Give a Happy and Healthy Christmas to your Kids

It's almost Christmas again, which means you're probably thinking about the greatest Christmas gifts to get the kids on Christmas Eve. This gift-giving is a Filipino family custom, and it is one of the most anticipated aspects of the holiday season for both children and the young at heart (aside from attending the Christmas Mass and the Noche Buena).

Toys, gadget, and clothing are the most common gifts, along with sweet goodies like chocolates and candies. But for this and the next Christmases. . . and the one after that, you might want to shake things up and give the kids healthy snacks instead of the toys, gadgets, and clothing you had planned. After all, if this pandemic has taught us anything, it's that excellent health comes first, alongside the love and care of family and friends.

It's important to remember that "healthy" doesn't always imply "bland and boring," because "healthy" may also be "wonderful" and "tasty." Try giving Gullón's Dibus Sharkies and Mini Crackers, ChekHupKokoo ®'s Chocolate Drink, and Andros' Fruit Me Up. 

Mini Crackers

Gullón’s Mini Crackers are, as the name suggests, bite-sized biscuits—only tastier and more nutritious than their other brand counterparts. Made with a sprinkling of milk and soya, these Mini Crackers are made with high oleic sunflower oil, making them good for heart health. They also contain healthy servings of fiber for a healthier digestive tract and protein for enhanced cell health and repair.

Dibus Sharkies

Dibus Sharkies, also from Gullón, are chocolate-flavored cereals that happen to be gluten- egg-, and lactose-free. Like Gullón’s Mini Crackers, Dibus Sharkies also contains just the right amounts of fiber and protein, along with a nice serving of carbs that will add more to your kids’ energy reserve.

Fruit Me Up

Fruit Me Up by Andros, meanwhile, is fruit in a pouch, a jelly-like treat made from real, fully ripe fruits to ensure natural sweetness with every serving. It comes in four flavors, each packed with vitamins and minerals: Apple Banana, Mango Banana Passion, Soursop Apple, and Strawberry Pink Guava. Among other things, a pouch of Fruit Me Up contains lots of vitamin C and antioxidants that are sure to enhance your kids’ immune system, thus helping them better fight off illnesses and stay healthier.


Finally, Kokoo Chocolate Drink by ChekHup® is a healthy, cholate-y beverage that kids are sure to love. Made from the finest quality cocoa plus a hint of hazelnut, Kokoo is equal parts sweet and creamy, with an unmistakable aroma guaranteed to get the kids all excited for their next cup. It is sweetened by ChekHup’s premium rock sugar, making Kokoo’s sugar content considerably lower than other chocolate drinks. Even so, it is just as yummy, or even yummier, but with the right serving of energy and protein.

At the end of the day, kids are a hard-to-please bunch, especially when it comes to healthy eating. But give them the right kinds of yummy snacks and you will eventually win them over—so much that they will be asking for more. And what better way to start than by giving your kids healthy snacks like Dibus Sharkies and Mini Crackers by Gullón, Kokoo Chocolate Drink by ChekHup®, and Fruit Me Up by Andros.

But again, this is the season of giving, so it wouldn’t hurt to give the kids the other things they deserve.
