Give Your Children The Extra Protection With Ceelin Plus

Each time the ‘ber months arrive it tags along an assortment of diseases and illnesses, like flu, fever, coughs and cold, and the likes. The little one is suffering from a mild allergic rhinitis, so I expect our mornings and nights to be filled with sniffles, nose wiping, and the constant requests for his “pantanggal sipon” {an all-natural soothing balm made from peppermint, eucalyptus, and bergamot essential oils which I always keep handy at home}. The fact that it is a tad difficult to get Jared to take his meds and vitamins also complicates things! And if you add the news about the threats of Zika Virus and dengue to the mix, it will be enough to make this mum lose her mind worrying about her child!

This is why I thought the new Ceelin Plus TV ad is very timely and relevant. It sums up all the worries and concerns that mums have today while reminding us that it  really is a must that we make it our goal to keep our children healthy with strong immune system to fight off these season-related illnesses. Apart from making sure they eat healthy and drink enough water, as well as get enough rest during the day and sufficient sleep at night to help their little bodies recover from the demands of the day, it is also a must that we provide them with a supplement that will not only help them keep the sickness at bay, but also makes their bodies stronger.

Since the beginning I have only trusted Ceelin, and later on Ceelin Plus, for my son’s additional protection. It has the best combination of Vitamin C and Zinc through ZincPlus Technology, that provides superior protection from sickness thereby lessening occurrence of sickness and reducing the severity and shortening the bout of sickness in case your child is sick. And did you know that the Vitamin C and Zinc content in 1 teaspoon of Ceelin Plus is equivalent to 10 glasses of milk or 59 pieces of biscuits?! Check out their new TV ad for more information. This is good news for me since the little one simply refuse to drink milk from a glass and he, for some unknown reasons, is not too fond of eating biscuits.

Summer is indeed upon us and if you are one of those mums who are driven to their wit’s end with a constant blubber of “Mum, I’m bored!” or “Mum am tired of staying at home!” or just simply looking for something awesome for your little ones to do during their vacation, then you must check out the Hot Wheels Epic Race!

Hot Wheels Epic Race had its Central Qualifying event at SM Megamall on 9-10 April, and its South Qualifying event at SM BF Paranaque last weekend. Its last and North Qualifying event will be held at SM San Lazaro on 23-24 April and promises to be one awesome event for boys who seem to be all car-crazy {oh well, even big boys are, come to think of it!}. Too bad we’ve missed out on the 2 previous events but I sure hope we can catch the last event this weekend or hopefully, the Semi Finals taking place on 14 May in SM Mall of Asia.

The event was centered on the brand’s purpose of exhilaration and achievement for every kid. Here boys aged 3-10 years who possess a daring, imaginative, driven, and competitive attitude can get a chance to race their favorite Hot Wheels cars at the gravity-driven track set. The fastest 20 from each of the qualifying sites will advance to the semi finals.

To qualify for the Hot Wheels Epic Race all you have to do is:

  • Purchase at least 2 Hot Wheels Basic Cars from the participating store
  • You get a maximum of 2 trials per car and the fastest speed will be recorded
  • Top 20 fastest speed record will be shortlisted to join the Area Qualifying Rounds

Another feature that I am sure all Hot Wheels fans will love is the chance to view a living diorama with improved tracks, connectors, launchers, and stunt kits from the all-new Track Builder Unlimited. Kids will get loads of ideas here on how they can transform their own rooms into a How Wheels Epic race track! This sure is a great way to make your summer epic, right?

Hot Wheels also sent us a Speedtropolis Track Set and the little one was so excited to build it with his dad before I even took pictures of it! He’s even asked me to get him another Hot Wheels car so his new buddy will not be lonely. We shall be sharing about it next on Jared’s Little Corner.

Introducing #BeloBaby: A New Line of Natural Products For Babies + Children

announcement, events, products, children products, products for children, natural soaps + bath products, earth-friendly products

I have never been more conscious about the products I patronize and use until I became a mum. It did not help that my little man was born with such a sensitive skin that I had to scrutinize each product I use on him and make sure they are made from natural ingredients and are devoid of harmful chemicals that might do more harm than good on my son’s skin. It is also the reason why I was curious about the new all-natural line of baby and children products that one of the skin authorities in the country, Belo, is introducing very soon. This mum was excited to be invited to their product launch and get first dibs on these promising new products.

The Belo Baby launch was held at the lovely Museum Cafe in Makati last week and each guest was made to choose among the 3 different qualities that we consider when choosing products for our children. I opted for “safe” as I always go for dermatological-tested and natural products for the little one, products that I am sure won’t harm or irritate my son’s sensitive skin. Mums who choose the same qualities are seated together in one table. We later found out that there will be a little game later on in the day and those we were seated with will be our teammates. We were not as lucky as the other team who won in the end, but all mums were given a bag of Belo Sun Expert products to take home and try. Very timely as the weather these days are getting noticeably hotter by the second and we need to protect our skin from the sun’s harmful rays!

It was also in this little fun game that I learned the following trivia about baby’s skin:

  • A baby’s skin is not fully-developed and is not an efficient barrier to infection just yet
  • A baby’s skin is paper thin and is about 20-30% thinner than adult skin
  • A baby’s skin is very permeable and allows more substances through compared to an adult’s
