ANG MAKABAGONG PAGBABALIK NG NUTRIBUN
SMC Brings Back Nutribun
San Miguel Corporation rekindles the production of vitamin-packed Nutribun. This is for distribution to charitable groups and critical Metro Manila communities. Priorities are families that have either no access to, or unable to afford, food amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Ferdinand Marcos and Nutribun
A golden-ager pro or anti – Ferdinand Marcos can automatically recall that the Nutribun is classic when it comes to the nutritional provision in schools during the late President Marcos regime. The ingredients originally came from USAID. The Marcos administration produces the bread in 1975. Scientists from the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University during the late 1960s and early 1970s put this together. This is to overcome childhood malnutrition in the Philippines.
Mayors Adopted the Nutribun Concept
Mayors Isko Moreno of Manila and Marcelino Teodoro of Marikina revive the Nutribun concept earlier on. Yorme as Mayor Isko is popularly known said that the power bread serves as his motivation to attend school classes every day from Monday to Friday. A worthwhile memory that he can share with the children of his constituents today.
