Nestlé Choose Wellness Expo: Achieving wellness through a balance of nutrition and physical activity10:51 AM
Nestlé Philippines celebrated the Nutrition Month with its annual Nestlé Choose Wellness Expo. Now on its 6th year, the Expo carried on its tradition of spreading practical nutrition and fitness information while demonstrating the benefits that Nestlé brands provide.

Meanwhile, much to the crowd's delight, Coach Jim Saret shared his famous 4-Minute Workout. The exercises are shown below being demonstrated by his lovely wife.
So basically, you just give yourself 4 minutes a day to do a series of 10 Jumping Jacks, 10 Squats, 10 Push-ups, and 10 Lunges for each leg. You will have to repeat the series until you reach 4 minutes. Interestingly, this short workout can already burn up to 600 calories. Of course, Coach Jim reminded us that this workout will only be effective if it is partnered with a healthy, well-moderated diet. He recommended a breakfast of Nestlé Fitnesse Cereal and fresh fruits.
Leslie Go-Alcantara, Corporate Wellness Head, maintains that we should always consume a variety of foods because there is no one food that can contain all the nutrients that our body needs. A healthy diet means the right amounts of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, and minerals. Nestlé brands are formulated to offer different benefits for a healthy diet. For example:
- NESCAFÉ Classic has only 6 calories;
- MILO has protomalt that give kids more energy;
- Maggi has 40% less sodium than table salt;
- Bear Brand Instant has Iron which helps kids perform well in school;
- NIDO has protein, calcium, and zinc to help kids grow taller;
- Coffee-Mate has zero transfat; and,
- CHUKIE has Calci-N, a proprietary ingredient of Nestlé for better calcium absorption.
It was my first time to attend the Nestlé Choose Wellness Expo and I enjoyed a lot because I learned so many things about fitness, nutrition, and the many benefits of Nestlé products. I'm guilty of the fact that I do not regularly exercise. Come to think of it, even installing mounting brackets for tv is already considered a physical activity. Or household chores. I really do have to keep this in mind.
Looking forward to the next Nestlé Choose Wellness Expo! Hope you were also able to experience it.
