Cream-O Flix Fest on a unique outdoor movie experience

Jack ‘n Jill Cream-O brought another memorable outdoor cinema experience in a colourful arcade-themed entertainment park with the second year of Cream-O Flix Fest: Unlock the Irresistible.

Creamoholics of all ages enjoyed the action-packed animation of Lego Batman Movie. They also watched futuristic quests in X-Men Days of Future Past, and reveled in the amazing adventure of young Peter Parker in Spider-Man Homecoming.

The day wasn’t just about movies as special activities were created for everyone to enjoy; Creamoholics had a blast showcasing their creativity at the Cream–Ofied Creations booth where they decorated their favorite Cream-O Vanilla, Choco Fudge, Deluxe, Crinkles, Chocolate Chip, Cookies ‘n Cream and Choco ‘n Berries cookies in four easy steps: choose, dip, sprinkle, and drizzle. This create-your-own-Cream-O activity was well received by guests. Consumers also took photos of their cookie creations and shared it online at the Cream-O Flatlay booth.

The crowd was also treated to engaging game booths where they brought out their playful sides and won prizes. Cream-O Warp Pipes and Claw the Cream-O challenged their competitive skills on getting treats using claw mechanism; while Cream-O Movie Combo Trivia Game tested their knowledge on popular movies.

Cream-O made the event more memorable as guests were serenaded with live music performances in between screenings. Lucky Creamoholics also took home Instax Mini Cameras and Kidzania Tickets from the raffle draws.

Wyeth Nutrition Promotes Healthier Living With Promil® Organic

It’s no surprise that going organic may have multiple benefits that help us lead more healthy lives. Taking the more natural approach or ‘going green’ has even been proven to help conserve the environment and improve the lives of farmers. Indeed, the organic lifestyle is steadily increasing in popularity among more and more Filipinos. With the recent launch of an organic milk brand in the market, Filipino moms now have the option to provide their children with better nutrition that will help develop their minds and bodies.

Wyeth Nutrition debuts the new Promil® Organic in a fun-filled and informative launch at Palazzo Verde in Las Pinas, gathering moms, trade partners and subject-matter experts. The latest innovation from the leading nutrition firm is made from the best of nature and expertly designed to nurture children’s gifts.

“Promil, moms’ trusted partner for the past 30 years, recognizes the growing needs of moms to provide a healthier foundation for their child through the organic lifestyle. We developed Promil® Organic to address the growing demand for organic products. It is made from 100% organic dairy milk from certified organic European farms,” says Theresa Chong, Marketing Director, Wyeth Philippines Inc.

Promil® Organic contains docosahexaeonic and arachidonic acid (DHA & AA) and is also a source of zinc and selenium to support brain and body development. It is the only organic formula milk expertly designed with these key nutrients.

According to surveys, the global organic food and beverage market is expected to reach USD 211.44 billion by 2020. More people are realizing the benefits of organic consumption and that they can still meet their daily dietary needs.

Proud moms Andi Manzano, Cat Ledesma, and Hindy Weber Tantoco hosted the event, sharing their own inspiring stories about motherhood to encourage parents to try an organic lifestyle. “We are proud to be joined by these women who pursue a healthy lifestyle,” says Patricia Cuna, Brand Manager for Promil® Organic. “They are dedicated mothers who only want the best for their children. We hope that their support could help us to inspire more parents to try a healthier lifestyle for their family, starting with Promil® Organic.”

Having a Healthy Lifestyle try Brown Rice

Apart from the morning pandesal, rice is the most common food staple in the Filipino dining table, be it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or even merienda. It’s simply something that Pinoys can’t eat without.

Eating white rice, especially with sumptuous dishes, can really be filling, but it could also significantly add to one’s weight.

Thankfully, Filipinos have an alternative to having steamed rice for their everyday meals—brown rice.

One of the healthiest types of rice, brown rice is a fiber-rich whole grain that has little calories and contains no trans-fat or cholesterol. It is a good source of magnesium, phosphorous, selenium, thiamine, niacin, manganese, and vitamin B6.

With its nutrient rich bran, brown rice is a better option to white rice as it is proven to prevent heart disease and lower bad cholesterol, protect children against asthma, help maintain a healthy bowel function, help control blood sugar levels, and reduce the risk of developing cancer, among other health benefits.

To help Filipinos eat healthy, Robinsons Supermarket was the first to partner with the Department of Agriculture and the Philippine Rice Research Institute to promote the use of brown rice in the country.

In December, it launched a promo that gave discounts for every kilo of participating brown rice products bought at selected Robinsons Supermarket and Robinsons Selections outlets.

This New Year, start the year right by adopting a healthy habit of eating brown rice. Go to any Robinsons Supermarket branch to choose from among the brown rice products available. Check out www.facebook.com/RobinsonsSupermarketOfficial or visit www.robinsons-supermarket.com.ph for more details.
