Teresita Duena, 49, a mother of four school children said her family consumes the Iron fortified NFA rice because one teacher told her about the benefits of eating the iron fortified rice.

“It is cheap yet contains iron which is good for the kids,” she said in her native Waray. Another teacher, Grace Regulacion said that she teaches the kids to prod their parents to buy it. “I teach them in Science that if we lack iron, we are easily tired and our memory is affected, students can be great advocates, because they believe their teachers,” she shared. In the country, iron deficiency anemia is a serious public health problem that NFA devised iron fortification to the staple rice. “Everyday, people no matter how poor eat rice, so the presence of iron in rice ensures that,” said Alva Gadin, Samar Provincial Nutritionist.
