Nestlé Philippines hosted a ‘master class’ event to discuss the importance of eating a healthy breakfast and encourage families to add more whole grain to their daily nutrition for a healthier future. Nestlé staff, nutrition experts, and media explored the nutritious ingredients in KOKO KRUNCH and prepared their own breakfast cereals.
One study, conducted by the Food and Nutrition Research Institute, and the Department of Science and Technology (FNRI-DOST), which looked at the whole grain consumption of different Filipino population groups, revealed that only 1 in 20 children consume whole grain. It also showed that, overall, 99% of Filipinos do not consume ?48g of whole grain per day which is the US whole grain intake recommendation.
“We believe breakfast is more than a good start to your day—it’s the foundation for a better future. We want moms to feel empowered to make informed and healthy choices, so they can provide the best nutrition for their children. We have made this easier by making whole grain the number one ingredient in all Nestlé Breakfast Cereals that are popular with school children and teens,” said Ece Durukan, Nestlé Regional Nutrition and External Affairs Manager for Asia, Middle East, and Africa.
