Although she considers herself a smart homemaker, mother of two Andi Manzano-Reyes admitted to still struggling when it comes to making choices for her family’s health.
Having their first daughter, Olivia, motivated Andi and husband GP to make a lifestyle check.
“For me, being a mom has changed the way I make decisions,” she shared. Health and nutrition became a priority for her, and it became increasingly important that she become more meticulous especially with the food that she prepares for her daughter.
Andi was inspired by her fellow moms who lead a healthier and more natural lifestyle; this is where she was introduced to organically sourced food.
Organic products follow a strict standard that ensures there are no artificial pesticides, growth hormones, and synthetic antibiotics used during its production process.
In a previous interview with Manila Standard, Pam So-Surez of all-natural and organic retailer Healthy Options said more young moms are opting for organic food products for their babies. “They want organic from birth onwards,” revealed So-Suarez.
Olivia, now 4 years old, loves fruits and vegetables—food that Andi regularly includes in her diet. Since her firstborn is very adventurous when it comes to food (especially spicy ones), she and mom Andi make food preparing a fun time for them. They usually cook Filipino dishes, and make homemade fruit ice popsicles or salads together.
“We don’t always go organic but when we have the chance to do so and it’s available, we do it. Choosing organic food gives me peace of mind knowing that whatever we ate, drank, or put in our body was straight from the ground and has no chemicals,” said Andi.
Although the 32-year-old mom doesn’t exclusively serve organic food to her family, she chooses smart when it comes to Olivia’s milk. She said she wanted to make sure that Olivia got the best available milk.
After doing thorough research and consulting fellow moms, Andi discovered Promil Organic. Promil Organic, made by Wyeth Nutrition, is made with 100 percent organic milk sourced from certified organic dairy farms. It is certified organic by the Organic Certification Center of the Philippines Inspection and Services Inc.
It is the only organic formula milk in the Philippines intended for preschoolers aged 3 and above that contains DHA and AA—important nutrients that help support children’s brain development.
