Our family has moved to a bigger place recently. The only reason for our move is for the children to have a better and bigger place to move and enjoy themselves. Our old place has been very small and the kids cannot do anything else other than watch tv and be bored.

I am a strong believer of play outdoors and less time in digital pacifiers. So I am not worried whether or not they will get booboo and play dirt outside our house because it is part of growing up. The only worry for me is how they will smell after their play.

Johnson’s places a focus on active play to ignite their imagination, develop their social skills and process emotions, and become more resilient and confident because of the strong bond they develop with their parents during playtime.

As an avenue for more imaginative play, Johnson’s has built an Active Playcation playground equipped with further imaginative and active play among kids. The Jonshon’s Active Kids Playcation consists of different play pods such as:

Imagine and Seek: where children use their imagination and thinking skills to replicate an image using just rubber mats.

Fireball Away: challenges a child’s balance, agility, and cognitive skills by dodging “fireballs” to get to the other end of the platform without falling.



Dragon Maze: fuels a child’s sense of motivation to win by collecting all hidden items within a specific amount of time.



Little Builder’s City: encourages the use of imagination and creativity by allowing children to design and build their own fortresses.


“It is important that we create safe spaces that will encourage children to play and use their imagination. By ensuring that they have this opportunity, experiencing the optimum benefits of play is just at their arm’s reach.” Shared Michael Santiago of Philippine Toy Library, a non-profit organization that transforms idle spaces in communities into fun and educational play areas for the benefit of children who they consider as the reason why they exist.

Let our children be kids and explore the world around them. We can make enjoyable playtime and be worry-free with their Baby Active Fresh and Shiny Drops Products. Let us keep our kids smelling fresh despite the summer sweat with Johnson’s Active Fresh Shampoo and Johnson’s Baby Active Fresh Bath. While my little girl can keep her crown shiny with Johnson’s Baby Shiny Drops Shampoo and Conditioner.

My relationship with breakfast is not good since I had children. I must admit, I can only survive my morning with a cup of coffee and a slice of bread. After that, I am ready to start my day. I know for a fact that it is not recommended since it lacks some of the food groups that will help me jumpstart my day. 

Now, I want to change that especially now that my kids will be starting school in few months time. I must admit, I had a hard time with my eldest last year when he went to school because I have seen the effects of it from his daily activities because I could hardly make him eat breakfast in the morning.

But what is good with my kids is that they never omit cereals from their everyday meal. They make sure that they could eat at least a bowl or more (LOL) everyday. Although, I have to make their eating habits right and at least incorporate in their meals all the food groups as much as possible. 


Why is breakfast the most important meal of the day? 

“We believe breakfast is more than a good start to your dayit’s the foundation for a better future. We want moms to feel empowered to make informed and healthy choices, so they can provide the best nutrition for their children. We have made this easier by making whole grain the number one ingredient in all Nestlé Breakfast Cereals that are popular with school children and teens,” said Ece Durukan, Nestlé Regional Nutrition and External Affairs Manager for Asia, Middle East, and Africa.

Why whole grains?

Whole grains are made up of three parts, together they deliver package of important nutrients. When grains are refined to make 'white' products, like white bread, white rice and pasta, the outer parts of the grain are thrown away and only the middle section is used. 

A GRAIN is composed of three parts: BRAN, ENDOSPERM, and GERM. Each has its own important content. BRAN contains fiber, Anti-oxidants, B Vitamins and Minerals. ENDOSPERM has Carbohydrates, Proteins and B Vitamins. GERM has Proteins, Vitamins B & E, Magnesium and Essential Fats. 


“The 8th National Nutrition Survey clearly demonstrates the need to increase awareness amongst Filipinos on the importance of eating whole grains. It is alarming that consumption levels in the Philippines are far below recommended levels and that the vast majority of Filipinos are missing out on the benefits associated with whole grains, which include lower body weight and cholesterol levels, as well as reduced risk of diabetes and other chronic diseases,” commented Ma. Adrienne Constantino, Former Supervising Science Research Specialist of Nutritional Assessment and Monitoring Division, FNRI.

Nestle Philippines hosted a 'master class' event wherein they discussed the importance of eating healthy breakfast and encourage families to add more whole grain to their daily nutrition for healthier future. Daughter and I had so much fun kneading the dough and creating our own Koko Krunch cereals. 



It is much better if we start from ourselves so we could be good role models of our children who eats healthy. Let us not miss out eating whole grains and make breakfast better with Nestle.
