Nestlé and KidZania Manila officially opened the doors to the MILO Stadium. The Milo stadium in KidZania is a state-of-the-art, kid-sized sports arena designed for 7-14 year old kids to get started on the path to an active and healthy lifestyle through physical activity and proper nutrition. When my son knew that we were invited to the Milo stadium launch, he was so excited.
KidZania Manila is the ultimate role-playing environment where kids get to live out their big dreams in a fun, learning experience. I’ve blogged about the 10 big things kids can do at KidZania Manila. How about in the Milo Stadium? What kids can do inside it? 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. I like how they encourage kids to know that proper nutrition.
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.
During the Milo Stadium launch in KidZania Manila, Jacques Reber, Chairman and CEO of Nestlé Philippines, Inc. has said inspiring words about Milo.
“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,”.
Moreover, 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.”
Before the Basketball and Cheer-leading demo begins, the kidZanians gathered together with the Nestlé Philippines executive team and with the KidZania minsitry of industry as they are welcome to the opening of the Milo Stadium.
The sportscaster and television host, Patricia Bermudez-Hizon, gracefully hosted the Milo Stadium launch.
My son joined the basketball team. They do stretching, exercise, and try out first before they actually started the game.
Kiefer Ravena shared his basketball moves on the court that truly helped kidZanians for their winning energy.
While the boys are preparing for the basketball game, Gretchen Ho, joined the cheer-leading demo.
My son has a wonderful, fun-filled day learning some basketball moves from the Milo athlete, Kiefer Ravena. We also spotted Mr. Vince Hizon, the husband of Ms. Patricia, who also supported Milo.
MILO also used this opportunity to recognize the important role Moms play in the lifestyle choices of their kids. Since day one, Moms have been the consistent figure in every kid’s life, inspiring them to make the best choices to be good-natured, respectful, disciplined, and responsible individuals.
“Now, especially during their formative years, Moms have an important role to play in helping their kids live an active and healthy lifestyle. By bringing them to the MILO Stadium, you have already taken that first step and whether by example or by just being the support they need, we encourage Moms to continue being active in guiding, teaching and inspiring their kids to be a Champion every day,” added Reber.
Being a champion has never been easy, let alone raising one. That is why MILO has introduced its new formula with Activ-Go designed to energize both the body and mind to help kids reach their full potential both physically and mentally.
At the end of the basketball game, the white and green team are tie. Each player were given a Milo basketball with Kiefer Ravena’s signature on it. My son is so happy to receive this basketball. It is remarkable!
