I look forward to mealtimes at home with my husband and son. That’s where I get to serve my two boys dishes prepared with love. Of course, I make sure that what I feed them are healthy and delicious. I also make it a point to only use safe tableware.
When it comes to serving healthy meals for your family, using safe and quality tableware is almost as important as the quality of food you put in it. It would be futile to spend time, effort, and money in cooking a nutritious feast if the plates and bowls you serve it with contain dangerous chemicals that can seep into the food and harm your family’s health.
CDC Manufacturing, the makers of Melawares, Perfect Dining, and Urban Kitchen, knows this all too well. The company currently educates mothers on the role of safe tableware in ensuring complete nutrition.
“When it comes to making healthy food choices for the family, investing in safe tableware is equally important. Because mothers are commonly the most involved in the process of preparing and serving every meal that goes on the table, we hope to arm them with this knowledge,” CDC Manufacturing Marketing Manager Chriselda Chua said.
In making sure that its melamine tableware is made of premium quality and safe for the family, Melawares only uses imported and 100% melamine in all of its products. Other plastic tableware, on the other hand, may use urea , a material of substandard quality. “Why is melamine considered safer than urea? When melamine sets, it does not migrate to or contaminate the food that we eat, while urea mixes with the food and may cause health hazards particularly in the digestive and respiratory systems,” Chua explained.
Apart from being safer, melamine is also durable and resistant to stains and heat unlike urea, which is vulnerable to stains, less durable and less heat-resistant. “Serving hot food with substandard plastic tableware may cause it to chip or melt and become deformed, ” Chua added.
With more than 30 years’ experience in designing and producing outstanding tableware for the home, office and commercial food service establishments, CDC Manufacturing Corporation has built a solid reputation in safety, quality and durability.
To further generate awareness on the importance of safe tableware for the family, the company is conducting the “Mommy and Me” mall tour series at different parts of the country. In partnership with ELBA Philippines, San Miguel Purefoods, Monterey, Magnolia, Nestle Maggi and SM Homeworld, the “Mommy and me” event is packed with activities that foster bonding time between moms and kids. The event features a cooking demonstration for easy-to-prepare recipes for both moms and kids.
Moms can also spend time at the face painting station with their kids and have matching face decor. There is also a Vintage Party Station set up for little girls who want to play tea time. Kids can also unleash their creativity in designing their own plates in the Design Your Own Plate Station. The winning design will get produced and the winner will get to have his / her own set of the design. And, since bonding moments will not be complete without keepsakes, guests can visit the fun photo booth station, ready to take the best mommy and me shot!
CDC Manufacturing Corporation’s mall tour series is set to visit SM branches and various locations in Batangas, Laguna, Bacolod, Iloilo, Cebu, Davao, Cagayan de Oro and General Santos.
