As promised, our Quaker Supermoms are sharing each step they take to move closer to achieving the Quaker goals they have set for their families and for themselves. On their road to victory, Quaker Oats has been helping them by providing them the energy they need to push even harder every day.
Quaker Goal: To swim, bike, and run more with my kids and train as a family.
The Bull Runner Jr., a.k.a. Jaymie’s 12-year old son Anton, has been able to compete in his first triathlon this month! Every athlete gets nervous once in a while and when Anton expressed his worries, Quakermom Jaymie assured him, “You really just have to train hard, overcome your fear, and enjoy the entire experience.”
Meanwhile, Nia (Li’l Miss TBR), who’s turning nine this month, has started with her swimming lessons. Good thing Jaymie has been (secretly) serving them more wholesome grains, veggies, and fruits to give her kids the energy they need. She also always reminds them that all of their activities should be done for fun.
Quaker Goal: To create a new, healthy living environment for my family.
The OC Mom In Manila and her family continue to drink only filtered water stored in stainless or glass bottles to avoid chemicals in plastics. Kris has made sure the fruits and veggies they eat does not contain pesticide residue at all by buying only those that are on the Clean 15 List. “We’re also buying a lot more organic veggies,” she adds. Her hubby also makes homemade cereal using Quaker Oats Rolled Oats for more energy-filled breakfasts for the family. Kris hasn’t quit cold turkey yet on the pizza and chips, but she’s on a good 80% healthy lifestyle, so far!
Quaker Goal: To help my kids live more active and involved lives, affecting others positively.
Janice and her kids came up with two-week goals to empower the kids and keep them on the right track. Coby, her eldest who’s always on his phone, has injected more feelings into his text messages to her. Zach, her second son, made a New Year’s resolution to do a good deed everyday and has taken the lead for his group in the Science Fair. Her bunso Reese is now reading Book 4 of her Julie B. Jones series, and Janice has taken up Velada dancing to stay active. “Together, we also did the Maring outreach project of MomShare with a smile,” she proudly adds.
