About this agency

The National Nutrition Council (NNC), an attached agency of the Department of Health, is the countrys highest policy making and coordinating body on nutrition. Created by virtue of PD 491 in 1974, the NNC continues to adhere to its mandate in orchestrating efforts of government, private sector, international organizations and other stakeholders at all levels, in addressing hunger and malnutrition of Filipinos through: policy and program formulation and coordination; capacity development; promotion of good nutrition; nutrition surveillance; resource generation and mobilization; advocacy; and partnership and alliance building. However, this cannot be achieved by spoonfeeding alone nor by the generosity of a single sectors spoon. It requires collaboration in creating and recreating ideas; seeking unity and totality of approach toward nutritional adequacy for all Filipinos.
