Anyway, we have a saying, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away". I agree on this quote that by eating apples--or any fruit--will keep us healthy and far from illness.
As a mother, this is one of the things that I would always pray to the Lord, to give me and my son good health. For the past nine years of being a mom, I thank God for not giving Kib a major illness (although I had dengue in 2011 but still I thank the Lord that it was me and not my son who had that illness). I also started to learn the value of good health when my father got terribly sick in 2007 (see blog post here).

The launch of Mott's 100% Apple Juice in easy-to-open cans happened last May 7th, 2016 at Bonifacio High Street. The theme of the event was family picnic. There were lots of activities that the kids and parents enjoyed during the event, like human statues, face painting, picture balloons, treasure hunts, hula-hoops, life-sized tic-tac-toe, ladders and slides, and ring and bucket toss games. Apart from these activities, there were also an abundant food sampling of corn munchies with apple sauce, applelicious spaghetti, and caramelized biscuits.
Here are some of the photos at the play area:

On the launch of Mott's 100% Apple Juice in easy-to-open cans, Janice Villanueva (Mommy Mundo founder) and her family were also introduced to the media as the brand ambassador of Mott's 100% Apple Juice in the Philippines. Janice inspires all modern moms on a mission to balance her career and family to serve meals that are full of health benefits, especially something the kids will love. Janice said, "After learning that Mott's 100% Apple Juice has only three ingredients--water, apple juice concentrate, and vitamin C--, I knew that it's the kind of pure apple juice we've been looking for. It's definitely a drink for all seasons and occasions!"
