9:38:00 AM

Poor Nutrition has been an issue in a lot of Filipino households (6 out of 10) according to the Department of Science and Technology - Food and Nutrition Research Institute (DOST-FNRI) that should be addressed. Both under nutrition and over nutrition can cause an impact on our children with regards to their mental and physical development on the first and obesity or chronic diseases such as diabetes or hypertension on the latter.

The sad thing is that the results on underweight 5-10 year old children last 2011 and 2013 remains unchanged, obesity is still a problem with 30% prevalence rate and chronic energy deficiency continues to affect 10% of adults. According to studies, these problems are caused by poor eating habits like skipping meals, especially during breakfast and/or having an unbalanced diet that may lead to poor performance at school or at work.



As a delicious and easy-to-prepare nutritious cereal drink, Energen aims to educate and encourage Filipino families to appreciate the importance of a healthy and nutritious breakfast to start their busy day right. Containing milk, eggs, cereal, essential vitamins and minerals such as folic acid, calcium, Vitamin A, E, B1, B6 and B12, Energen indeed helps in completing a nutritious and energy-filled breakfast experience.

"Breakfast is the most important meal. Studies have shown that consuming a nutritious breakfast helps ensure that children and adults will have the energy that can sustain their productivity throughout the day. It also helps contribute to the development of mental and physical abilities," said Greg Anonas, Energen Marketing Manager.

To promote a healthy breakfast habit, Energen, in cooperation with the Department of Health League of Registered Nutritionists and Dieticians, they have been actively supporting and educating families about the importance of having a healthy breakfast through feeding programs and community-based activities. They already started with a Breakfast Supplementary Feeding Program in Minalin, Pampanga and just last April 30, 2016, we witnessed their first ever Healthy Breakfast Movement for 2016 at Barangay Commonwealth, Quezon City.



The Energen Healthy Breakfast Movement aims to educate families about the importance of eating a healthy and nutritious breakfast. During the event, families can have free one-on-one consultations with licensed nutritionists and learn nutrition from education talks and of course, enjoy a fresh cup of Energen.



There were also raffle prizes given away to attendees and the crowd was entertained by the sexy and talented Ms. Rochelle Pangilinan as she led a zumba dance session:



The Energen Healthy Breakfast Movement will also be travelling to Cebu City (Barangay Tinago Sports Complex) on May 21, 2016 and to Davao City (Davao City Recreational Center - Almendras Gym) on May 28, 2016. 

For those who would like to taste this healthy and nutritious, easy-to-prepare breakfast, Energen is available in all sari-sari stores, convenienve stores and supermarkets nationwide for only P6.00 SRP per sachet. Try out their ginger, vanilla and chocolate flavors that are truly delicious and a great breakfast for the whole family.
