Nestle Philippines TV Commercial: MILO "The Gift"

Acclaimed director Stephen Ngo brings to life the new MILO® Marathon TV commercial.

It tells the story of Aris, a young boy from the province who dreams of having his own pair of running shoes. He makes a paper cutout of his own foot, hoping to give it to a kind-hearted soul in exchange for a pair of shoes.

But as he writes his name on the cutout, a strong wind blows it away and he chases after it. He reaches the town plaza where the National MILO® Marathon is about to start. As he weaves through the crowd a runner grabs his cutout. To his surprise, the runner gives Aris a new pair of running shoes.

His dream is finally realized.

We end with Aris happily running in the MILO® Marathon.

Healthy Snacks For Kids

Did you know that snacks are a good way to provide children with adequate nutrition?

• Children have smaller stomachs than adults and therefore should have smaller frequent meals.

• Make sure you give them healthy snacks such as fruits or fruit juice, milk and cereal, or milk and peanut butter sandwich.

Nutrition and Wellness for Kids

The best way to teach your kids about nutrition and wellness is to be a model for wellness yourself.

• Show the importance of exercise by taking time to do a physical activity with your child at least three times a week for at least 30 minutes a day. For example, you can play a sport like badminton together or just simply walk around the neighborhood. This is a good bonding opportunity too!
• Always have fruits and vegetables in your kitchen instead of nutrient-low and calorie-rich snacks.

Osteoporosis A.K.A Brittle Bones Disease

Osteoporosis is a disease characterized by low bone mass or what is called brittle bones.

• Osteoporosis leads to an increased risk of bone fractures typically in the wrist, hip, and spine.

• Our body needs calcium for healthy bones, teeth, and the proper function of the heart, muscles, and nerves.

• But the body cannot produce calcium, so we have to get it from the food we eat. Milk and dairy products (whole milk, low fat or nonfat milk, cheese, yogurt) are the best sources of calcium.
