One of the things my kids dread everyday is me cornering them; pushing them to gulp down brownish syrupy fluid I like to call Vitamin C.

***

In this age and time, fast-moving people tend to rely on fast-moving food aka the unhealthy almost non-nutrient fast food, and our household is no exemption. We try to eat healthier at home, but there really are circumstances when time isn’t in our side and fast food is a friend. Hence, we don’t normally get the proper portion of vitamins including Vitamin C that we should be getting from the food we eat.

And so are the kids.

Plus, like I mentioned earlier, the brownish syrupy fluid wasn’t exactly mouth-watering.

Did you know? Aside from Vitamin E, the body use and drain Vitamin C everyday.

Pororo is one of the worldwide famous cartoon series and character that originated in South Korea, and Pororo Korea presented quality multivitamin supplements for kids in the form of fun, eco-friendly chewable tablets.

One of the things I noticed when I showed my kids Vital C is that they don’t tear down the packaging right away. They appreciate the colorful illustrations first, Clyde made me read out the Hangul characters. He even got his notebook and pencil, and tried copying the characters on a paper. When done with satisfaction, he finally ask what’s inside and how does it taste.

Main Ingredients includes:

밀크칼슘, 유산균, 자일리톨, 비타민 C (Milk calcium, lactic acid, xylitol and vitamin C)

This cute Multivitamins is definitely an eye catcher, made for kids and kids-with-Pororo-at-heart! I like that it’s not sweet, it’s sourly-sweet and I thought Dave won’t dig into this, but alas, the toddler has a tooth for sourly treats, I need to hide it from Dabibot, or else he’ll consume them all in one sitting.

Being a mom starts from conceiving, or bringing up a child with care and affection even if they’re not your own… but once you are a mom, you’ll be a lifetime mom, for it doesn’t stop from feeding, burping, changing diapers, making sure they eat thrice a day and keeping them away from cold and flu.. not even after sending them to preparatory school and later to universities. Motherhood, it’s way more than that.

This event was not about the baby, nor the toddler, nor the teenager; it’s all about the mommy. Surprisingly refreshing, the event break one of the oldest wives tale ever told, shattering the huge proverbial glass wall into tiny insignificant fragments

that good mothers shouldn’t have time for themselves because they’re too busy taking care of her family and home.

Read on and that raised eyebrow and sarcastic glare will turn into a slow but steady nod making your lips smile involuntarily…

Here’s why parents should encourage kids to drink more water

In the Philippines, there is a growing rate1 in children obesity from age zero to 10 years old, and this is mainly attributed to the consumption of processed food that is high in sugar and fat alongside an inactive lifestyle.

18718328_1744382088908477_217738397_n.jpg

Among the number of drink alternatives available today, Absolute Distilled Drinking Water understands that serving kids with plain water, instead of sweetened or flavored drinks, is quite an uphill battle for parents. But building on this habit earlier on will encourage kids to develop the good foundations of healthy eating.

Absolute encourages parents to start building the culture of hydration at home by being good example. So here’s a rundown of why you and your kids should start the habit of drinking water today.

1. Hydration
The body loses about eight cups of water every day. This lost water needs to be replaced to avoid discomforts such as nausea, headaches, muscle cramps, and ultimately dehydration. Sweetened drinks don’t really re-hydrate the body as efficiently as water. In fact, fizzy drinks make the body lose more water by stimulating urine production. So, when it comes to water replenishment, nothing beats water.

2. Weight watch
Sugary drinks are loaded with calories and of course, sugar. Studies have found links to prevalent child obesity and flavored drinks, which is why some schools have mandated bans on such. If you want your child to maintain a healthy weight, limit their intake of sweetened drinks and get them to opt for water to quench their thirst.

3. Sugar and tooth decay
Sugary drinks make it easy for bacteria to grow inside the mouth. Bacteria feed on the sugar and create enamel-damaging acids in the process. Water, on the other hand, has natural elements that strengthen the teeth, making them less susceptible to damage from plaque and sugars.

4. Poor appetite
Consuming too much sweetened drinks has shown to affect a kid’s appetite. If a healthy diet is top priority, make sure they only consume sugary drinks occassionally, and more importatnyl to establish water as the first choice when they are thirsty.

5. Healthy and inexpensive
On top of it being calorie-free and with tons of health benefits, water is inexpensive compared to sweetened or flavored drinks.
There is more to water for everyone, but one thing is clear: water is better than any other drink alternative. To encourage your kids to love drinking water, educate them on its benefits and how it functions in their bodies. Always make it available and accessible to them, and make it drinking water a fun occasion for the family.

Absolute Drinking Water, in its mission to encourage kids to drink more water, has collaborated with The Walt Disney Company Philippines to launch kiddie water bottles with the iconic Disney characters on them. This is to promote the value of water hydration and make it an exciting and fun choice over sweteened drinks.

Get your kids to love and be excited about drinking water by giving them the Absolute Disney kiddie water bottles.

#gerilenmbf: SPAM CAN’s #ALL4SPAM

Aside from the irrelevant lottery winnings (that I wished I could believe), explicitly inappropriate proposals (that sadly didn’t help in upraising my self-esteem), and inherited riches to-be-claimed (that I wish I could legally declare) messages I consistently receive on my spam folder, when I hear the word SPAM, I spontaneously remember the shiny aluminum cans we get from huge, heavy, full-of-stamps, amoy-imported balikbayan boxes from relatives abroad and grandparents in Hawaii! And I will no longer wonder why because

Did You Know?

1 Hawaii eats seven million cans of SPAM products every year! (to think that it was small islets of land grouped together)

2 Hawaii’s largest festival every year is SPAM JAM! (and I thought pineapple was the rave in that island!)

3 I finally realized, Hawaii with it’s SPAM madness, is the perfect #SPAMSquadGoals!

My stomach involuntarily growls, and my mouth reflexively salivates as I vividly recall the sweet whiff of delicious ellipsoidal pink meat fried to a crisp – just the way I like it.

SPAM®

This delicious American icon and global brand launched in 1937 as “The Meat of Many Uses!” and the world quickly ate it up. It was the arrival of WWII, and the need for easily transported & protein that did not need refrigeration, that fueled the SPAM® brand’s incredible growth around the world. Today, with over a dozen varieties sold in more than 40 countries, this 80 year old brand continues to ignite invention all over the world.

The first ever activation event of SPAM® CAN in the Philippines was held last March 20 at the Glorietta Activity Center. It was led by Senior Brand Manager of SPAM® Brand, Hormel Foods International Division of Hormel Foods Corporation, Ms. Jaynee Sherman comfortably saniched (sandwiched) in between these SPAM.
