Combating the double burden of malnutrition is a yearly challenge of every feeding program in elementary school. Studies have shown that proper nutrition has a direct effect on student performance in school. Thus, the feeding center of Pinagbuhatan Elementary School took step to ensure that pupils still get proper nutrition and engage in healthy lifestyle amidst pandemics. This qualitative study showed that by upgrading the existed feeding program, malnourished pupils, both underweight at overweight/obese, improved their weight and BMI. The improved system includes different activities like using index card during distribution, feeding ID, acknowledgement receipts, Zumba, webinar with lifestyle coach ets. that may seem simple yet had a significant effect in terms of having normal weights of malnourished pupils. Finally, by continuing the program in at least three years, there will be a significant improvement in nutritional status and hopefully eradicate the double burden malnutrition.
