Nestlé Philippines has officially opened the MILO Stadium, its own state-of-the-art, kid-sized sports arena located inside KidZania Manila. Designed for 7-14 year olds, the MILO Stadium aims to get kids started on the path to living an active and healthy lifestyle, through physical activity and proper nutrition.
KidZania Manila is the ultimate role-playing environment where kids get to live out their big dreams in a fun, learning experience. Inside the MILO Stadium, kids play the role of an athlete, specializing in either Basketball, Football, Volleyball or Cheerleading. Each sport will train them in a series of drills and take them through a live game simulation that promotes the value of teamwork, among others.
Apart from the physical benefits of sports, the KidZania instructors, called Zupervisors, will also teach kids the importance of proper nutrition, which is essential for any athlete to live an active and healthy lifestyle.
Another activity of choice for the kids is to learn the MILO Champ Moves dance, a three-minute exercise emulating sports movements, designed to energize their body and mind for the day ahead.
“For over 50 years, MILO has continued to build champions in sports and in life. The opening of our MILO Stadium marks another important chapter in our story as we continue to nourish kids with the winning energy to live an active and healthy lifestyle, and discover the Champion in them,” said Jacques Reber, Chairman and CEO of Nestlé Philippines, Inc.
Maricel Pangilinan Arenas, State Governor of KidZania Manila, shared: “We are very proud of our partnership with Nestlé in creating the MILO Stadium. By combining education with entertainment, we hope to inspire kids to learn values and lessons that will lead them to be outstanding KidZania citizens. Teamwork, discipline and hard work are just some of the values they will walk away with when they leave the MILO Stadium.”
