Reshape your mindset, reshape the future

Raise future-ready kids in this ever-evolving world.

Failure is life’s greatest teacher but few parents want their children to experience its pains.  In today’s increasingly complex world, raising children can be a challenge for parents, most of who would not want to see their children experience difficulties.

 

Massive technological changes, changing worldviews, and constant disruptions have made the world much more complex, but these have also created ample opportunities for learning and growth.  Amidst uncertainties and continuous change, parents have to ensure that their children learn and grow from the challenges that they will inevitably encounter in their growing-up years. By developing an optimal growth mindset and adapting an optimal diet and lifestyle, parents can help set their kids up for the future.

 

Recognizing that parents need support in reshaping the future of their children, Nestlé NANKID utilizes expertise with advocacy, to help reshape the future for the next generation, with Parentology+.

 

Achieving an optimal growth mindset begins with optimal nutrition. And this year, Nestlé NANKID is giving parents the opportunity to be able to foster a holistic and continual growth of a child in all aspects—emotional, nutritional, physical, psychological, and social development, through Parentology+: The Reshape Effect Forum.

 

The forum, held last January 15 at Whitespace Makati, aimed to help parents better understand their role in reshaping the future of their children. Hosted by the Philippines’ premier talk show host, Boy Abunda, the event was joined by well-known parenting experts from the international and local scenes.

Among them were Melissa Benaroya, LICSW, a renowned parent, coach, and speaker from Costa Rica whose extensively studied the Growth Mindset movement. In addition, Melissa aims to be able to share unique strategies on raising children; Didi Manahan, MSEd, a progressive learning advocate and co-founder of Keys School Manila, where she serves as head directress, and Dr. Josephine Sunga, MD, FPPS, MSc, pediatrician and epidemiologist who champions nutrition as a key ingredient towards children’s optimal development through her research.

 

Parents and guests of the forum were also able to participate in activities that allowed them to learn practical tips and lessons on how they can nurture an optimal growth mindset within themselves and their families, thereby creating an environment that will nurture their child’s minds and hearts.

 

Some of the activities were “Reshaping Your Language”, where participants learned that adults have the power over how our language can affect kids. Phrasing statements to curiosity questions can help the kids get a feeling of being included in the decision-making.

 

In “As Easy As Riding A Bike”, guests were asked to reminisce their first time riding a bike, and its process. Melissa retells the story, but instead of biking, she likens the experience to parenting – the joy of seeing others’ kids, the challenge once you’ve had your own child, the constant toil of new developments, the parental instinct imbibed in you once you’ve experienced it after a long time.

 

Nutrition plays a vital role in the development of a child. Without providing proper action, a child’s diet may greatly affect his or her overall growth. However, despite the potential health risks children may face due to the environment or because of genetics, there are ways parents can prevent these from happening and help ensure their children are not restricted to achieve their full potential for the future.

 

“Nestlé understands that children and their parents face a complex reality, which is why parents should have the tools that will help them pave the way toward their children’s optimal growth and development. Nestlé NANKID provides the optimal nutrition which is essential to growing children’s needs. Coupled with supportive care from parents who allow their children to learn from every opportunity, Nestlé aims to let parents reshape the future, today.” said Ms. Jean Espino, Vice President for Marketing, Nestlé Premium Milks.

 

Furthering the Optimal Growth Movement

 

With its aim to promote the Growth Mindset movement, and how this can be applied in school, Nestlé NANKID also worked with SMILE Group (Specializing in Modern Interactive Learning Experiences), an advocate of STEM and STEAM Methodology committed to help Filipino children develop a growth mindset and 21st century skills, to host a learning symposium entitled “Childproof Teaching: Applying the Growth Mindset in School” with Melissa Benaroya, LICSW, held in Miriam College on the 16th of January; where she imparted her knowledge of child development, empathy, and 21st century skills among students and children that can prepare them for life’s hardships. The event was attended by educators from the Philippines’ progressive schools.

 

Indeed, embracing challenges and opening up possibilities are a child’s greatest teacher, and with an optimal growth mindset, backed by optimal nutrition, parents can help reshape their children’s future so they can become the best version of themselves.

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.

NANKID Ambassadors (L-R) Cole Hernandez, Steph Kienle Gonzalez, Steph Zubiri Crespi, Mikaela Martinez and Joy Sotto graced the NANKID’s Parentology media event held in SM Aura last July 7.

IMG_5723Kids including Kulayot enjoyed solving puzzles and that contains the traits of a future ready child. His puzzle was Healthy Foodie, which he is as he cries for brocolli and always request watermelons, apples, oranges and nuts over chips and carbonated drinks.15626219_1503985906281431_3404314513249935418_o

Of course, my three-year old Dabibot is no exception. There was one time, I was craving for instant pancit canton; to justify this unhealthy food and add color, I plan to add some carrots. Dabibot ate it all up. I guess I need to chop the carrots faster next time!

Eating leafy greens is no problem, either! Introduction to different kinds of vegetables in an early stage is a good start to help them love the real food over process food.

The Nankid Play area consists of three stations. The Puzzle Station as seen above, The Nutrition+ station reminded moms the right portioning of food intake that kids should get everyday and the Active Station where Dabibot had most of the fun.

Simple Tips to help your children reshape their future today!

  • Help them socialize! – Set the stage by creating playdates with their friends, cousins, classmates, even those who are older than them. Try out new social skills, board games and warm up and be present while still letting kids explore on their own.

 

  • Give them the Best Nutrition! – The keys to complete nutrition – moderation, balance and variety. Facilitate easier decision-making in the kitchen or when buying grocery by remembering these keys. Make mealtime a bonding experience by putting down gadgets and by letting them help in cooking. This will turn cooking a fun time while helping them appreciate the home cooked meals and at the same time learning the ingredients of what they are eating.

 

  • Keep them Active! – Set the rules on using gadgets, watching Television and playing online games. It will help instill good discipline at the young age. Give them a taste of success by allowing them to be with the nature. Go out, and play out, together! Lead the way to an active lifestyle by

Family is the smallest group of the community that consists of members living together in one roof. The simplest form of family includes husband and wife, and children. There are different modern family structures nowadays, but the learnings of children is still the same. It starts at home.

Parents are one of the most who always look forward and wonder about the future. If we are determined on what we would like our children to be in the future, then it’ll be easier to shape them like soft clays to form a beautiful pottery. We shouldn’t be fearful of what the future will bring, we have the power to reshape it and with the right tools and attitude, the future is bright and very promising!
