Rebisco Cracker’s Pasobra Pack makes snack time more meaningful

Enjoying a snack or sharing your food to your friend or love ones is very common to Filipinos. But sometimes eating what our body needs like healthy food is one of the things we often take for granted because of the lifestyle that we have.

But for many Filipino children and their families, access to nutritious meals is a constant struggle. Satisfying hunger is one thing; ensuring that the food is nourishing is another challenge altogether. This nutrition gap can lead to deficiencies that deprive a growing child’s body of proper nutrients needed for growth and brain development.



According to data from UNICEF, two of the main micronutrient deficiencies are iron and iodine. Iodine is vital for normal growth and tissue development. Lack of iodine can contribute to brain damage that is otherwise preventable. It is most devastating during fetal development and the first few years of a child’s life.

Iron helps carry oxygen around the body, and is especially vital for the brain and blood. Ir…

Goya Double Hazelnut Snack and Dessert Ideas

As a mom, one of the things that I have encountered with my daughter as she grows is being picky with what she ate. It was not easy and since I need to consider her health and nutrition I can not just give in to giving her what my daughter only wanted.I knew then that I needed to make a smart choice of giving her something that she will like and enjoy.


Recently I was invited to an intimate event by Goya with my co-mommies and together with celebrity moms Camille Pratts and Kelly Misa and well-known hairstylist and makeup guru, Lourd Ramos.



 I knew that this is the end for my quest in looking for smart choices in life, in the event they all shared their experiences in life and the smart choices that they have made to excel as a person, mom and a business owner.



Chef AJ of Privatus prepared some gourmet dishes and used Goya Double Hazelnut as one of the key ingredients.



When I saw Goya Double Hazelnut Spread in the Supermarket it was way much cheaper than the brand that I usually buy a…
