Ringing in the new school year is a big event for kids. For mothers, however, this time of the year entails strict preparations to make sure their little ones get the right start they need for their new journey. The usual school checklists aside, a comprehensive back-to-school plan is something that every mother should have.
“It is part of a mother’s duties to make sure their child gets the perfect start to their term. This includes planning in advance for their healthy “baons” to making sure their school uniforms are absolutely spotless,” says RJ Buenaventura, Philips General Manager for Personal Health.
He adds, “The challenge for moms is that they have to juggle this responsibility with their hectic schedules. For this, having the right partners can make a huge difference.”
Philips offers a line of domestic appliances designed to help with this. With these tools, both mother and child can definitely breeze through the back-to-school jitters with flying colors.
A healthy start
Nowadays, mothers have to factor the taste of the food as much as its nutritional value. According to Reah Ronsayro, Business Development Manager for Domestic Appliances, “School cafeterias usually lack in nutritious offerings, with sodas and junk food usually filling the menu.”
What makes it even more challenging is that children often prefer these over healthier snacks. Fortunately, healthy and tasty “meriendas” are very easy to prepare now with the right appliances.
The Philips Airfryer is a great kitchen partner for this. The low-fat fryer cuts off 80% of fat from food by using rapid air to cook. Moms can now give their kids their favorite fries and even baked goods (such as muffins and cookies)without worrying about grease and cholesterol.
For the refreshments, the Philips Mini Blender can provide healthy and flavorful drinks in just a few seconds. Mix your kids their favorite shakes using its heat resistant plastic jar. It also comes with an on-the-go smoothie beaker that your kids can take to school.
Don’t let kids be a victim of those awkward I.D. photos. A good oral health partner can give them the confidence they need to give their best smile for their new photos.
JC Gallegossays, “Because children consume more sweets and junk food, they need a toothbrush optimized for their oral needs.”
The Philips Sonicare for Kids support growing smiles. This kid-friendly toothbrush has a dynamic cleaning action that effectively reaches deep between teeth and along the gumline. Additionally, it comes with age-appropriate brush heads that clean and protect teeth at their key developmental stages.
Prim and proper
Give kids a good shot at the most tidy award at the end of their school year. Make sure they look ready for their big day with spotless, creaseless uniforms.
The Philips Steam Iron makes straightening clothes effortless. It has an Ionic DeepSteam feature that removes the toughest of creases by releasing small steam particles that reach deep into the fabric. It can also be used for a variety of textiles (from cotton to linen) and comes with a premium soleplate that glides easily and smoothly.
According to Reah, “Starting the year right can be quite daunting especially for mothers. But with the right partners, it is easy to ensure that they cover everything down to the smallest details.”
RJ closes, “Getting the right start to the school year can give kids the encouragement they need to perform well. As mothers, it falls within your responsibility to make sure they are well-prepared for their new journey.”
