Christmas season is fast approaching. For kids, this Yuletide season means parties, fun games, visiting relatives and of course, gifts! This is the time of the year that kids, and even the kids at heart, enjoy so much because parties are everywhere – in school, office, get-together with friends and the likes.

One of the best vacations we had that I treasure on my memory bank was the moment we visited Hongkong Disneyland two weeks before Christmas. Although, this was our third time to be in Hongkong what made this trip extra special was the fact that we get to explore the city on our own. In our previous trips, we were accompanied by my husband’s relatives.

Aside from the happiness and excitement the Christmas season brings, this is also the time when people, specially the kids, easily catch colds and flu due to cold weather, attending parties and eating unhealthy foods. Well, as a mother, I am aware that eating too much of unhealthy food may pose harm to Keisha’s over all health, but I also know that as a kid, she wants to enjoy the season by munching on chips and chocolates, among others, as well as, skipping meals at times because she was too busy playing with other kids. Even so, I don’t want to spoil the fun for her, so instead, I do the following:

  • make sure she gets enough sleep at night – I let her have fun the whole day provided that she sleeps on her scheduled bed time.
  • regularly wash hands before and after eating – since she gets to get a hand on almost everything during her playtime, her hands are sure to to harbor differents kinds of germs
  • let her take her multivitamins regularly – to boost her immune system
  • eat fruits – to balance her food intakefruits
  • drink milk – to make sure that she still gets the proper nutrition that her body needsnido-mommy-carnival-10

For her milk, I only trust Nido 5+ because I know that it contains all the ingredients that my Keisha needs for better development and to keep her away from diseases by  containing Lactobacillus PROTECTUS®. These are millions of live good bacteria that helps build her bodily defenses, therefore effectively protecting her from diseases. This good bacteria can only be found in Nido Protectus 3+ and Nido 5+ together with other essential nutrients that promotes healthy development of every child.

In addition, NIDO 5+ also has CALCI-N® to help build healthy bones by providing better calcium absorption and DHA plus ALA, LA, Folic Acid and Taurine to properly developed a childs’s brain structure. For more information, visit

With this, I have been trusting Nido eversince to help me provide the best nutrition for Keisha and keep her away from diseases. Nido gave me peace of mind knowing that despite of the “unmonitored” unhealthy-food eating during Christmas season, my daughter still gets the proper nutrition for every glass of her milk.
