I love school events! When I was still studying, it’s the time when students and teachers gather for extra-curricular activities but with a special purpose, either for charities, environmental cause or for personal development. When an invite from Jolly Cow Fresh Milk through Nuffnang Philippines came, which is to cover their My Dream Job in a Glass of Fresh Milk campaign in Angelicum College in Quezon City, I was super excited because I’d like to see how other children enjoyed school events.
Jolly Cow launched the My Dream Job in a Glass of Fresh Milk campaign with the following objectives:
- To educate children the importance of drinking Fresh milk every day to achieve their dream.
- To help establish a strong foundation for kids that will help them as they grow older.
- To promote proper nutrition that will help kids to become successful.
- To teach children the value of recycling.
Why drink Jolly Cow Fresh Milk?
- 100% Natural. It only undergoes a process that lengthens its shelf life. No chemical or fortification is made.
- Contains all nutrients of milk like calcium, protein, carbohydrate and etc. that are good for the body.
- Convenient. Easy to prepare.
- Consistent in quality. Unlike with powdered milk, it always depends on how you mix it with water. The amount of milk powder and water affects the consistency of milk.
I actually tasted Jolly Cow Fresh Milk and it was surprisingly yummy even at room temperature. I always drink my fresh milk chilled but with Jolly Cow, it was given to us straight from the carton, no aftertaste. This is because Jolly Cow Fresh Milk has 3.5% fat content which makes the milk tastes better, the highest among the other brands in the market today. It is sourced from Germany.
Jolly Cow prepared fun and educational activities for the kids while getting the message across about the important of drinking milk every day. They invited Wanlu and his puppets and prepared a short skit about the importance of calcium in their diet.
Did you know that kids aged 4 to 8 years old need 1000 milligrams of calcium a day for optimal bone health? That’s according to Kids Health. An 8-0z. of cow’s milk (either fresh or low-fat milk) provides 300 milligrams of calcium. Aside from milk, other sources of calcium are orange juice, soy products, cheese, bread and vegetables like broccoli.
Wanlu and his puppets enumerated some of the effects of calcium deficiency such as smaller height, thin body (payat), tooth decay, frequent absences because of sickness and inability to excel in extra-curricular activities because of low energy or matamlay.
Puppet-making activity commenced after Wanlu’s show, the kids had their materials ready while Wanlu taught them how to make a simple puppet out of socks.
Jolly Cow mascot also graced the event, the kids were happy to see this jolly character.
During the show, Wanlu asked some of the students “Anong gusto mo paglaki mo?” The kids proudly said their dream jobs such as fireman, doctor, teacher, etc. Prior to the event, Jolly Cow staff already asked all the students about their dream jobs because it will be placed in these cute tumblers. These tumblers were distributed to the kids filled with Jolly Cow Fresh Milk.
This is to remind and encourage the kids to drink their milk in order to achieve their dreams. If adults have a dream board, kids have a dream tumbler, cute!
A dream wall was also provided and the kids will post about their dreams. Jolly Cow mascot is in the board to inspire them to drink their milk.
Jolly Cow gift packs were given to the students to jump start their Fresh Milk every day habit.
Part of Jolly Cow’s campaign is to teach the students the value of recycling. As part of the campaign, the school will collect Jolly Cow Fresh Milk empty packs. This is part of a contest together with other two schools, St. Mary’s Academy and St. Anthony School. The school with the most number of Jolly Cow Fresh Milk empty packs collected will have a chance to tour The Mind Museum.
***Just a reminder, fresh milk should not be substituted for breastmilk for children under 1 year old. For kids 1 to 2 years old, give whole milk to dietary fats they need for normal growth and brain development. Kids 2 years old and above can switch to low-fat or non-fat milk. (Source: kidshealth.org)
