DOST Misamis Occidental brings Enhanced Packaging to Awezamiz Complementary Food

Words of gratitude and glee filled the City Mayor’s Office of Ozamiz City as the Supervising Administrative Officer of the Local Government Unit, Ms. Maria Lucy R. Cabalit together with the Ozamiz City Complementary Food Production Facility (CFPF) Head, Ms. Lelita G. Navarez received the 60,000 pieces of Rice Mongo Sesame (RMS) Baby Food Blend packaging material last 08 April 2019.

In 2016, LGU Ozamiz City was one of the beneficiaries of the DOST-Food Nutrition Research Institute (FNRI) project on the roll-out of complementary food production facility to address malnutrition of young children ages 6 to 59 months old. Ozamiz City CFPF is capable of producing RMS baby food blend for 6 to 24 months old toddlers and Rice Mongo (RM) Crunchies for 25 to 59 months old children.

To continually improve and hasten production of these complementary food products, DOST Region 10 through the Provincial Science and Technology Center of Misamis Occidental headed by Ms. Eufresnie Ann D. Simbajon extended additional support to the facility amounting to more than P300,000.00. Mechanical bean roaster and electric double deep fryer were turned over last 11 February 2019.

To compete with the existing commercial brands of baby food products in the market, DOST also provided assistance on the packaging and labelling design and initial execution of the RMS baby food blend. “Naa na gyud maka compete sa commercial brand (RMS baby food blend can now compete with the commercial brands)” Ms. Cabalit said.

To support waste management, Ms. Navarez eagerly said that discounts will be given to the next purchase of the customers who will return the used packaging materials. These will then be utilized to produce eco bags, wallets and other novelty materials.

The Local Government Unit of Ozamiz City was grateful to DOST’s assistance.

“DOST are the people behind the scene”, Ms. Cabalit added with sincere gratitude. (Joanne Katherine R. Banaag, DOST-X)

Science Camp in Davao highlights why “water is life”

The Climate Science Youth Camp (CSYC), one of the science promotion projects of the Department of Science and Technology-Science Education Institute (DOST-SEI), tackles a very timely issue with this year’s theme: H2O: Highlands to Oceans “Water is Life”.

The science camp is an annual “summer” event of the DOST-SEI. For its 2019 run on April 24 – May 3, campers will explore the Island Garden City of Samal in Davao del Norte.

Participants, composed of 40 high school students and 20 science teachers from various high schools in Region XI (Compostela Valley, Davao del Norte, Davao del Sur, Davao Occidental, Davao Oriental, and Davao City), will experience “camp life” and spend time in the hills and beaches of the island learning about the hydrological cycle and climate change.

The basic concepts of the hydrological cycle and climate change will be taught using fun, interactive learning modules prepared by some of the country’s top young scientists from the University of the Philippines-Marine Science Institute (UP-MSI) and the National Institutes of Geological Sciences (UP-NIGS) who will also act as camp facilitators.

Topics ranging from basic properties of water to global distribution of water, tracing the water cycle, and watersheds, as well as issues in climate change such as climate of the Philippines and global warming, will be emphasized in the event. Participants will undertake actual community-based research, make their own assessments and formulate recommendations on possible measures for disaster mitigation and adaptation purposes based on the knowledge they gained from the camp.

DOST-SEI Director Dr. Josette Biyo is confident that CSYC will once again contribute to SEI’s vision of developing a pool of highly competitive S&T workforce in the country.

“The science camp perfectly complements our S&T scholarship programs. It’s always a delight to see our students’ interest in science ignited after their immersion in the camp and to see them inspired in starting their S&T careers with the challenges of their own communities on top of their minds,” Dr. Biyo said.

Since its 2013 run, the science camp has been bridging the basics of climate science and the technology of hazards assessment and reduction with the concepts of innovation and leadership among public high school students. (30)
