Prepare healthy baon for kids with Philips

Press Release

Another school year is just around the corner and soon the students will be back to their daily grind. It’s a new start for everyone and there’s a lot to look forward to this school year: new classmates, new teachers, new faces, new books, new subjects and many more.

Mothers, for their part, must make sure that everything is in order.

Aside from ticking off the usual checklist of school supplies and uniform, mothers should also prepare for the back to school baon, ensuring that their kids eat the right meals to keep them healthy in school as they brave another year of education.

“Mothers must make sure their children get the perfect start. Such preparations include planning in advance for their healthy baon,” says RJ Buenaventura, Philips General Manager for Personal Health.

He says that the task can be daunting for mommies if they don’t have the right partners. Buenaventura explains, “Indeed, having the right kitchen tools for one’s back-to-school preparations can make a huge difference.”

And because school cafeteria food may not always be healthy, most moms prefer to prepare home cooked baon for their kids. Towards this end, Philips, the world’s no. 1 home cooking and food preparation appliance brand according to Euromonitor International, offers a line of helpful kitchen appliances.

“With these tools, both mother and child can definitely breeze through the back-to-school jitters with flying colors,” promises RJ.

Delicious with less fat

Nowadays, mothers have to consider the taste of the food as much as its nutritional value.

Philips Airfryer for instance, can cook delicious fried food with 80% less fat. It has a unique Rapid Air Technology that enables home chefs to fry with air to make food, which is crunchy on the outside and tender on the inside.

Healthy blends

For healthy fruit drinks, salads, dressing or vegetable dishes, mothers can use the Philips Avance Collection Blender. This kitchen tool can handle just about anything from fruits and vegetables to ice.

Its multi-speed function will help moms blend, crush and cut for perfectly smooth blending and any consistency they want, says Reah Ronsayro, Business Development Manager for Kitchen and Domestic Appliances.

The Philips Avance Collection Juicer can help mommies make healthy drinks for the little ones, as well. This product, Ronsayro explains, extracts more juice from fruit and vegetables with an innovative quick clean sieve and has an integrated pulp container that allows the consumer to clean the products easier.

Bread and breakfast

Preparing for back-to-school meals begins at home, with breakfast. As the old adage goes, it is the most important meal of the day. For children, fiber is quite important in the morning as it aids digestions and helps relieve and prevent constipation.

In line with this, the Viva Collection Toaster is yet another kitchen partner that can help mothers prepare bread for the morning meals of their kids.

With its wide deep slots and self-centering feature, this toaster ensures evenly golden brown toast on thick or thin slices. It also features an integrated bun warming rack, slide out crumb tray and one-touch reheat and defrost buttons, describes Reah.

Don’t forget rice

For older children whose classes are longer and extend through lunch hours, there’s the Philips Rice Cooker, which comes with automatic cooking functions that better preserve the freshness and nutrients in rice. It can serve up to 10 cups.

Faster, mom

Finally, there’s the Philips Induction Cooker, which shortens cooking time and makes preparing baon more convenient for moms who don’t have a lot of time. The kitchen tool comes with a variety of cooking functionalities such as an automatic temperature control, timer, sensor touch surface, and several cooking presets that make cooking a breeze.

Indeed, mommies need not go crazy over the back-to-school preparations for their little ones. They just need to find the right partners that would enable them to do their preparations in a smarter way.

Join in the 3rd Singapore Math Learning Festival

When I was still in school, I have often claimed that I do excel on all assigned tasks except Math. I find mathematics difficult because it is abstract and I find abstract problems quite difficult to comprehend. I cringed at the thought of solving actual problems or proving theorems because these yield definite results.

And the reality often sets in--Mathematics is not an option. Students are taught mathematics regardless of interest and each one must learn it to some degree. Since Math is a cumulative discipline, I then had to focus more on mathematical building blocks to understand every single concept.

Last June 20, Galileo Enrichment Learning Program CEO Ma. Rowena J. Matti hosted a Singapore Math orientation for parent bloggers and kids. Singapore Math is a teaching technique based on the Singapore's national mathematics curriculum used for kindergarten through sixth grade. In this aapproach, students learn and master mathematical concepts using a three-step learning process: concrete, pictorial, and abstract.

Bundling up meaning into abstract symbols can be easy if students were taught math properly during early childhood training. Moving on with a clear understanding of Math foundations will empower kids to enlarge their framework of knowledge.

Galileo discussed its key teaching methods, guiding principles and available programs on Math and English.
Miss Matti also talked about the 3rd Singapore Math Learning Festival, which is slated on July 4, 2015 (7:30AM - 5PM) at the AIM Conference Center.

The SMLF conference will be a venue to further educate parents, teachers, educators and school administrators with creative and innovative teaching strategies in using Singapore Math for creativity and innovation.

With the theme "Preparing for the Future: Creativity and Innovation Through Singapore Math", this year’s SMLF aims to provide learning enrichment through the following objectives:

● Discover the future of education and discover how schools and homes can be prepared for it
● Learn how Singapore Math fosters critical thinking, innovation, and creativity
● Innovate teaching and instruction for a more productive and interactive classroom and home
● Transform traditional methods of teaching and learning math in the classroom through Singapore Math
● Increase knowledge on the current trends in math education and how technology can be an aid to innovative math instruction
● Educate for the future generations of Filipino mathematicians and leaders

Plenary Speakers include Dr. Queena Lee-Chua (Ateneo professor and award-winning mathematecian), Gail Tan (Google Philippines Communications Manager) and Ann Marie Wongchuking-Pato, Education Curriculum and Design expert from the National Institute of Education (NIE) in Singapore.

Metro Manila residents can snag FREE tickets to the 3rd Singapore Math Learning Festival by following @galileoenrich on twitter and liking the Galileo Enrichment Learning Program Facebook page. One (1) SMLF ticket will be raffled off every week until July 3, 2015.
