Start Strong in School with Mott’s

Mott’s Apple Juice is my favorite brand of apple juice. I have been buying it ever since Yuri was old enough to drink juice (I think around his 8th month mark?). I used to dilute it with water when he was a baby, and when he grew older, just the juice straight from the bottle. I never had any hesitations with Mott’s because it’s 100% apple juice — no sugar or any sweetener added — plus the fact that it’s chock-full of Vitamin C doesn’t hurt! Now that Yuri’s going to enter school, I’m planning to still give him Mott’s 100% Apple Juice for his breakfast and baon.

Which is why this package as a sweet surprised that arrived at the perfect timing.

We all want what is best for our kids, and Mott’s has a word for us this back-to-school season!

In a few weeks, the kids are going back to school. This is always a most exciting time for families. Waking up the kids on time, getting them to eat breakfast, and hurrying them along before the school bell rings — these morning routines are some of the most rousing that most families will ever encounter.

Parents naturally want their children to start strong in school, so they’d like to give them all they need to have the best preparation possible. Tomorrow starts with what you do today. For your kids to start strong, parents should help them develop the right habits today. They can start by establishing daily routines to get their kids into the swing of things like eating breakfast at eight, watering the garden at nine, and squeezing in some reading at ten. These routines will prepare their children for the everyday schedule they’d eventually encounter in school.

Parents would also like to place their kids’ sleeping routine down pat. A comforting bedtime routine may include a shower, a change of clothes, a reading of the kids’ favorite fairy tale, a prayer, and a good night kiss. These would make going to bed an inviting routine after a day full of adventures.

But the most important preparation for school may yet be a hearty breakfast. A good breakfast will give children the right amount of fuel to start strong in school. They’ll not only have the mental energy to go through complicated lessons, they’ll also have the positive vibes to make new friends. They will also feel less anxious about the whole back to school experience.

What makes for a hearty breakfast? The great news is that there are a lot of breakfast choices for the family’s nourishment and enjoyment. The traditional Filipino breakfast calls for fried bangus or tocino paired with garlic rice and sunny side eggs on the side. Other choices include pancakes and bacon, oatmeal or cereals with fruits, bread and eggs, and arroz caldo with tokwa’t baboy.

All these choices are best paired with the nutritious goodness of Mott’s 100% Apple Juice. The #1 brand of apple juice in the United States (source: IRI, Calendar YE 12.25.16), it is great tasting nutrition that children can enjoy for breakfast as it consists of 100% real fruit goodness with added Vitamin C. Mothers can trust that they are only giving the best to their children as Mott’s 100% Apple Juice doesn’t contain any artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners. By giving Mott’s 100% Apple Juice for breakfast, the little ones get a strong start to live every day to its fullest.

Mott’s 100% Apple Juice not only comes in 32-ounce & 64-ounce PET bottle for sharing with the family, it is also available in a convenient can that the kids can slip in their lunch box. Children can then enjoy 100% apple goodness in school as well.

Dreams Do Come True This Back-to-School Season!

Boardwalk: Dreams Do Come True This Back-to-School Season!

I am counting the days until school begins.

I am completely aware that I will regret this in the coming months hahaha but it doesn’t take away the fact that I am a super excited first time school mom. In fact, I’ve already started hunting for back-to-school bargains! Speaking of back-to-school bargains, you absolutely need to check out Boardwalk’s Back to School collection. I remember leafing through catalogues of Boardwalk in my high school days (wow, was it that long ago already?) and ticking the items that I wanted. Of course I did not have any money back then so I only ended up with one or two items that I begged my mother to buy for me lol.

What I did not know, though, is that their Back to School collection is full of nice must-haves! Oooh perfect timing. Thank God I haven’t done much shopping yet — I still have enough room for Boardwalk’s cool stuff! I had so much fun browsing their online shop, as I know any other school mom would, too.

With styles like these, it’s gonna be a win-win situation!

But this is not the best news yet. If you purchase from their Back to School collection online, you get the chance to win a Trip to Hong Kong Disneyland for 4!
