In Belize, malnutrition has become a leading cause of many health problems especially among the younger population. And today Belize and the rest of the Caribbean region celebrating Caribbean Nutrition Day which highlights the importance that nutrition plays in healthy living. Nutritionist at the Ministry of Health Robyn Daly says promoting health is key for the reduction of chronic diseases.

Robyn Daly – Nutritionist, MOH
“Belize will be doing a nutrition seminar which we will be doing in Belmopan on Thursday to impact food service providers people that provide food like the food vendors, people that have restaurants to highlight nutrition, to look at what they are serving people, how food is prepared to influence and impact their food making decisions and choices. Currently we are in the process with our other partners to develop a food based dietary guideline. This guideline that will be for the country of Belize and it is set of principles that will guide people on healthy choices for food. You’ve heard about the United States they have their guidelines or their food pyramid, we are doing something similar but it is called food dietary guidelines so that is what we are embarking on. Secondly we have our nutrition survey, we are in Belize City right now. The survey we are checking the population looking at different nutrient deficiency that may exist. Some people may notice people coming around, the survey is countrywide but right now we are in the Belize District so we are asking for support in this initiative to help with this because it will help our country, it will also help the nutrition department in the Ministry of Health to look at nutrients are really lacking within the population.”

The Ministry and its partners in continued efforts to promote proper nutrition has implemented the FRIEND program which supports the annual secondary school nutrition quiz and Senior Steps program. The Caribbean Nutrition Day was observed under the theme “healthy eating and active living: Do a variety of Physical activity today and every day.”
