To mark Nutrition Month, SM Supermalls partnered with Mesa ni Misis for a special SuperMoms Meetup at the SM Megamall Event Atrium on July 22, Saturday.
The event gathered SuperMoms for a grand super momma convention, which also marked the launch of Juana’s Table, the newest recipe book by Mesa ni Misis’ Juana Manahan Yupangco.
“We SuperMoms hold the power to shape the future of our children’s health. By embracing a plant-based diet and introducing it to our families, we can ensure that our little ones grow up strong, vibrant, and armed with the necessary tools to lead a healthy and fulfilled life.” said Grace Magno, SM Supermalls Vice President for Corporate Marketing.
SM Supermalls and Mesa ni Misis, through the recipe book, aim to educate moms on the importance of healthy and sustainable eating. Written by Yupangco herself, who is a food security champion and advocate for local produce and farmers, the book is filled with healthy and affordable meal options that moms can easily create in their kitchen using the freshest produce found at the SM Sunday Market.
During the event, participants were treated to a cooking demo by Yupangco, who was then joined by celebrities and certified SuperMoms, Dimples Romana and Patti Grandidge Herrera who whipped up a veggie gimbap using fresh, local ingredients. They showcased how easily one can create a delicious and healthy meal for the whole family using one of the many recipes found in the book. Moms also got the chance to discover how to practice sustainability in the household through cooking.
The meetup featured on-ground activities for moms such as the SuperMoms Club Photo wall and a raffle draw.
Started in 2018, SM Supermalls’ SuperMoms Club is the Philippines’ largest mommy community on Facebook. Its on-ground event, the SuperMoms Meetup, has become an avenue to further build a stronger community of inspiring women and super mommas who uplift, support, and encourage each other.
The healthiest SuperMoms Club meetup in the metro was supported by SM Markets, SM Store, Fully Booked, Viu, NutriAsia, UnMeat, Téviant, Skin Poem, Designer Blooms, and Blims Furniture.
