Birch Tree and DepEd's 'Me and My Milk' Campaign

Monday, July 27, 2015

     Hi dearies! Last week, I was invited to a very timely campaign for the kids and kids at heart. Who here loves drinking milk? I forgot what age I stopped drinking milk. All I know, I got hooked on drinking chocolate powdered drink so I guess not drinking milk in my younger years is taking its toll on me now. I can feel that I have brittle bones and there are times that I complain of back pains because of bad posture. Milk is a nutritionally loaded food drink, being a good source of Calcium, Phosphorus, Magnesium and Protein, all essential in the proper growth and development of bones and teeth. That's why drinking milk should not stop after breast-feeding years or when a child turns five.

     I know there are parents, especially those in the low economic sector here in country who scrimps on buying this essential drink. A healthy mind and body are two of the best gifts you can give a child. Thus, New Birch Tree Fortified and the Department of Education with Marylindbert International partnered in an advocacy called “Me and My Milk” that encourages kids to drink milk at home and even in school. Scroll down dearies to know more about this program and I do hope from now on you'll encourage your child to drink milk everyday :)

     "Starting a milk drinking habit as a child can lead to a lifetime of health benefits," said Edwin Africa, Vice President and General Manager of Snow Mountain Dairy Corp. "This partnership hopes to form milk drinking habit among children for a healthier and stronger future for them.” 

    Schools are venues where knowledge and values are taught and behavior formed. New Birch Tree Fortified partnered with the Department of Education and Marylindbert International to educate kids of the different benefits of milk and ultimately form a milk drinking habit.

Encouraging mothers to let their kids drink milk instead of sugary or caffeine-filled beverages will help ensure that these children grow up to be productive and responsible citizens," said Usec. Dina Ocampo of the Department of Education
     New Birch Tree Fortified will bring the campaign to different public schools in the Philippines to promote the milk-drinking habit. They will provide free educational materials to benefit educators, parents and students. Initially, the advocacy will be brought to the following regions: 

  • National Capital Region (NCR) 
  • Central Luzon (Region 3) 
  • CALABARZON (Region 4A) 
  • Ilocos Region (Region 1)

     This campaign is something that I'm going to support because I also want my son to be involved to make drinking 2 glasses of milk everyday a habit. I also encourage you to support this campaign of the New Birch Tree Fortified and Department of Education. I'm sure your kids will love New Birch Tree Fortified because:
