Press Release: ALASKA KICKS-OFF BATANG ALASKA SCHOOL MILK PROGRAM

According to the 2015 Updating of the Nutritional Status of Filipinos developed by the Food and Nutrition Research Institute of the Philippines (FNRI), 1 out of every 3 children in the Philippines aged 5 to 10 is suffering from stunted growth. Similarly, 1 out of every 3 children aged 5 to 10 years old is underweight.

The World Health Organization (WHO) defines stunted growth as the “failure to reach one’s full potential for growth.” Poor nutrition is one of the many causes of this. This can also result to being underweight or when a child weighs less than the average for their age and height.

Stunted growth as well as being underweight are problems that should not be ignored. If not addressed early, stunted growth may lead to lost productivity and opportunities, and to nutrition-related diseases later in life.

Fully aware of these facts, Alaska Milk Corporation, who is dedicated to providing proper and affordable nutrition to Filipinos for over four decades, will hold a series of events with activities to promote the importance of proper nutrition all throughout a child’s development years in order to reach the right height and weight for their age.

Taking the lead in this campaign is Alaska’s new Alaska Fortified Powdered Milk Drink which is loaded with Vitamin D, it’s also high in calcium and iron and a good source of protein. Milk has always been essential for growing children to have enough and consistent nutrient intake to ensure maximum growth potential. That is why Alaska Fortified Powdered Milk Drink, combined with proper nutrition and an active lifestyle, will help children reach the “tamang tangkad at bigat” (right height and weight) for their age.

Event: Progress Pre-School GOLD Multiple Intelligence the Real Measure of Success

blog1Hello Sweeties!

The time has come to explore and recognize the different forms of intelligences to help children achieve the most success.

Understanding that success isn’t solely based on how good a child is in math or science means giving the chance to recognize their ability to be good at other things as well, eventually creating a generation that possess multiple intelligences.

That is why when I got the invitation to attend Progress Pre-School GOLD`s Multiple Intelligence Recognition Day I did not hesitate. As a Mom I wanted to support this endeavor.
