I may not be the world’s best mom cook but I certainly value serving home-cooked meals for my family. This is the only way I can ensure that I only give safe, healthy and delicious food to my husband and daughter.
Sadly, because of poverty and busy schedule, not all families in our country get to enjoy the benefits of eating home-cooked meals everyday. For this reason, Knorr Philippines has thought of a way to help moms like us to solve this kitchen dilemma and make a sustainable family meal-planning possible for all.
Knorr Whips “Lutong Nanay” Nutrition Program
Knorr recently visited two barangays in Smokey Mountain, Barangay 101 and Barangay 128, with its ambassadors. Dimples Romana, Danica Sotto-Pingris and Sari Jorge joined forces to help educate moms and children the importance of a healthy diet for the family. Over a meal of afritada, they also shared their personal experiences, cooking secrets and how they entice their kids to eat a healthy, balanced meal with the help of Knorr.
Meanwhile, ambassadors Carmina Villaroel and Chesca Kramer joined Knorr at the Cardinal Sin Village. Mothers and children collectively learned the importance of a vigorous diet for the family. The program was a good exchange of insights, experience and learnings not only from the ambassador, but from resident mothers as well.
As the theme of sharing experiences and learnings continued, one mother shared, “Ngayon, kaya ko nang magluto ng pagkain na hindi lang masarap, masustansya pa.” Another participant shared how she realized the importance of preparing healthier meals for her family by incorporating vegetables in their meal plan unlike before, where they usually prepare meals with minimal consideration to nutritional value.
With the help of Knorr’s Lutong Nanay nutrition program, more and more moms are inspired, motivated and informed about how important it is to serve healthy meals for their family. It’s a long way to go but Knorr’s ongoing program is a big step towards fighting malnutrition in Filipino children.
Knorr continues to empower Filipinos to cook flavorful, nutritious and affordable meals everyday. It emphasizes that moms are the pillars to help alleviate malnutrition. Together, Knorr’s Lutong Nanay dishes and moms can diminish this issue that affects so many Filipinos, one mom-cooked meal at a time.
Please don’t forget to take part and visit Knorr’s Lutong Nanay Nutrition Program Food Fair this Friday at Meracto Centrale, BGC, Taguig! Lots of yummy and nutritious recipes will be featured including the recipes of Knorr ambassadors – Carmina Villaroel, Chesca Kramer, Dimples Romana, Danica Sotto-Pingris, and more.
