II. PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Hunger and malnutrition among school-age partnership for child development children are significant deterrents to school progress and to current and future good health. School feeding programs can be an important component of school-based health programs designed to ameliorate these problems. By adopting the recommendations presented here, countries can help to ensure that feeding program contribute to children attaining their full educational potential and good health. Education and learning depend on good nutrition and health. Nutritional and health status are powerful influences on a childs learning and on how well a child performs in school. Children who lack certain nutrients in their diet (particularly iron and iodine), or who suffer from protein-energy malnutrition, hunger, parasitic infections or other diseases, do not have the same potential for learning as healthy and well-nourished children. Weak health and poor nutrition among school-age children diminish their cognitive development either through physiological changes or by reducing their ability to participate in learning experiences - or both.
Barangay 24 Day Care Center provides support programs that ensure total development and protection of children. The center caters to 55 children of the Barangay 24, Batangas City with age brackets between 3 to 6 years old who are all attending weekday classes. The proposal have come up with certain issues regarding what we observed based on their situation. First, parents are now dependable on processed good that were easily both on malls and markets. No one had brought a food that was cooked and prepared by their mothers. The proponents had appreciated the effort of parents that buying goods in mall is more convenient than preparing food at home. However, the health of the children is at risk. Children may be prone on sickness. Second, the enjoyment felt by children every time they eat junk food and soft drinks. Were all worried about the growing demand of children in eating junk foods rather than fruits and vegetables. It is, therefore, that the proponents aim to propose the project Wealthy Nation lies on the Health of its Nation: Improving Healthy Lifestyle through Proper Eating Habits and Diet in hope of renewing the culture of treasuring the health of every child for they will be the future steward of nation. The project also aims to give parents a new perspective of right and convenient food which is appropriate to their growing children. The eight feeding session that the proponents will be conducting would make sure of bringing children a perspective of life based on fruits and vegetables. Our Feeding program in Barangay 24 Day Care Center can also help in contributing to the norms of our government to reduce and erase clearly the number of children whom experiencing hunger and famine due to poverty. The proponents would exert their full effort of upbringing a healthy lifestyle for wealthy nation lies on the health of its nation. B. OBJECTIVESThe general objectives of our program are:i. to improve nutritional health of the studentsii. to stimulate regular attendance at schoolsiii. to enhance broader development initiatives andiv. To introduce nutrition education to the students as well as to the parents so that they can practice it at home.

2. Services and Assistance Offered The proponents had provided Rr Station Day Care Children the proper and healthy foods that should be eat by the children. Weve also checked the nutritional status of the children every week from January to March to monitor if theres a change on their weight and improvement on health. Aside from giving foods and feeding them, weve also shared lessons to them and some encouragement for them to eat what weve offered. Weve also devoted ourselves to them and be a good Ates and Kuyas that they would lean on during the whole project. The Ates and Kuyas also served like the school bus of the Day Care Children for some of the children are being assisted by us in going home for us to assure their safety. The proponents also decided to give the Day Care Center a new look so we painted the Day Care Center including the chairs and tables.
