Milk bars product launched in Murcia town
Negros Occ. (9 June) -- Gov. Isidro Zayco was the guest during the milk bars launching held in Murcia Central Elementary School, recently.
About 700 pupils were given samples of milk bars with the theme,"Gatas para sa Kaalam kag Ikaayong Lawas."
The project were sponsored by the Provincial Dairy Development Board, Provincial Veterinary Office and Negros Occidental Federation of Dairy Cooperatives.
Vicente Bitolinamisa III of the National Dairy Authority informed the students of the benefits they will get from drinking milk everyday rather that those less nutritious drinks. He stressed that the milk bars, which are made from the fresh milk produced at the Provincial Dairy Farm, contain nutrients necessary for a child's growth.
Gov. Isidro Zayco disclosed that the milk bars will also be made available to other elementary schools in the whole province. (PIA/cad) [top]
