Fun Day with Vitacubes

M has a huge sweet tooth. She asks for something sweet (candy or chocolate) after meals. We motivate her to finish what's on her plate by making a piece of candy her reward. Sometimes, I worry about her eating too much so we have a strict rule: 1 candy per day. Lucky us, we have an obedient kid.

When she started going to school, I tried my best to make her snack box look interesting by making bento boxes for her.  I would use candies to add color but again, limit the number of candies I put in for fear of giving her too much sugar.



Last sunday, (Aug 2, 2015) we were invited to a party in Fun Ranch. We were told to wear purple or white.

Purple for McKenzie, White for Me
I managed to arrange a date for Dad so we ate lunch at Tiendesitas then we went on our separate dates (Mommy and M; Ninong And Daddy).

Other members of Mommy Bloggers Philippines were already there when we arrived. I brought M to the Playdium and went back to the party room to catch up on fellow Mommy Bloggers.
It was a fun, fun party with games, great food, magic show and a photo booth (M's favorite).
I won a prize during the raffle!
So what was the party about?
Rebisco launched Vitacubes.
Vitacubes are cube shaped jelly candies that comes in different flavors: strawberry, apple, grape, orange and mango. It is a delicious candy that is fortified with essential vitamins and minerals that are essential for the growth of kids.
