Say Goodbye To Junk Food

Husband and wife Michael Parayno and Joanna Ledesma decided to live in Bolinao, Pangasinan in order to enjoy a healthy lifestyle right by the seashore. Fresh air plus freshly picked fruits and vegetables right around their beachfront home. Wow, heaven on earth!

 

The Back Story

Everything was fine until their daughter was old enough to eat solid foods and snacks. Susmaryosep, wala palang healthy snacks sa mga tindahan. Puro chichirya: junk food! Ano ba yan? Kaya nga sila tumira sa probinsiya para healthy living ang pamilya nila.

Ayaw nilang ma-program ang anak nila sa junk food. Sa frustration ni mommy Joanna, nagparinig siya sa asawa niya. Wish niya sana meron siyang “dehydrator”: drier para sa mga gulay at prutas sa paligid nila.

 

The Accidental Entrepreneur

Surprised ang neighbors nila nung matikman ang yummy and healthy snacks na kinakain ng anak ni Michael at Joanna. Imagine niyo: apple cinnamon, cheesy carrots, guava java, gummy banana, mango, dragon fruits, atbp!

• NO preservatives

• NO MSG

• NO sugar

Nakiusap ang mga kapitbahay kung pwede sana mag-order din para sa kanilang anak. Wala naman plano ang mag-asawa gawin negosyo ang dehydrated fruit and veggie snacks nila. Healthy eating lang sana ang gusto nila.

“Well, why not – try natin!” sabi ng mag-asawa. Lumaki ang business sa dami ng mga mommy na gusto ng healthy snacks para sa kanilang anak.

Michael and Joanna named their business after their inspiration – ang anak nilang si Simone. Available sa bazaars at weekend markets sa Metro Manila ang Simone’s Original Snacks. (Facebook: Simone’s Original Snacks)

 

The Body-Mind Connection

Amazing ang benefits when you choose healthy snacks instead of chichirya. Mas alert and focused ang mga bata. Healthy body, healthy mind!

Plus, no tooth decay caused by so much sugar sa junk food. By the way, ang cheesy carrots ay #1 kid’s choice. Healthy snacks don’t have to be boring in taste and appearance. Most of all, enjoy ang children sa fruits and veggies.
