Energen, A Healthy Breakfast Gets You Going Through The Day

One of the things that I learned from my mom is not to skip breakfast, specially a healthy breakfast. It is the most important meal of the day as it gives us the energy that we need as we work through the day.

According to the Department of Science and Technology – Food and Nutrition Research Institute (DOST-FNRI), 6 out of 10 Filipino households suffer from poor nutrition. Having poor or under nutrition stunts mental and physical development while over nutrition leads to obesity and chronic diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure. That’s why it is really important to have a healthy breakfast.

Last April 30, as part of the campaign of Energen to promote proper nutrition they launched the Energen Healthy Breakfast Movement in Barangay Commonwealth, Quezon City. Residences of Brgy. Commonwealth enjoyed the delicious and easy-to-prepare nutritious cereal drink, Energen. During the launch families were educated and encouraged to appreciate the importance of a healthy and nutritious breakfast to start the day right. So aside from the free Energen for all there were also free lecture, zumba dance which was led by Rochelle Pangilinan and of course some games and prizes to make the day livelier.

According to Mr. Greg Anonas, Energen Marketing Manager, “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.”

This activity of Energen is in cooperation with the Department of Health League of Registered Nutritionists and Dietricians. They have been actively supporting and educating Filipino families about the importance of having a healthy breakfast through feeding programs and community-based activities. One of these is the Breakfast Supplementary Feeding Program in Minalin, Pampanga where Energen has been an instrument in improving the weight and nutrition of malnourished kids.

Dr. Gemilinao D.L. Aligui, former president of the Philippine Association of Nutritionists shares that “Energen also helps empower people to know how to be nutritionally able and decisive about their health.”

The Energen Healthy Breakfast Movement will continue to spread the word on the following communities at Barangay Tinago Sports Complex in Cebu City on May 21 and at Davao City Recreational Center – Almendras Gym, Davao City on May 28.

Energen got its different flavors like ginger, vanilla and chocolate and it is only P6.00 SRP at your favorite sari-sari stores, convenience stores or at the nearest supermarkets nationwide.
