When I received an invite from Ceelin Plus for a campaign launch, I just couldn’t say no.. even if I had to rush to Divisoria that day (run out party supplies and for online letterhead printing inspiration). I am glad I attended the said event, I learned so much about growth and immunity that day.
Ceelin Plus launches “Kontra Sakit, Kontra Liit” campaign. It is a campaign that promotes strong immunity and how it is related to growth stunting. United Nations Development Programme recent findings showed that the Philippines has the second highest incidence of stunting in Southeast Asia. This findings was supported by a Food and Nutrition Research Institute (DOST-FNRI) study in 2011 on the nutritional status of Filipino children where it’s been found that 3 in every 10 Filipino child, ages 0-5 years old, are stunted for their age.
Growth stunting, according to health experts who graced the event, is caused by two main factors: malnutrition and recurrence of illness or infections. This two main factors can slow down the growth and can lead to linear growth retardation.
Buti na lang, Ceelin Plus “Kontra Sakit, Kontra Liit” campaign provides a solution for this growing health concern:
The “Kontra Sakit, Kontra Liit” campaign promoted preventive vitamin C and zinc supplementation among children for strong immunity resulting in normalized growth and thereby prevent growth stunting.
According to health experts, Vitamin C forms part of the body’s natural immune system and stimulates the activity of antibodies and immune cells while zinc is required for the normal development and maintenance of the immune system. The children will greatly benefit from regular intake.
