The Malnutrition Reduction Program (MRP) of the DOST-FNRI addresses the undernutrition problem among young children. The DOST PINOY strategy under the MRP is a package of intervention which involves direct feeding of rice-mongo based complementary foods for 6 months to below 3 years old children and nutrition education among mothers and caregivers.
