Building our kids’ health through nutrition is crucial as they go back to school.
Preparing vegetable meals at home is a great way to keep children strong and healthy. This is especially important as the flu season is also upon us. Vegetables are good sources of potassium, dietary fiber, folate, vitamin A, and vitamin C, and many others.
Aside from its health benefits, with rising prices of pork and chicken, vegetables are also budget friendly. As homemakers face the day-to-day challenge of budgeting while striving to prepare nutritious and delicious dishes, these easy-to-prepare and veggie-licious recipes come in handy.
“In our own way, we aim to provide solutions and equip homemakers with knowledge on preparing affordable, nutritious and delicious meals for the family by sharing thoughtful recipes that take health and budget into consideration,” shares Ajinomoto Philippines Corporation (APC Group) General Manager Corporate Planning and Public Relations Roann Co.
