Teach your Kids to Eat Safe and Nutritious Cafeteria Food

It’s June and in the Philippines, this means that children are back to school. It also means that we’ll be encountering more traffic! Haha! But kidding aside, I am excited as this is the first time my daughter will be attending school. They had us pack nutritious meals for them for their “snack time”. They gave the parents a list of healthy food that we can pack and a list of food that we should avoid. This is great since we need not worry or think about the other kids bringing unhealthy and junk food. The school seems strict on implementing these “food” rules, and they seem really adamant on wanting to help parents instill healthy eating habits.

Back to School with Wilkins

For moms, like me, a question that often comes up is how do you teach kids to eat safe and nutritious food in school? We can’t be with them 24/7, so how do you make sure that they don’t spend money on unhealthy food or splurge on sweets and candy? I thought about this and here are some of the things that I came up with and heard from my mommy friends:

1. Instill the habit of eating healthy – In our home, we cook healthy food so that our daughter will get used to eating these kinds of food. We try to go for boiled, broiled or grilled food. We avoid fried and fatty food. We also see to it that we have vegetables and fruits. The most accessible food in the house should be healthy! By getting them used to eating healthy food, they will look for the same kind of food in the cafeteria.

2. Teach them proper portioning – They need not bring measuring cups to school. What we do at home to easily remember portioning is by using or hands. Open your hand. Keep your fingers together. This is how much vegetables you should eat. Then for the meat or protein intake, it should be the size of your palm. For rice or any carbohydrate, keep it to half a cup to one cup.

One whole fist is a cup of rice. For spreads or butter, keep it to just a “finger-tip” portion. Make it a fun lesson for your kids by using your hand to explain proper portioning.3. Don’t deprive them of sweets, but limit intake – We avoid junk food, candies and sweets at home, but at least once a week, our daughter gets to try some of these. This is so that she’s aware also of how these stuff look like. I know that I may not be there with her 24/7, so better that she tries them in an environment where I can limit her intake rather than she learns and always eats these things in a place where I don’t get to monitor her and properly explain why she should avoid these unhealthy snacks and drinks.

4. Lead by example – My husband and I try to limit eating junk food in front of our daughter. The best way you can actually teach them is by leading through example.

5. Have them bring clean and safe water for drinking – It’s really best when food and water come from the house. I, personally include a bottle of Wilkins Distilled Drinking water in my daughter’s lunchbox, together with healthy snacks and fruits. But, of course, if you don’t have time to prepare, just tell your children to see to it that the food that they buy is warm and heated enough. Also, it’s best to advise them to look for Wilkins Distilled Drinking water instead of drinking from any place else in school. It’s important to drink safe and clean drinking water to avoid diseases like diarrhea and cholera.

You can trust Mommy Ginger to know the best when it comes to health and education. She wishes to share with all of the…

Clara Ole Potluck FoodFest: A Double Baby Shower Celebration

Two months ago, I discovered products and cooking ingredients that encouraged me to cook. Read all about it here: Check out on What Encouraged me to Cook! I have enjoyed cooking for my family and recently, I had a great time and enjoyed cooking for one of my best friends who is pregnant with her second baby. I got to throw a double baby shower celebration for her and her sister, since both of them were pregnant! It was a cool double baby shower celebration. This party was part of the Clara Ole Potluck Foodfest. The Clara Ole Potluck Foodfest is a series of eight themed potluck mini parties at condo residences. In the party, we got to share our own own signature dishes using Clara Ole products.

Clara Ole Potluck Foodfest 1

It took us weeks to prepare for this baby shower. I am really thankful that the Clara Ole team helped a lot in preparing for the event. The theme that we had for that double baby shower celebration was inspired by the book Dr. Seuss’ Oh the Places you’ll go. This is why we had little hot air balloons dangling from the ceiling. My friend Sharon is having a baby girl and her sister Michelle is having a baby boy. This is why we had to incorporate both the colors blue and pink.

Chicken Lollipop with Clara Ole Dips n’ dressings

When almost everyone was there, I welcomed the guests to an afternoon of good food, fun and surprises! Of course, we started by introducing the dishes that we prepared. The first dish was prepared by Michelle. She prepared Chicken Lollipops with assorted Clara ole dips. It’s a very straight-forward dish but kids love this! All you need to do is to fry the chicken. It’s so easy to preprare.

The second dish was from Sharon. She prepared Grilled pork belly. A lot of people love liempo. They will love it even more when they did what Sharon did which was to use the Clara Ole Barbecue Marinade Hickory.

Clara Ole Dishes

Pasta using Cheesy Pesto Pasta Sauce topped with Sardines and Parmesan

The third dish was prepared by yours truly. For those who don’t know, I love Spanish sardines so what I did was I made pasta using the Clara Ole Cheesy Pesto Pasta Sauce. I cooked spaghetti then mixed the sauce and then topped it with parmesan cheese and Spanish sardines.

Ensaimada topped with Clara Ole Guava Jelly

The last dish which was truly a hit was the Ensaimada topped with Clara ole guava jelly, which my friend Chef Raquel made. This was a great idea! This is something that you can actually pull off and prepare for your own celebration and party!

Ginger shows us how you can give your ordinary favorites a quick and special twist with the help of Clara Olé! We hope this delectable suggestion will help you create the perfect merienda treat on your next gathering, Ms. Bebi Lorenzo! Kindly send us a private message to claim your prize! 🙂

Clara Ole Drinks

We also had a unique drink! We had Dalandan Soda mixed with Clara Ole Truly Fruity Blueberry. It was delicious!

After eating, we played games and here are some games that you can do for a baby shower:

1) Make a Baby using modelling clay – The adults and kids had fun making cute babies using clay. During the party, we had a lot of creative babies that Amy Perez-Castillo, Clara Ole Brand Endorser had a hard time choosing the winner!

The Payoneer Forum: See you there!

Happy Monday, everyone! We just came from Real, Quezon this weekend and oh my, the place was breathtaking! Actually, the trip to Quezon made me realize that there are a lot of places in the Philippines that are still undiscovered and we should all travel within our country first before we go out! The travel made me really sentimental. My thoughts were if Filipinos only realize that we have such a beautiful country and if we do one thing, just one thing every day, to improve our nation and to help others, I think our country would be in a better position and we may even be a first world country.

Real, Quezon: We have such a beautiful country!

Real, Quezon: We have such a beautiful country!

In helping our country, what we can do is assess our own strengths and see if we can help our country by using these strengths. Wouldn’t you feel fulfilled if you wake up every day, doing that thing that you love to do and at the same time, you get to help your country? In my own little way, what I want to do is really to help spread the news about entrepreneurship. I would want to help aspiring entrepreneurs start their own businesses.

I am glad and blessed that I have been given the chance to reach more and more people everyday. This week, I am speaking at the Payoneer Forum. The event is FREE. All you have to do is register here: THE PAYONEER FORUM

I will be with some colleagues in the industry and really brilliant ones! My talk is entitled, Love the Leap: What Aspiring Entrepreneurs Need to Know.

I hope that you can join me on Wednesday and please do say hi! Feel free to approach me.

See you at the Payoneer Forum!

Foodee: Enjoy Food Whenever… Wherever!

My view of FOOD is so different from my how my husband sees food. He always tells me that he sees food as something enjoyable; therefore, he eats very slowly. He enjoys each and every bite! I, on the other hand (he says), only see food as something that fuels my body. If I feel that my tank is almost empty, I gas up, in order to function properly. He says that I see food as something that helps me function, therefore, I eat really fast.

I really need to enjoy eating. Aside from the numerous benefits of chewing food slowly, it will also help remind me that life is too short to rush through it. Recently, I had a marvelous chat with my two friends, Charm and Jayjay. This husband and wife tandem are the proprietors of foodee. Foodee is a food delivery service but they deliver unique products.


We had a chat on branding and there are actually two types of food that they deliver. One branch is called Freezee. Freezee is their line of products that are delivered to your home still frozen.  Most of the Freezee products are dimsum. When I first saw these products, I instantly thought that these products are heaven sent for moms. All you need to do if you want to prepare these items is to thaw them and heat them. I tried some of the products and these were simply amazing. The dimsum were packed and every bite was worth it!



The other line of products that Foodee has is called Yummee. Yummee are their cooked items already and they deliver it to homes and offices.


Their specialties are really the porkchop and the Korean Squid. I have tried both and both are addicting! Don’t say I didn’t warn you. We ordered these two products and ate them at home for two weeks in a row!

Yummee Porkchop

Yummee Porkchop

What I find innovative about the Porkchop is that it’s a good alternative to the whole chicken that you normally order for parties or for guests who come to your house. The porkchop is also cooked uniquely and deliciously that your guests will definitely enjoy eating. I love that how it was cooked is sort of like the Salt and Pepper taste in Chinese restaurants that we all are fond of.

Yumee Korean Squid

Yumee Korean Squid

I also love the way they cooked the Korean Squid. The squid was so tender! I don’t normally take rice but with this dish, I couldn’t stop myself. The other yummee dishes that they have are their Gambas, Stir Fry Curry and Stir Fry Noodles.

For the past two weeks, I have really enjoyed eating at home! These meals from Foodee are really affordable. So if you are a mom, who wants a break from cooking or if you have a big party to throw in the office, fret not! You can relax and just call Foodee. Enjoy food! Enjoy life!

Interview with Entrepreneur Ivorie Acosta of Cookie Bar

People ask me if this section where I interview entrepreneurs and SMEs are solely for moms. Of course not, guys! 🙂 Today, I’m featuring a young lass who’s single and 28 years old. Last week, I featured Ava Diaz Daza, also very young and still single. So, to answer your question, I am very much open to featuring entrepreneurs of all ages, marital status and gender! And today, I am very excited because my young entrepreneur’s business is all about making cookies, and I love love love cookies!

Entrepreneur Ivorie of Cookie Bar

Entrepreneur Ivorie of Cookie Bar

Ivorie Acosta of Cookie Bar is a 28 year old cookie lover. She loves eating, cooking and food styling! She is single but she has been together with her supportive boyfriend for 6 years already. “He’s the one who helped me with the business and he handles the finance side of Cookie Bar,” says Ivorie. This lady is a pretty laid back person. She likes staying home on weekends and she likes trying out new restaurants. She also has this love affair with New York City. Sge goes there every other year since 2009 and she says that it’s a small cookie shop named “Levain Bakery” that inspired her to do my business here in Manila.



The Interview with Ivorie Acosta of Cookie Bar

Ginger: Good day! I’m with Ivorie Acosta, the owner of Cookie Bar. Ivorie, can you please tell me more about your business? What is it about? How long have you been in business?

Ivorie: Cookie Bar is a home based cookie shop since 2009. We specialize on making cookies in different shapes, sizes and textures. We take pride in creating a product list that is only centered on cookies. I started Cookie Bar as a sideline business while I was still a teaching preschool during the day. My main clientele were friends, family and co-teachers. As Cookie Bar gained popularity through word of mouth and social media, the business expanded and now Cookie Bar has it’s own kitchen/commissary where people can pick up cookies or choose from the variety of cookies available daily.

Ginger: Who is your market and why did you choose this market?
Ivorie: My market are young teens and young adults who love sweets! Some of our cookies are pretty rich and filled with different chocolates that’s why some older clients might not enjoy it. We try to make sure that cookie lovers of all ages get to enjoy our cookies so we make different kinds to tap that specific market. We have cookies for Vegans, for Diabetics, for people who like oatmeal, for people who like crunchy cookies or soft batch. Cookies are so simple and quick to make but each tweak in every recipe can make a huge difference is taste and texture.

Ginger: How do you market your products?
Ivorie: The internet is the best way to market your products. Everyone has smart phones and laptops so you have to be present in all the social media platforms. Constant posting of photos and reaching out to your customers is one way to get your products out there!

Cookie Bar

Ginger: How did you come up with this idea? And what made you decide to start this kind of business?
Ivorie: I went on a trip to New York City in 2009 to visit my Mom where she was based. I was really amazed with all the restaurants and bakeries in Manhattan. It’s all filled with wonderful pastries and people just come in and out of these small shops holding some sort pastry. I also noticed how cookies were such a big thing there like cupcakes. One certain bake shop caught my attention because they were known for their COOKIES! Levain Bakery is on the upper west side of Manhattan. It’s a small shop, with no dine-in area, just take out counter for cookies, breads and coffee. I really wanted to replicate their big crusty on the outside and soft on the inside cookies back home. I went back home to Manila, with so much inspiration and an idea of making cookies the next big thing.

Cookie Bar 2

Ginger: Were there any obstacles that you faced when you decided to pursue becoming an Entrepreneur? What are these?
Ivorie: One of the obstacles I faced was deciding to quit my job as a preschool teacher and do Cookie Bar full time. I knew the business won’t be able to grow as quickly as I wanted it if my mind and body wasn’t 100% in it. I had to weigh the pros and cons of staying and leaving my job and eventually I had to decide on choosing to do Cookie Bar full time. It was nerve wracking not knowing If the business will really take off but now that I look back, it made me realize that it was one of the best decisions I made in my life.

Another obstacle I encountered is not knowing how to start registering the business. It was numerous trips to the city hall, BIR and other government offices. There are forms and requirements to be submitted. I did not hire anyone to do the leg work for me. I decided that I had to do it myself to get things done quickly and at the same time, I can learn it for future business endeavors. It really was a learning experience for me.

Ginger: What are three traits that you think an Entrepreneur should have when starting their own business?
Ivorie: Passion – Without this, the business will have no heart. It will have no personality. I think customers can tell if a business is run by remote control rather than a hands on owner who has so much love to his/her products. Patience – It won’t be successful overnight. Your product won’t sell instantly. You also cannot just wait for it to sell. You have to get up and work. Drive – Ask yourself what drives you to do this every single day. Is it for your future, to help others (like your employees), is it to help your family? Every person has a different reason why he or she will start a business but if you focus on a certain goal and why you are doing this, you won’t get confused and get disappointed with problems that come your way.

Ginger: Unforgettable moments or lessons that you learned as an Entrepreneur?
Ivorie: Listen to your customers. They are the ones who can tell you if a product is good or not. If something you like isn’t really selling then there must be something wrong with it. It hard to get criticized but just realize that it’s not a blow on you as a person, it’s the product. I was creating a recipe for a certain event last year, I was so excited to launch it because it took me so many test batches to get it right according to my taste preference. In the end, my clients didn’t order this type of cookie. It wasn’t too appealing to them and I had to scratch if off the menu.

Ginger: What advice can you give to other Entrepreneurs?
Ivorie: Never stop learning. In 2011, I took a cake and bread baking class in The Institute of Culinary Education in New York City just to give myself more knowledge about the basics of baking. I never really had formal baking training so this was really important for me to learn. Always push yourself to become better and always know that there is room for improvement. If you’re not good with numbers or accounting, there’s a class for that too! That’s my next goal. 😀

Ginger: Do you believe that everyone should become entrepreneurs?
Ivorie: No, not everyone is cutout to do business. It’s something you have to be mentally prepared for. Your business becomes your life. You cannot just run away from problems that come your way or even give someone a task only you can handle. If you are the type of person who can accept failure and its inevitability in life, then you can be an entrepeneur.

Ginger: Thank you so much, Ivorie for such inspiring words from such a young entrepreneur. I hope you can share this inspiring article with other aspiring, young entrepreneurs!
