Nutrition Awareness For Kids

I believe nutrition awareness should start at home first and since school is the second home of our children, they should also promote and encourage healthy eating habits of their students. School programs can help children attain full educational and healthy eating habits by giving social support.

Happy nanay here kasi sa school ng kids ko no need to pay for an expensive costumes and Principal always encourage parents to be creative. Last year, we created hat out of recycled milk boxes and my husband helped sa drawing. See below photo from my instagram: Laking tipid dba? Art papers lang at glue okay na.


Year 2016 Nutrition Awareness

For this year, 2017 I prepared face mask, see below:

Star Apple and Pineapple Face Mask

There are ways on how we can promote healthy eating habits in school or at home.

  1. I am preparing home cooked meals for my children and to make more fun, I am creating bento for kids. 
  2. Let the children know the effects of junk food consumption.
  3. Healthy snacks or meals should be served in school.
  4. Let the children bring at least 1 fruit for each meal, cutting them into pieces will help.
  5. Follow the food pyramid, consists of Grow, Go and Glow.
  6. Be a role model to your children by drinking and eating fruits and vegetables.
  7. Do not skip breakfast.


Let’s promote healthy eating habits to our children.

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.”

Elledi Philippines: The Everyday Baon Dilemma

School baon preparation can be a daunting task for any parent, as it involves not only meal planning for the week, but making sure your child will come home with an empty lunch box and a full tummy. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have to be a struggle and you don’t have to lose sleep over it. Here are some things to keep in mind when planning your kid’s baon:

Aim for Variety
A good mix of nutritious home-cooked meals and grab-and-go snacks. Involve your child in the baon planning, take this time as a good opportunity to teach him the value of food and eating right. Ask what he would like to eat at school and you can even take him to supermarket runs with you. This will encouraged them to finish their food at school, knowing how much effort and love it takes to prepare the baon.

Prep the Night Before
Set aside a portion from last night’s ulam for a healthy home-cooked meal. This will save you time and money, and help you avoid geting frazzled wth the early morning scurry.
Baon suggestions: Adobo, Kare-Kare, Sinigang, Arroz ala Cubana, Afritada

Be Creative
Lunchbox ideas can quickly cycle. Repeating the same kind of ulam on a weekly basis may help create that easy prep routine for you, but it may not be appetizing on your child’s taste buds, and that yummy fritata can easily end up as that boring fritata in your child’s mind. So it’s always good to make creative and fun baon choices. Recess snacks don’t always mean sandwiches. It doesn’t have to be plain ‘ol boring bread and jam. You can experiment, consider how colors and textures also influence your child’s eating habits.

Moderation is Key
Yes, our aim as parents is to always go for the healthy variety, but it wouldn’t hurt to squeeze in a sweet treat or two within the school week. Ask your child what store-bought item he would like to find inside his lunch box? It could be a doughnut, a sugary juice brick or a box of cookies. As long as most of your food choices for your kids are healthy ones, they can occasionally enjoy a nice dessert.


Recess baon suggestions: Doughnuts, Elledi wafers, Elledi roll breaks, cupcakes, ChipNChips Potato Chips, brownies, Elledi Frollkao, Ube hopia and apple pie.

Don’t sweat it, Mom and Dad!

The good thing about grab-and-go treats is you can simply stow them inside the lunch box real quick, you get the baon prep done just before the school service arrives.

Overall, parents are not given their due when it comes to getting lunchboxes done. It’s hard work. It is. And you’ll be doing it ’til your kid graduates or until he decides he is big enough to make his own. And on certain days, some school lunches maybe more meticulously prepared than others, and some baons maybe are just simple store-bought snacks, but the important thing here, is that your kid know that mom and dad prep their baon out of love.
