ABS-CBN launches Philippine television’s first ever “sitcom-mentary show,” “Dok Ricky, Pedia (Pedia ng Barangay)” this Saturday (September 9), 8:30 am that aims to educate mothers on proper nutrition and childcare for growing families.

 

A project of the ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation, Inc. (ALKFI) and the National Nutrition Council (NNC), the program features actor Dominic Ochoa, who will play a pediatrician and a single father arriving at the health clinic of the fictional Barangay Masigla to help the community care for its babies and children.

 

What makes the program different and special is that it will insert commentary courtesy of the NNC to further educate viewers on the importance of good health among children and tips in child-rearing.

 

According to the NNC, one out of four pregnant women is nutritionally at risk and 33% of children in the Philippines are stunted or short for their age, due to poor nutrition and bad habits in child care.  Studies also show that malnutrition can be prevented in 1, 000 days of the child, a period when parents can bring out their child’s full potential.

 

Joining Dominic in the cast of this groundbreaking program are Louise Abuel, who plays his son Johann, Lotlot Bustamante as Kapitana, who initially doubts the capability of a male doctor to do the job, and Teacher Julia, played by Yen Santos. Adding to the dynamic cast of characters is Tatang, played by Raul Morit, regarded as Barangay Masigla’s wise old man, and the loveteam of Kristel Fulgar and CJ Navato, who will play Trixie and Thor.

 

ALKFI, is a committed advocate for public service and a manifestation of ABS-CBN’s commitment “To be in the service of the Filipino.” Since 1989, it has been at the forefront of development programs that uniquely affect strategic sectors in the Philippines – each one with distinct goals and considerable impact. ALKFI is also behind the show “G Diaries,” which promotes Philippine tourism and caring for the environment.

 

Don’t miss “Dok Ricky, Pedia (Pedia ng Barangay)” every Saturday, 8:30am on ABS-CBN and ABS-CBN HD. For more information, visit the ALKFI website www.abs-cbnfoundation.com or follow ALKFI on Facebook (@abscbnfoundationkapamilya) and Twitter (@ABSCBNLKFI).

Mapapanood na sa ABS-CBN ang kauna-unahang “sitcom-mentary show” sa Philippine TV, ang “Dok Ricky, Pedia (Pedia ng Barangay)” ngayong Sabado (Setyembre 9), 8:30am na naglalayong maghatid ng impormasyon sa nutrisyon at pangangalaga sa pamilya.

 

Bida sa programang ito mula sa ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation, Inc. (ALKFI) at National Nutrition Council (NNC) ang aktor na si Dominic Ochoa, na gaganap bilang bagong pediatrician at single father sa Barangay Masigla. Ang malaking kaibahan ng programa ay ang pagkakaroon ng mga komentaryo mula sa NNC na naglalaman ng mahahalagang kaalaman para masiguro ang magandang kalusugan ng pamilya.

 

Ayon sa NNC, isa sa apat na buntis ang posibleng magkaproblema sa nutrisyon at 33% ng kabataan sa Pilipinas naman ang hindi lumalaki ng naaayon sa edad dahil sa problema sa nutrisyon. Sabi pa sa pag-aaral, maaaring mapigil ang malnutrisyon sa loob ng unang 1,000 na araw ng isang sanggol.

 

Makakasama ni Dominic sa makabagong programang ito si Louise Abuel bilang anak niyang si Johann, Lotlot Bustamante bilang Kapitana, na nagdududa sa kakayahan ng isang lalaking pediatrician tulad ni Dok Ricky, at si Teacher Julia, na gagampanan ni Yen Santos. Aabangan din ang ibang karakter tulad ng ama-amahan ng komunidad na si Tatang, na gagampanan ni Raul Morit at sina Trixie at Thor na gaganapin ng loveteam nila Kristel Fulgar at CJ Navato.
