Start New Year with a healthy lifestyle! Nature’s Heart, is dedicated to offering healthier food and drinks of exceptional quality, taste and value, is inviting more people to get active via its ride and move event that highlights how healthier food and drinks help provide the energy needed to complete regular daily activities, and even new fitness activities. 

Themed ‘Ride and Move As One with Nature’s Heart’ the event introduced guests to the challenging world of ‘spinning’, indoor bicycle riding classes set to high-energy, cutting-edge sound and lighting, led by inspirational instructors at a  leading specialist fitness studio, here today. 

The event comes at a time when Malaysians need to get healthy.  The National Health and Morbidity Survey 2015 showed that 47.7% of adults have high cholesterol levels . Adding to the health issues about 17.7 per cent of adults are obese based on the World Health Organization (1998) classification  , while about one out of three are overweight . 

The same survey revealed that 94% of Malaysian adults do not eat enough fresh fruits and vegetables , when fibre has been shown to be essential to a healthy balanced diet. 

Nature’s Heart’s full offering includes Multi Grains, Fruits & Vegetables drink mix, Milled Flax Seeds, Chia Seeds, Roasted Cashew Nuts (Salted), Roasted Mixed Nuts, Roasted Almonds (Salted), Roasted Macadamia Nuts (Salted), Dried Apricots, Dried Cranberries and Oat Biscuits with Raisin. The full range is available exclusively at Guardian. 

During this Chinese New Year festive season, mouse mommy also take this opportunity to homemade tong yuan aka glutinous rice ball with Nature’s Heart Superfood that contains multi grains, fruits and vegetables. 

MR was happily helping mouse mommy to mix up all the glutinous flour, Nature’s Heart Superfood and fresh pandan leaves blend juice via Philips Viva collection blender.

We make two dough that one green colour healthy Nature’s Heart Superfood dough, and another one fresh blue peas flower dough. Ops! MR was creatively mix both colour dough and form an “earth design tong yuan”! My creative boy! Cool idea to remind us on healthy, go green and environmental care of our living earth!  

Nature’s Heart’s products are known for their health promoting benefits are sourced from selected countries of origin including Australia, India , Turkey and the United States of America. 

Nature’s Heart aims to add convenience, taste, versatility and affordability to make it easier to start on a healthy lifestyle and to stick to it as these snacks and food can be consumed on their own, or conveniently added to food or drinks for nutritional benefit.

Thoughtfully packed in resealable bags, consumers can exercise mindful portion control by having only as much as they want, saving the rest for later without waste. 

To prepare for the challenging workout, Joanna Soh, Asia’s No. 1 Fitness YouTuber lead a workshop on creating an edible terrarium from Nature’s Heart products, giving participants more reasons and options to enjoy their favorite Nature’s Heart snacks and food. 

Spinning can burn up to 400 to 600 calories per hour . If you’re pursuing high-intensity activities such as these you need good food  . This edible terrarium is a feast for the eyes, and tasty. By using Nature’s Heart Chia Seeds, Dried Cranberries, Roasted Mixed Nuts and Oat Biscuits with Raisins as ingredients, it helps in providing nutrition benefits. Ideal as a treat after you’ve completed a particularly challenging workout, or even as a special breakfast,” Ms Joanna Soh explained. 

Guests including many who have never attended a spinning class found the workout a challenge, and were glad to dig into the the Nature’s Heart edible terrarium that they had prepared earlier. 

According to Product Manager – Healthcare Own Brand, Guardian Health and Beauty, Mr Tan Eu Jin, the brand is as popular for its convenient snacks of roasted nuts, dried fruits and baked cookies, as it is for its healthy beverage and food such as chia seed and milled flax seed

“Nature’s Heart’s purpose is to make snacking full of goodness,  and tasty, There’s a preconception that healthy snacks are not as tasty and appetising as less healthy fare. Nature’s Heart is working on changing these myths by organising activities that let more people sample creative ways to add our healthy snacks, drinks and foods to their diets.”

“The health status of Malaysians based on the Ministry of Health’s findings moved us to find a healthier alternative that could add goodness to daily diets while being convenient, affordable, versatile and tasty. Nature’s Heart ticks all the boxes. It is also affordable and widely available through more than 400 Guardian stores nationwide, and via the Guardian e-store,” Mr Tan added.

“These products can be consumed anytime of the day. A useful tip for those who find it challenging to commit to a change in diet is to focus on one meal a day such as breakfast and gradually incorporate goodness and a more nutritional diet at all meals. Similarly for fitness, check your fitness level first with your doctor, and then incorporate low-intensity workouts such as brisk walking for 20 minutes per day as a start. And have some Nature’s Heart snacks with you to keep you going,” said Ms Joanna Soh. 

“Try Nature’s Heart snacks, and recreate the Nature’s Heart Edible Terrarium for yourself and your loved ones– tasting is believing. And get moving to get healthy,” Mr Tan said in closing. Can click here to read my edible blog link here

Lovely Pigeon Beautiful Me Workshop With Mommies!

Mouse mommy was attending Pigeon Beautiful Me Workshop with mummies at Isetan The Japan Store, Kuala Lumpur last weekend.  It is a nice moms day out together with Pigeon Malaysia.

Being a mom is a tough yet sweet job. Many things need to learn, explore and experience together with our kids and family. When it comes to real life mom, theoretical and practical are always two different things.

Thank you friendly Ms Jed Chow, marketing manager from Pigeon Malaysia welcome us! It is a fun and packed workshop!

Pigeon Malaysia was conducted a wonderful workshop for parents that having skin concerns during pregnancy such as striae and pigmentation, how to gently take care newborn baby skin, nappy rash, eczema and so on.

The workshop was kick-start with Dr Leong, paediatrician to share with us the anatomy, physiology and external factors that might irritate to our skin.

Mouse mommy was learning some new knowledge during Dr Leong’s sharing session on “Skincare for Pregnant Moms & Newborn Babies”. Mouse mommy has applied nappy cream whenever there is redness or nappy rashes happen to my baby MH bum area especially during newborn time.

Mouse mommy does encounter before a situation whereby nappy cream does not working after I had apply it on baby MH’s bum for more than 1 week. No wonder! It could be fungal infection instead of normal nappy rash.

Dr Leong mention that parents will be able to spotted some red rash spots around the nappy region. If the nappy rash does not improve / heal for more than 5 days after frequently apply the nappy rash cream/ skin barrier cream, then recommended to consult doctor. It might be fungal infection and required anti-fungal cream application.

Baby’s face, nappy and neck region is very sensitive and susceptible area during the infantile period. Sweat, harsh cleanser, cow milk, pee, saliva and pooh might contribute to irritate the baby’s skin, causing dehydration and skin itchiness. 

Baby will feels uncomfortable, crying, skin itchiness and try hard to scratch their skin. This will worsen the baby’s skin condition.

It is important to use the Correct and Gentle Cleanser cum Lotion to take cares our baby’s skin such as the Pigeon Newborn Pure Skincare Series that contain Natulayer

Natulayer is made with ingredients that stimulate vernix and ceramide to hydrate and protect baby’s skin by locking in moisture.

The Pigeon’s purifying wash gently yet effectively cleanses baby’s skin and excellent to keep the skin moisture level. 

After bathing, baby’s skin tend to get some dehydration, it is advisable to put on Pigeon moisturizing lotion immediately after bath to prevent baby’s skin from drying.

Glad that Pigeon Malaysia is specialized in baby products that cater for mothers and babies. 

Pigeon offers a wide range of products such as Pigeon Liquid Cleanser, Pigeon Baby Wipes, Pigeon Newborn Pure Nourishing Shampoo, Pigeon Purifying Body Wash, Pigeon Disney MagMag Straw Training Cup, milk bottles and pacifier, Pigeon breastmilk storage bag, Pigeon honeycomb breast pads and so on. All well designed and quality products for babies and mommies!

The Pigeon Foaming Cleanser is using 100% food grade ingredients that safe to wash nursing bottles, teats, baby accessories, fruits and vegetables. 

Easy and convenient for mommies to clean up fruits and vegetables and prepare puree for babies.

After that, we are having a Japanese lunch treats with yummy udon, onigiri and sweet purple potato dessert for mommies! Mouse mommy likes the texture and original taste of sweet potato. Yummy!

Totoro is one of my favourite cartoon characters too. Do you know that this closed glass terrarium only required to watering once a month? Haha! Just nice for busy scheduled mom.
