ILOILO CITY — The National Nutrition Council 6 (Western Visayas) is introducing some alternatives to mitigate the impact of the increasing prices of commodities.
In a press conference Friday, NNC-6 Director Nona Tad-y said the prices of prime commodities, especially rice, continue to increase in the region due to the August inflation rate, which accelerated to 6.4 percent.
This has (an) implication to nutrition. For every increase in the price of rice, there is a corresponding decrease in the consumption of families. So we do not want that to happen because otherwise, there will be food insecurity at home and this will also bring implication to the nutrition security among the family members, she said.
