) defines stunted growth as the “failure to reach one’s full potential for growth.” Poor nutrition is one of the many causes of this. This can also result to being underweight or when a child weighs less than the average for their age and height.
Stunted growth as well as being underweight are problems that should not be ignored. If not addressed early, stunted growth may lead to lost productivity and opportunities, and to nutrition-related diseases later in life.
Taking the lead in this campaign is Alaska’s new Alaska Fortified Powdered Milk Drink which is loaded with Vitamin D, it’s also high in calcium and iron and a good source of protein. Milk has always been essential for growing children to have enough and consistent nutrient intake to ensure maximum growth potential. That is why Alaska Fortified Powdered Milk Drink, combined with proper nutrition and an active lifestyle, will help children reach the “tamang tangkad at bigat” (right height and weight) for their age.
