Deciding what’s best for the family is a struggle for every mom. Andi Manzano-Reyes is no stranger to this – although she considers herself a smart homemaker, she still struggles sometimes when it comes to making choices for her family’s health.
Having her first daughter, Olivia, was what motivated Andi and her husband GP to make a lifestyle check. “For me, being a mom has changed the way I make decisions,” she said. 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, and this is where she was also introduced to organically sourced food. Organic products follow a strict standard that ensure there are no artificial pesticides, growth hormones, and synthetic antibiotics used during its production process. “There’s this concern that some products might be made with a lot of chemicals that aren’t going to be helpful for your child’s development-- there’s always that fear.”
Olivia, now 4 years old, loves fruits and vegetables – food that Andi regularly includes in her diet. Since Olivia is very adventurous when it comes to food (especially spicy ones!), she and Andi make preparing food 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 Andi doesn’t always serve organic food to her family, she chooses smart when it comes to Olivia’s milk. She wants to make sure that Olivia gets the best available milk that provides age-appropriate nutrition with the assurance of organic.
After doing thorough research and consulting fellow moms, Andi discovered Promil Organic and choosing it for Olivia’s milk was an easy decision for Andi. Firstly, Promil Organic is made by Wyeth Nutrition, the leading formula milk manufacturer in the Philippines with over 100 years of scientific expertise.
Secondly, Promil Organic is made with 100% organic milk sourced from certified organic dairy farms. It is certified organic by the Organic Certification Center of the Philippines (OCCP) Inspection & Services Inc, following strict organic requirements.
