Kids are naturally playful and curious about a lot of things that surrounds them. Oftentimes as parents, our kids bombard us with tons of questions because they've become inquisitive like little scientists with their very own made up hypothesis. They prefer to explore outdoors and interact more with people, animals, the nature and other stuff. But by doing so, they are more exposed to possible sickness and accidents. We are very much concerned when it comes to our kids' health--from vaccinations to vitamins, we make sure to protect our kids in the best way we can. However, in as much as we'd like to be with our kids to prevent them from illness we know we cannot always be there for them. And this is where we can rely on NIDO 3+, made specifically for kids 3 and up by Nestle Research.
We went recently to an exclusive event attended by media and bloggers for the 2014 NIDO 3+ campaign together with Nestle executives which was held at the private function room of Chef Jessie Restaurant in Amorsolo Square, Rockwell, Makati. NIDO 3+ brand ambassador singer/songwriter/artist and celebrity mom Barbie Almalbis-Honasan graced the said event alongside child expert and Associate Professor at the FamilyLife and Child Development Department of the Home Economics of UP Diliman, Dr. Lilian Leynes-Juadiong where parenting experiences and expert insights that most moms worry about were discussed, including how moms can boost their child's body defenses against sickness while the kids can simply be precocious kids.
I used to be very anxious when it comes to my kids (she has two kids-Stina, 6 and Liam,3), I used to panic whenever my kids hurt themselves and they would cry. They say that having a child is like having your heart walk around outside your body, that's exactly how I feel about my kids. It was my husband who told me to have a keep calm attitude," Barbie shared. "I later realized that it was my reaction that caused my kids to fear and cry. My son tests his limits, he likes to fly while my daughter loves role playing. I now allow them to play and pick themselves up each time they fall. I'm thankful for the products like NIDO 3+ that help me equip and protect my kids everyday," Barbie added.
"Mothers are very perceptive on what they give their kids and they mainly worry about three things during growing up years. First is if they are getting real value for their money. Second is the acceptability of these purchases, which may be food or drinks, to their kids. Is it appealing to their kid's palate? Is this something that their kids can appreciate daily? Does it does it protect them as they explore new things? And lastly, is it easy to prepare as there are first-time moms and working moms to consider?" Shared Dr. Juadiong during the said media event. "Given these factors, good and high-quality sourced of nourishment and nutrients become mommy's little helpers to lessen the things they worry about. Special ingredients such as Lactobacillus PROTECTUS, a unique combination of live active good microorganisms can be found in NIDO 3+, as it plays an important role in strengthening your child's body defenses. With this, first-time mom will surely have peace of mind while giving their kids the chance to be kids--play and be healthy without adverse effects."
It was also during the said NIDO 3+ event where the refreshed version of the popular NIDO jingle "You're My Number One" video was launched. Attendees of the event had an exclusive screening of the impressive collaborative video of NIDO 3+ brand ambassadors Ms. Sharon Cuneta and Barbie Almalbis-Honasan. "I'm so excited to work with Ms. Sharon. I'm honored and privileged to do so," enthuses Barbie. "Ms. Sharon last revived the song in 2009, and for this project I got to work with her and her son, Miguel. I am equally thrilled that I got to do this with my kids Stina and Liam who enjoy NIDO 3+ as well,"said Barbie.
