As a child I have consumed gallons of Milo growing up. Now my children specially my football playing Raffy always have a small sachet of Milo on hand to just pour on a hot mug of water or consume as is (pinapapak) when she feels the need for chocolate fix.
For over 50 years, leading beverage brand MILO has been warming the hearts and tummies of children from generations of Filipino families. With every cup brimming with energy-giving nutrients and the classic Chocomaltee flavor that Filipinos love, MILO has become a familiar mainstay in the breakfast table as the favorite drink in the morning for kids and adults alike.
A cup of the rich, chocolate malt drink evokes nostalgia and wonderful childhood memories to those who grew up with the drink. Elena, a mother of a 10-year-old son and 7-year-old daughter, shares how MILO would always help her gain the energy she needed for sports and other activities since she was a child.
“My mom introduced MILO to me. When I was younger, my mom would prepare a hot cup of MILO for me during breakfast, or after school, before I do my homework. Drinking it would make me feel energized and invigorated,” says Elena. “Until now, a warm cup or a cold glass of MILO, full of its Chocomaltee flavor, makes me feel renewed, energized, and ready for the day’s challenges.”
MILO’s distinct Chocomaltee flavor from a combination of malted barley, milk powder, sugar and cocoa, coupled with the goodness of ACTIGEN-E, a unique combination of vitamins and minerals which help to optimize release of sustained energy from food, is what makes is what makes it special. Children love the goodness of the Chocomaltee taste from a glass of MILO that gives them the energy essential in an active lifestyle.
“Now that I’m a mom, I have passed on my love for MILO to my children. I prepare MILO for them in the morning, and after school. For variety, I also come up with new ways to include MILO in their nutritious, well-balanced meals,” says Elena. “As they grow up, I hope they can also pass on the Chocomaltee goodness of MILO to their own children.”
