I haven't come across any TV ad that has "Bibibons" on it. But I had seen them in supermarket shelves on the baby section and I've always wanted to give it a try for our eight-month-old baby, Cerise Millicent or Miles for short. What has made me interested in Bibibons is the fact that it actually comes as a 2-in1 biscuit--it could be a nibbler and a cereal at the same time for babies 6 to 24 month old. Miles hardly enjoy eating cereals or maybe she was sick and tired of it, so I figured she might like Bibibons.
Interestingly, Bibibons can be a "finger food" for teething babies like Miles. Of course, Mommies would be curious what nutritional benefits does eating Bibibons give, right? The biscuit's box says, it has "DHA and Taurine." Being a meticulous parent, I've researched on what these two nutritional values meant: DHA is an abbreviation of docosahexaenoic acid, which is an omega-3 fatty acid C22H32O2 found especially in fish of cold waters. Taurine, on the other hand is a crystalline acid C2H7NO3S that is synthesized in the body from cysteine and methionine, and is similar to amino acids but is not a component of proteins, and is involved in various physiological functions (as bile acid conjugation and cell membrane stabilization). Now in a simple layman's term, Bibibons contains essential nutritional supplements that play a very significant role in a child's development!
Here's our Baby Miles, 8 months trying to gauge the biscuit on her tiny hands.
Aside from DHA and Taurine, Bibibons supports body development (with Vitamin A, Iron and Calcium), supports a healthy immune system (Pantothenic Acid and Vitamin C), Vitamin A, C, D and E, Folic Acid, Iron and other essential nutrients all for baby's proper health development.
And for wise mommies, Bibibons is really a good buy. For one, it costs only Php36.00, much cheaper when compared to other cereals. It's produced by Rebisco Philippines--one of the country's most trusted brands that I personally grew up with. So you can be assured that Bibibons are made from the stringent high standards of the Rebisco company.
Inside a box of Bibibons had six individually wrapped packs. Each pack contains four nibblers, and oh, Bibibons also comes with a FREE small red bowl too! I've tried to taste them myself and that's how I learned that Bibibons indeed tastes good. It wasn't sweet although it smells like milk. Each nibbler is tough enough so that babies can hold it without crumbling fast yet when eaten, it easily melts on babies' mouth.
I'm glad baby Miles liked it. She would put Bibibons on her mouth using her chubby tiny fingers and I'd be entertained simply by watching her eat. Baby Miles would eat Bibibons nibblers biscuit with much gusto. She's such a joy to look at. We were even surprised how she loved Bibibons even when its on its cereal form--to think she didn't liked eating cereals before. Preparing Bibibons as cereal is as easy as 1,2, 3--just add 450ml of water, let is sit for a few minutes and voila! Your baby can enjoy a lovely cereal meal in no time!
So the next time I go to the grocery, I'd definitely be including Bibibons Nibbler and Cereal on my list. Moms love its nutritional benefits while babies love its taste. I'd personally recommend friends who has babies 6-24 months to try it as well. After all, seldom will you find high quality products at an affordable price.
Bibibons Nibbler Biscuit and Cereal are available in the baby section of leading groceries, supermarkets and department stores.
