Nutritional Energy Drink For Kids ( Momimhar posted on August 31st, 2015 )

Milo energy drink.

Milo chocolate nutritional energy drink.

When it comes to healthy drinks, we want only the best for our children.  Of course, every one of us have our own preferences.  Sometimes we just don’t stick to one healthy drink only because our kids’ taste buds change, too.  But the most important thing is we want them to stay healthy and strong.

Who remembers Milo chocolate drink?  When siblings and I were growing up, Milo has been a part of our daily meal.  It was our breakfast or mid-afternoon drink back then.  A product from #Nestle with vitamins and minerals that every child need.  We never liked drinking milk so Milo chocolate nutritional energy drink was great for us.  Sometimes we’re mixing the drink with rice to make it look like we’re making a porridge.

I bought a few of this drink and let my darling daughter try some to see if she’ll like Milo.  Well, she loved it! I would like for you to try Milo chocolate nutritional energy drink.  One can cost $1.88 in most grocery stores.

Another favorite is the Goodness To-Go Breakfast/Anytime Shake from Post.  I learned about this when I was grocery shopping at Walmart one weekend few months ago.  There was a free sample kiosk for this breakfast drink and there were coupons, too.  It tasted good and hence it’s Vanilla flavor, which my daughter also likes, I took two coupons and grabbed two packs.  Each pack has four and costs about $4.98.  The coupon was $1.50.  I think the price is just right for this one.  Sometimes you’ll find coupons for this at Coupons.com.

One Goodness To-Go breakfast drink a day is good.  Try it.  Your child might like it.

Daily Sweetener That’s Healthy For You ( Momimhar posted on March 18th, 2015 )

As a full-time mom and housewife, life is sometimes difficult for me especially when I don’t get all my house chores done.  There are times when  I get to do something today but will get left behind because something very important comes up.  And so, I end up in a back log at times.

But there are moments when I feel very at ease.  Thanks to my loving husband for always being there to help me especially in the kitchen.  I don’t cook that much at all.  My husband does most of the cooking for us.  He doesn’t care for Filipino foods that much.  Here is more into Tex-Mex foods.

Anyway, whenever I am feeling overwhelmed I just get me a cup of coffee and tsweetleafake a few minutes of relaxation in the living room while watching my favorite cooking show.  I don’t need to put a lot of sugar in my coffee because we have SweetLeaf Organic Stevia Sweetener.

We Can Fight Malnutrition ( Momimhar posted on March 19th, 2014 )

Proper nutrition is very important especially to children.  This is to help them grow healthy and strong.  Without proper nutrition, kids will get weak immune system and resistance that lead to sickness.  There are millions of children around the world who suffer from malnutrition.  A few reasons are poverty, less resources of food, and lack of awareness on health.  Non-profit organizations are reaching out to countries to help fight malnutrition.  Programs that include healthy food awareness are implemented accordingly to encourage households to take part.

There are also non-profit organizations that engage in child sponsorship programs.  They help kids from the low income households to get sponsors to be able to assist them with school needs, nutrition, and wellness.  This is such a noble thing to do.  Helping the unfortunate children go to school and maintain healthy living is a great pledge.

On the other hand, the community should also engage in helping these kind of programs to succeed.  Cooperation between the lower government officials and the people in the communities can make these happen.  Livelihood projects for earning, good healthcare assistance, and nutrition awareness programs should be implemented with compassion so the children will benefit in many ways.  In this way, we will overcome hunger and malnutrition.

In our own household, we can help fight malnutrition by eating the right diet and getting rid of bad eating habits.  Foods from the food groups Go, Grow, and Glow foods should be present in each meal daily.  Like I said, this is very important to keep our kids and family healthy and strong.

Organizations Reaching Out To Needy Communities ( Momimhar posted on March 15th, 2014 )

I remember when I was a young girl, children in our neighborhood including me and my siblings gather in a small chapel every Saturday morning.  A group of grown ups come to see us and give us some food-yummy oatmeal, mixed vegetables, powdered milk, juice, bread, and the like.  They also meet with our parents and hold seminars about health, food sources, sanitation, and fitness.

My siblings and I loved all the food that was given to us.  We didn’t pay attention to what the grown ups were talking about because we were fully occupied by the thought of those delicious foods.  That was a very nice event held in our neighborhood that time.  We were looking forward to Saturday mornings.  But it didn’t last long though.  Whoever those people were, we were very thankful that they came.  Because they brought happiness to us kids and imparted awareness about proper nutrition to everybody in our neighborhood.  It was memorable for us.  It seemed to me that those people came to help and care for us.

It is great to know that there are groups or organizations who are helping needy communities especially the children.  I just hope that they continue doing the noble jobs in order to bring hope and inspiration to young children.

Spring Hasn’t Been Friendly Lately ( Momimhar posted on April 26th, 2013 )

I am very glad that my darling daughter is feeling well now.  As you may know, she had cough and colds just a few days ago.  And she had been having a difficulty going to the bathroom.  Her bowel movement is irregular and she was having constipation.  Spring hasn’t been friendly to my little princess lately.

We went to see her pediatrician two weeks ago to talk to her regarding my daughter’s pain whenever she feels like going.  She crosses her legs and cries in pain.  I was very helpless to see my child miserable.  In a middle of play, all of a sudden she just scream and cry.  My husband, me, and the folks were very worried about our little girl.

First thing the doctor asked me was if I already potty training my daughter Kaye.  I told her that I tried training Kaye to use the potty but it was only a day or two before this happened.  The doctor said that one reason for constipation might be potty training since toddlers are getting aware of the urge to go to the bathroom and they try to hold it.  Then she checked Kaye’s tummy.  And I thought the pain is because of the irritated skin in the private area, I asked the doctor to check that too.  But she didn’t see any irritation or rash.  The doctor recommended to give Kaye lots of water, foods rich in fiber, and a dose of Miralax to soften bowel.  The goal is to get Kaye go everyday.

Thank God everything is well.  Kaye’s cough and colds are gone.  She’s going everyday now.
