Last November 19, social tourism enterprise MAD (Make A Difference) Travel in partnership with Human Heart Nature organized a Kids Camp for children aged between 5 and 12 at the GK Enchanted Farm. Children got involved in a series of hands-on activities, from farming, feeding the pigs, peanut butter making competitions with First Harvest to stitching their own stuffed toys with Plush & Play, bread making & designing cookies with Make Peace Bakery.

These fun activities help to connect the children to nature through experiential learning. “Through farming, animal feeding and planting, the kids will get a better idea of where their food comes from, and how important it is that we develop agriculture in a sustainable way,” Raf Dionisio, the co-founder of MAD Travel, explains. The kids had fun exploring & learning in the outdoors without their parents having to worry about mosquito bites, too! Each camper got a DEET-free Bug Shield Oil Spray by Human Nature, the first Asian brand to receive a Sustainable Beauty Award from Organic Monitor.

“With many of the activities centered around social enterprises based at the farm, children will also be given a fun introduction to social enterprise and see how business can serve not only to enrich ourselves, but to make the world a better place” Raf explains.

For children growing up in the age of iPads and video games, it is an opportunity for them to have fun outdoors and interact with kids from different backgrounds, including scholars from Gawad Kalinga communities, who will join them in certain activities.

For its part, Human Nature emphasizes that children need to be encouraged to “step away from the screens and into the sunlight” to become fully understand the world around them. Human Nature partnered with MAD Travel because it believes that the Kids Camp is a creative and fun way of teaching children about environmental sustainability and serving the poor.

Raf, who through MAD Travel has developed other eco- and social tourism initiatives across the country, believes in the importance of outdoor camps because they had such an impact on him as a child: “Thanks to the kids camps I attended, I really grew to love the countryside. Holding these camps at the Enchanted Farm can hold an even greater significance: through bringing together kids from vastly different backgrounds, we hope to inspire not only a future generation of successful people, but nation builders, too.”

The Kids Camp takes place at the GK Enchanted Farm in Angat, Bulacan every month. The farm, surrounded by 40-hectares of land, is already hub for social entrepreneurs and volunteers coming from across the world. With high quality facilities such as a spa and an infinity pool, it is also a relaxing and inspiring destination for the entire family.

Upcoming Kids Camp schedule:  January 14, February 11, March 11, April 15

Registration fee is Php 2,200/head including farm-fresh lunch, (2) snacks, Human Nature Bug Shield Spray, and all activities in the itinerary. Round-trip transportation is available upon request.

San Pedro BBQ Sauce at Iba pa! An addition to Filipino’s Staple!

Manila, Philipppines, November 18, 2016 – After 10 years of testing, San Pedro BBQ Sauce at Iba pa! has finally engaged in sharing their delicious blend to the public.

It was initially an attempt to come up with a small business of selling barbeque on the streets until people started requesting for buying marinated meat whenever the BBQ store is closed. This triggered the idea of selling the yummy fusion in a bottle.

Salty and sweet with a kick of pepper is the best way to define the San Pedro BBQ Sauce ATBP! experience.

Directions for Use:
One bottle of San Pedro BBQ Sauce Atbp! can be used for a max of 1 & ½ KG meat. You can use pork, chicken or steak. Pour in 2/3 of the thick sauce to the meat for a minimum of 1 hour or overnight. Mix the remaining sauce with a small amount of cooking oil and use it for basting. Turn and baste it on both sides while cooking.

Some have tried using it for shrimp dip or as ramen sauce but Salmon is the most recent successful combination. That’s the reason why we named it “San Pedro BBQ Sauce at Iba pa!”. You can experiment on whichever food you want to use it with.

We will donate 5 pesos for every bottle sold to cancer patients.

Shelf life is 1 year.

Product Movement:

The owners had no idea that people would become obsessed with this divine delicacy and that it could earn more attention than they could ever imagine. Recently, an offer to manufacture it in the US and Australia is the best news they have received. Indeed, it’s a very promising

Ingredients:
Purified Water, Soy Bean Extract, Sea Salt, Black Pepper and Caramel.

Herbalife Nutrition At Work: Active Workplace Environment

While the survey conducted reveals that more Filipino millennials are engaging in regular physical activities outside work, they find it difficult to maintain a healthy, active lifestyle in the modern workplace.

13224128_1219749891379789_958177819_o
PHILIPPINES, October 27, 2016 – Herbalife Nutrition, a global nutrition company, has released the findings from its Asia Pacific Millennials At Work Survey1, which revealed that Filipino millennials are adapting a healthy, active lifestyle, however, most believe their current workplace environment prevents them from doing so.

Millennials, or people born in between 1980 and 2000, are opting for a workplace that will encourage them to stay active, if only this will be embedded in every company culture. About 83 percent or eight (8) in 10 millennials have agreed that they would like their company workplace to adopt a healthy, active lifestyle.

With the millennial generation expected to make up 50 percent of the global workforce by 2020, ensuring the wellbeing of millennials will be important to improving workplace productivity. “There are about 35 million millennials now in the Philippines, which is about one-third of the country’s entire population. Five years from now, millennials will be dominating the labor force. While most millennials want to lead healthy lives, they face real obstacles at work in doing so,” said Rosalio Valenzuela, Herbalife Philippines General Manager. “At Herbalife Nutrition, we provide our employees with nutrition products at work, subsidize gym memberships, hold regular wellness programs related to nutrition and well-being, and encourage participation in outdoor activities and sports competitions.”

Additionally, the survey findings revealed the following:
⦁ Seven (7) out of 10 millennials strive to live healthy, active lives
⦁ However, the majority of millennials find it challenging to maintain an active lifestyle at work – eight (8) out of 10 millennials spend 6 to 13 hours at their work desk each day, and 64% of millennials get less than 30 minutes of physical activity – including standing, stretching and walking at work on an average work day.
⦁ Additionally, 64% of millennials cited the “lack of time” as the key obstacle to engaging in physical activity at work.

To provide tips on how millennials and their employers can integrate positive nutrition and life style habits at their workplaces, Herbalife Nutrition has organized a sixth Asia Pacific Wellness Tour, which builds upon the successes of the past five tours that welcomed over 100, 000 participants. Five experts from the Herbalife Nutrition Advisory Board (NAB) are scheduled to tour 21 Asian cities from October 7 to 30, to hold a series of talks, workshops and medical symposia across the region.

“Through these efforts, we hope to equip organizations and employees with the right tools to collectively build a healthier work environment across Asia Pacific,” said Valenzuela.

Julian Alvarez Garcia, M.D., Ph.D., a member of the Herbalife Nutrition Advisory Board, will be visiting Manila for the Asia Pacific Wellness Tour this October. Julian Alvarez Garcia, M.D., Ph.D. will also be sharing expert advice on how millennials can adopt simple positive nutrition and lifestyle habits at work to improve their overall well-being in the long run.

Some of the tips to help foster a healthier millennial workforce include:

⦁ Nutrition

⦁ Dedicate a healthy eating day each week and get colleagues involved in making healthy choices for lunch on this day.
⦁ Boost water intake to help the body digest food, rid the body of toxins, and help deliver nutrients to the cells. Drink at least eight (8) glasses or two (2) liters of water a day.
⦁ Have a protein shake combined with non-fat milk and healthy fruit for breakfast. With 20-30 grams of protein and low-fat contents, it can provide the body with all the nutrition it needs to power through the day.

⦁ Active Living

⦁ Create a playlist that incorporates upbeat music and play with hourly intervals.
⦁ Use Running Apps to keep energized and on-pace during regular runs.
⦁ Set a goal to join running competitions to motivate self to sustain an active lifestyle.

Herbalife’s Millennials At Work Survey was conducted in 2016, with 5,500 respondents aged 18 and above, from Australia, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.

Healthy Upbringing according to Danica Sotto – Pingris

Parents know that their children’s health is of utmost importance. They would do anything and everything in their power to ensure that their kids are always well-protected from any kind of sickness or ailment. Just like any other parent in the world, this is the number one priority for celebrity mom, Danica Sotto – Pingris. When it comes to her two kids, Aniella Micaela and Jean Michel, Danica secures their well-being with a healthy and active lifestyle.

Importance of Health
For Danica, it’s incredibly important to instill in her kids the practice of healthy living. “As early as now we want our kids to know that they should be mindful of what they eat and how to take care of their bodies,” she explains. Although, the actress admits that she sometimes allows her kids to eat sweets and other treats, she makes sure it’s taken in moderation.

The couple actuates this belief by engaging their kids in various activities that’ll help work up their heart and strengthen their bodies. Danica adds, “We engage our kids in sports like basketball, gymnastics and ice skating. They also sometimes join us when we go for short jogs around the village.” Danica believes that by doing this, she and Marc will be able to strengthen their children’s resistance against sickness – “Living an active and healthy lifestyle will help us live longer, decrease our risks from certain illnesses or cancers.”

She encourages moms everywhere to continuously promote healthy living within their respective families. She even went so far as to give mothers everywhere some tips as to how they can achieve this:

♥ Create healthy habits for your children.

♥ Enjoy meals with them and engage yourself in some of their activities.

♥ Take care of yourself, [because] a healthy mom is a happy mom.

In addition to all of this, Danica suggests giving your children the ideal Vitamin C supplement. In her case, she has chosen to give her children the most awaited Sodium Ascorbate Vitamin C supplement for kids from the makers of FERN-C,– FERN-C kidz!

Choosing FERN-C kidz

Danica chose to give her children a Vitamin C supplement that allows them to keep up with their day-to-day activities, as well as, give them that extra protection from sickness and disease. Danica exclaims, “I’m so happy that I’ve discovered a Vitamin C supplement that helps boost my kids’ immunity and because they have a really good Vitamin C [supplement], they don’t easily get sick.” Because FERN-C kidz is made with the same Sodium Ascorbate found in the Subok Na brand, FERN-C, it is safe for children to take on a daily basis and you are assured of its quality. More than that, each bottle of FERN-C kidz is marked with the Quali-C seal, which certifies it of quality and effectivity. This ensures every mom out there, including Danica, that this Vitamin C supplement is safe, secure and efficient. FERN-C kidz also contains Zinc for added protection. Danica says this ingredient assures her of her children’s resistance against sickness. That’s why Danica can now say that her children have a “stronger immune system” and are not “sakitin.”

Lastly, FERN-C kidz comes in a delicious orange flavor, which makes it easier for kids to take and enjoy. Danica even says that her kids enjoy drinking their Vitamin C supplement. “Mic and Caela love their Vitamin C [supplement]. They even remind us that it’s time to take FERN-C kidz,” she expounds.

Over-all, Danica is satisfied with her decision to promote a healthy, active lifestyle with her kids. She’s even happier now that she’s got FERN-C kidz to help support her goal of letting her children live a positive, active and healthy life.

So, moms, now’s the time to start instilling a healthy and active lifestyle among your children. To do that, you’ll need the help of a Vitamin C supplement that’ll ensure your children’s protection and resilience, FERN-C kidz. Because with FERN-C kidz, your children will truly be “resistensaya, lusog-saya.”

FERN-C kidz is now available in leading drugstores, supermarkets, convenience stores and Fern kiosks nationwide. FERN-C kidz is from the makers of FERN-C and a quality product of FERN.

Biobita Food Supplement Granules Review

Biobita Food supplement granules was prescribed by our Pediatrician 4 years ago when my daughter suffered from Diarrhea. She recommended this to help my child’s digestive problem. Probiotics are live bacteria that are good for our health, specifically our digestive system. Our body is full of good and bad bacteria and Probiotics are the good ones. Though we can find them in some foods.

What is Probiotic?

It literally means “for life”.By definition, a probiotic is a live microbial food supplement which beneficially affects the body by improving its intestinal microbial balance.

There is a good bacteria, beneficial bacteria along with pathogenic or bad bacteria, live on our skin, mouths and gastrointestinal tract. More than 400 different species of bacteria have been estimated to make their homes within our bodies.

Why are Probiotics good for your child?

Probiotics are important because they help combat the effects of infections, poor diet and tiredness which very often wipe out healthy bacteria. This may lead to constipation or diarrhea or more serious conditions.

Probiotics help improve their intestinal tract to nurture your child’s immune system and prevent maldigestion and under nutrition.

They make your children’s digestive healthy like after taking antibiotics, probiotics replace them. It helps balance the good bacteria over bad ones.

Overall Impression:

Diana was 2 years old then when she started taking Biobita, her digestive system improved and recovered from diarrhea few days after. Yvan tried using it (due to constipation), after a couple of days Yvan’s poop condition somehow change, it becomes softer a bit. We are still testing it and give it like more weeks to see the improvement. I give Biobita twice a day. Breakfast and at night. Will keep this post updated.

I mix it with their milk or water. It is tasteless.

Yes, because Biobota helps aid digestion of my children and their immunity as well.
