I was invited to the media launch of Promina held at Spotlight, Don Chino Roces Avenue, Makati City this morning. I went with my younger sister and fellow mommy blogger Renz.

From left to right: Mr. Julio D. Sy Jr. (President of TAO Corporation), Rene dela Calzada (President of TriDharma Marketing Corporation), Mr. Andi Setiadi (Advisor of Indofood), Ms. Susan Buhain (Marketing Manager of Indofood), Fely Velandria (former FNRI consultant), and Dr. Felizardo Gatcheco, MD, MSc (Associate Professor, Pediatric Gastroenterologist and Clinical Epidemiologist)

Ms. Fely Velandria presented the results of national nutrition surveys conducted by the Food and Nutrition Research Institute (FNRI) that reveal the nutrition status of Filipino children aged 0 to 5 years old

Dr. Felizardo Gatcheco talked about “Bridging the Nutrition Gaps via Evidence-based Complementary Feeding”

Promina is a nutritious food supplement for children aged 6 months to 2 years. It is the top selling baby food product in Indonesia and other Asian countries. Promina is produced by Indofood, one of the largest food conglomerates in Indonesia.

Everyone was welcome to try the different variants of Promina

Why Should Mothers Choose Promina for their Babies?

1. Promina is nutritious.
Promina is made from all-natural ingredients and contains 15 vitamins and 8 minerals that aid in the development of healthy brain cells. Promina also contains prebiotic FOS (Fructo Oligo Saccharide) to help the digestive system, making it the perfect complementary food for breast milk. What’s more, Promina has no preservatives, artificial colors, sweeteners and MSG.

Breast milk is the ideal food for infants from 0 to 6 months. As babies grow older, however, they will be needing more calories and nutrients, so in addition to breast milk, more nutritious foods should be given to babies from 6 months onwards. These are called complementary foods. Complementary foods help infants get accustomed to eating the foods that adults eat and acquaint them with the different tastes and textures of food.

2. Promina is taste-appealing.
Seven flavors of Promina will be introduced to the Philippines, namely: chicken and vegetables, brown rice and chicken, brown rice, mung bean, banana, beef and broccoli, and salmon in lemon sauce. With these choices of gourmet meals for your little one, you’ll definitely find one that your baby will love.

3. Promina is affordable.
Mothers on a budget do not have to worry about the price of Promina because it’s quite affordable. You will be surprised that Promina is available in sachets for as low as Php8.75. You can also purchase a box of Promina with 4 sachets for only Php49.00 or a box of Promina for Php68.00. Promina will also be sold in leading supermarkets and sari-sari stores.

  2. Robinson's Supermarket are selling the product at a much, much higher price. Are the prices you posted, the SRP? If so, Robinson's is definitely very high priced.

  3. ok n ok para s tulad kong mom n choosy s food ng baby ko atleast meron ng ibang vviands to choose like mung beans, beef brocolli and so on. new flavor, new good taste. thanks to promina

  4. My 8month old nephew really loves the taste of promina banana flavor… and its very affordable. We haven’t check their prices yet at robinson’s supermarket cos we are buying at tropical foodmart at bf. prices of these products are lower than the SRP.

  5. I just bought promina from the grocery…I believe that it’s nutritious and tastes good…My six month old baby just love it…

  6. when my 1 yr. old daughter tasted promina mas nagustohan nya kaysa ibang brand. currently yan ang pinapakain ko sa kanya…

  7. My 6 mo old baby doesn’t like the “Chicken and Vegetables” flavor of Promina. I think he finds it too salty or maybe he has to get used to eat. I heard about salty porridge could have a bad effect on baby’s kidney and may cause death. But the Brown Rice and Soya flavor is good.
