Kinder Choco Cereal Happiness

Everyday its a struggle for me to make my little one eat merienda. He would run away from me or hide, thats how hard it is. So, obviously he is very picky when it comes to food. So I always get a variety of food from the groceries for him to try and I discovered the Kinder Choco Cereal. So far this is his favorite snack! Everytime I give him this kinder Choco Cereal he would scream “yipee ya yo” I know he is happy when he shouts this line out! It is always paired with a smile and sometimes with a dance move! That’s how happy he is with his snack.

It is a nutritiously yummy snack with a combination of rich smooth milky cream, chocolate, and five types of crispy cereals-Rice, Barley, Wheat, Sorghum, and Millet which makes it creamy and crispy at the same time! It also comes with a spoon! Handy right?!

This is definitely a thumbs up for me no doubt about it! You might want to try it out and I bet your little one will love it too! 

Check out hypermarkets and supermarkets nationwide, you’ll find Kinder Choco Cereal there! 😉

Educational Toys from

At home, I always think of fun activities for my 2 year old son. I want him to learn while we play and it’s been very effective. He never gets bored of learning simply because I don’t force him if he doesn’t want to. When I buy toys I choose those that can improve his sensori-motor & cognitive skills so that it can prepare him for school and I make sure that he enjoys every bit of our playtime. Now that I’m pregnant, I can’t go out and shop for new educational toys for my son but luckily there is Discovery Depot! It is a good source to find great educational toys that can activate those skills that I wanted for my son. This is very convenient for me right now and their website is very easy to navigate. Check out their website! .

Mamas & Papas Sola City Stroller Review

I was able to know about Mamas & Papas by attending to their product launch. Listening to their presentation made me want to have my own Mamas & Papas stroller and luckily we now have one. We have the Sola City Blue sea.

When we got home, I started assembling it. It looks complicated to assemble but it’s actually NOT. It was easy and it only took me a few minutes.
Here are the features that I love about this stroller:
> You can customize the color of liner and hood of your choice.
> Big storage at the bottom.
> Adjustable handle (can cater to tall and small parents)
> Big Canopy that can protect our little one. This comes with a peek-a-boo window and a rain cover
>The front wheels can swivel and can be locked too.  The wheels can take on a bumpy terrain.
>Safety lock in the wheels
>You can recline the seat and can be forward facing or parent facing.
Now to the most important part of the review is our family experience with Sola City stroller.
The first time that we took it out was at the High Street, we wanted to try the stroller first before bringing it to our trip in US. When we arrived ,with no hesitation our son just sat on it and loved it! He stayed there the whole time.  When we returned to the parking lot, we tried to convince him to go down. He cried! This was the first time that he wanted to stay on the stroller. I was really amazed because we had a hard time to make him ride his previous stroller.
So yes, we decided to bring the stroller with us in our US trip.
Overall, we had no problem with the stroller. The ride was smooth and easy, the large storage helped a lot especially in shopping and our son’s diaper bag. When we go out, he rides his stroller and sleeps in it too (he slept for 3 hours max)  that’s how comfortable he is with this stroller. There are times that we have to change his diaper and we did it in his stroller because of the big comfortable space of the seat. I would highly recommend this to the mothers out there who are still looking for THE RIGHT stroller. We have a good experience with it and we honestly love this stroller!
Happy to say that this is a de la Cruz family tried and tested stroller!

Have a Mott’s Applelicous Day, Everyday!

Last Wednesday’s event was a success! I learned a lot of things from fun facts to reading labels! So here goes…

The event started with a delicious dish, beef kebab served with Mott’s apple juice drink, from Earth Kitchen BGC. The place was just perfect for this event, it was like an indoor garden.
After eating, the program started right away with interesting introduction & presentation from different speakers about Mott’s and the goodness that it brings in the family.
Congratulations to Ms. Janice Villanueva for being the first ambassador of  Mott's
Congratulations to Janice Villanueva for being the first ambassador of Mott’s in the Philippines
Just to summarize:
Have you tried Mott’s 100% Apple Juice? 
     Yes! It tastes sweet and fresh.

Mott’s 100% Apple Juice comes in 2 sizes, 32oz and 64oz
Did you check the label?
     Yes! There are only 3 ingredients: water, apple juice concentrate and ascorbic acid.
     There is no added sugar and you get a lot of Vitamin C.
     The ingredients indicated are simple and no unfamiliar words for us to doubt.
Is concentrated apple juice better than the non-concentrate?
     Yes, simply because there is no additives in it ( sugar or chemical preservatives).
Is this healthy?
     Yes, it provides us with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
Sounds good right? Just what every family needs.
