Mommies spent an afternoon of good, wholesome fun with Friso at the Wholesome Table in BGC on Thursday, February 15.
Hosted by Joy Mendoza, creator of TeachWithJoy.com and a believer of Friso Four, the “Friso Four LockNutri Workshop” served as a delightful post-valentine treat which included herb gardening activity and bento-making.
Tanya Pico, Marketing Services Manager for Friso together with Leigh Formoso, Friso Four Brand Manager, kicked off the event by introducing the brand, “Friso is a brand from FrieslandCampina, a company that provides millions of consumers, in over 100 countries, with nutrient-rich food products. 100% packed and produced in the Netherlands, Friso is present in over 25 countries.”
Additionally, Leigh puts emphasis on LockNutri Technology, “Since our child’s digestive system is delicate and still developing, nutrients in their natural state are much easier for delicate tummies to digest. LockNutri is our advanced production technology that protects the milk protein’s natural nutrient against overheating to retain closer to its natural state. This means, with LockNutri System, Friso Four nutrient is easy to digest – making it helpful in providing the nutrition that your child needs today.”
Friso Four designed the workshop especially for moms of kids 3 years old and up, in such a way that each activity would help them discover the importance of providing natural nutrition as well as building a stronger digestive system for their little ones.
Giorgio Milano and Mackie Bretaña of Qubo Ph helped moms discover the wonders of herb gardening while highlighting the benefits of having easy access to natural food enhancers that are easy on digestion. Giorgio is a licensed agricultural engineer and Officer-In-Charge for Research & Development for Urban Harvestry Inc. While Mackie, a landscape architect, is a Co-Founder and Managing Director of Urban Harvestry Inc., a startup social enterprise dedicated to pushing for urban greenery and agriculture in Metro Manila through the Qubo Garden Kits brand.
Des Labii of Bento Mommas, on the other hand, showed mommies how to level-up their baon-making skills. She implies that not only does bento-making encourages picky eaters to finish their food, but it allows mommies and kids to bond as they prepare the meals together – and at the same time, make sure that they use only natural ingredients. A mother of two boys, her experience as a dialysis nurse in NKTI prompted her to be a vigilant mother when it comes to food preparation, health and nutrition.
After a sumptuous buffet of healthy eats prepared by The Wholesome Table, mommies received their LockNutri Starter Kits as they are welcomed to the Friso Four Community with a pledge. “We aim to empower moms to ‘say no’ to less natural, processed food; and ‘say yes’ to natural ingredients. Because we believe that with your child strong on the inside, they become more resilient and can go on and experience more with you. And that’s what really matters most,” ends Leigh Formoso, Brand Manager of Friso Four Philippines.
Finally, the successful event was sealed with a toast led by Friso Philippines Medical and Consumer Marketing Manager, Mr. Roehl Solis.
