THE Department of Social Welfare and Development in Central Visayas culminated this year’s Family Week celebration with the indigent families last September 30 in Cebu City.

The half-day event was led by the Garay Family of Barangay Can-upao, Jagna, Bohol. The family is this year’s Huwarang Pantawid Pamilya Regional Winner and is among the top five finalists for the national search.

The family composed of Vicente (father), Marissa (mother) together with their seven children Ivy, Mary Rose, Aria Venice, Lee Mark, Vic Jun, Prince Mikko and Vincent Ian shared their experience and best practices before going to Manila to attend the national awarding on October 1.

Meanwhile, the culminating program featured talks on proper nutrition highlighting Pinggang Pinoy by DSWD-7 Nutrition officer Melina Cañares and Responsible Parenthood by Family Development Session focal person Emmalyn Morada.

Pinggang Pinoy is a food guide that uses a familiar food plate model to convey the right food group proportions on a per-meal basis and meet the body’s energy and nutrient needs.

Responsible Parenthood topic underscored the shared responsibility of the husband and the wife to determine and achieve the desired number, spacing, and timing of their children according to their own family life aspirations.

This year’s family week celebration had the theme “Matatag na Pamilya, Maunlad na Bukas.”
