Scarlet Snow Belo’s Swiss Discovery with Nestlé NANKID

Exploring new parts of the world is an extraordinary experience. Whether it’s a weekend trip to a beach, or heading off to another continent, there’s always something new to discover, experience and learn.

 

Imagine the excitement that Scarlet Snow Belo, daughter of Dra. Vicky Belo and Dr. Hayden Kho, experienced when she recently went on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure to the Nestle Headquarters in Switzerland. The sprawling center with breathtaking views of the Swiss Alps, is where world class products especially made for growing children are developed. Scarlet Snow excitedly explored the various rooms and instruments that were used in different scientific studies and discovered many new things in the headquarters.

Best of all, Scarlet Snow had the opportunity to meet the brilliant science experts and big bosses who work in the headquarters like Alex Keller, the Global Category Head of Nestle Infant and Growing Up Milks, and Marco Turini, Global Head for Scientific Affairs for Nestle. The experts, in turn, were happy to meet their little visitor, as they patiently explained their latest innovations to her, including how they engineered Scarlet Snow’s milk, Nestle NANKID.

 

They began with the milk formulation to explain why Nestle NANKID is adapted for kids. They showed how all the essential vitamins, minerals and DHA are present in the milk. They also taught her that there is no added sucrose (table sugar) to make sure it is a healthy choice for kids.

 

Scarlet Snow then learned that protein is one of the most important nutrients for a child’s growth and development, contributing to the building of brain, muscles, and body. The optimized protein found in Nestle NANKID is high quality, low quantity protein that is optimal for weight and development advantage.

 

But Nestle NANKID doesn’t stop at just providing the right vitamins and optimized proteins. As Scarlet Snow learned, Nestle NANKID also has probiotics! This keeps her digestive system strong and healthy as it fights the bad bacteria in her stomach.

 

Listening intently, Scarlet Snow discovered that all good things she gets from her favorite milk helps her grow up to be future ready. Childhood is all about learning, growing, and experiencing new things. Every experience contributes to a child’s

 

mental, emotional and over-all development. Along with proper nutrition, especially one that has optimized protein such as Nestle NANKID, growing children can achieve their fullest potentials. This is the message behind Scarlet Snow’s webisodes, which also emphasizes the role that parents play in reshaping the future of their growing children.

 

As parents, you possess the power to #ReShapetheFuture of your children. Watch the webisodes to see how Scarlet Snow, with the support of her parents and with NANKID, is well positioned to become the best that she can become in the future.

Rediscover the joy of eating with hands through Safeguard’s latest film

Feasting with our bare hands is probably one of the most loved of Filipino traditions. And for most Filipinos, eating with hands evokes positive thoughts, brings back great childhood memories, and even makes food taste better.

But if you are like most Filipinos, you probably have not eaten using your hands in a long time. With the convenience of utensils and hygiene concerns, most people opt not to eat with their hands anytime, anywhere. The embarrassment and self-consciousness of being caught eating with one’s hands have prevented many of us from enjoying that way of eating as often as we want.

Food 2.png

To let people rediscover the joy of eating with hands, Safeguard Philippines released a new film titled The Dinner. Starring Boy Abunda, AiAi delas Alas, Bianca Gonzalez, Tessa Prieto-Valdes, Neri Miranda, James Deakin, LA Tenorio, Drew Arellano and Chef JP Anglo, the film revolved around these showbiz personalities enjoying a full course meal of Filipino dishes with a twist— they all had to eat with their hands—as they bond over a shared heritage and reminisce how going kamayan is something that all Filipinos should be proud of.

Shot without a script and in just one take, the film captured the celebrities’ real and natural reactions to the experience of eating using their hands. The reactions ranged from pure shock to perplexion when the waiters took away their utensils.

James Deakin says, “This is the oddest thing I think I’ve ever done”, while LA Tenorio wonders, “what’s going to happen here?”.

But over the course of the dinner, as conversations break out and guests start enjoying their meal kamayan-style, the uneasiness gave way to meaningful talks and bonding.

The celebrities delved into deeper conversations and talked more about the barriers that come in the way of Filipinos eating with hands more often. Boy Abunda asked, “Ano ba mga stigmas ‘pag nagkakamay?”. Neri Miranda answered, ““Nakakahiya naman diba. Kasi grabe naman – nagugutuman? Parang ganoon.

Despite the reasons that hinder Filipinos from going kamayan, one cannot deny the fact that there is really something special when you eat with your bare hands. “The taste of food changes when you eat with your hands. Everything is about the senses, right? You have the sense of smell, taste and touch when you eat with your hands. So, the whole experience is improved” shared James Deakin.

LA Tenorio adds “Kahit after practice nagkakamayan kami. May ibang lasa eh.” This depicts how eating with your hands is a way to bond and have fun with family and friends– which was very evident when the celebrities engaged in conversations and freely ate with their hands, finishing off even licking their fingers.

Boy Abunda then told to the group, “Earlier, when we were starting, we were all so stiff. Ngayon, wala na. Hahaha!”

Apart from showing how using your hands to eat food can bring about comfort toward the people around us and make the food taste better, the film showed how clean hands enable richer experiences.

“Clean hands as a result of proper handwashing is Safeguard’s pabaon to the nation. Through our latest film, Safeguard not only recognizes the health benefits of handwashing but it also wants to remind people of the joys that eating kamayan-style can bring. It is a celebration of the Filipino heritage that is made even more worthwhile with clean hands and allows us to create richer experiences with our loved ones.” said says Alex Vogler, Associate Director, Digital Transformation & Brand Communications for Procter & Gamble’s Beauty Division in Asia Pacific.

At the end of the video, the awkward moments among the celebrities gives way to genuine camaraderie. This shows how eating using one’s bare hands can bring about a sense of goodwill and bonding over meals which makes the food taste better, and the experience more satisfying.
