Amino Fres-C Instant Drink Mix

It was a blessing that we received our stash of Amino Fres-C at a time when we need it the most. It was when my son and I were both down with the flu. And you know how it is with flu. Fever, lack of appetite, dryness of the mouth, fatigue and a host of other symptoms that made us lie in bed all day. It was a good thing that my husband was spared from the virus. He took care of us until we were both healthy and well. When we were still sick, my husband took the new instant drink mixes that  Ajinomoto sent to us and prepared a pitcher of juice for a couple of days just to make sure that our son and I will stay hydrated and that we get lots of Vitamin C in order for us to recover swiftly from flu. We started with the Mango flavor and I loved that it’s way better than the other brands of the same flavor. The Mango flavor of Amino Fres-C is not too sweet and it smells of fresh mangoes, too. I actually finished two glasses of it! I had the opposite experience with other mango flavored instant juice drinks. They are too sweet that I would only have a few sips or I would end up with a sore throat.

We had the Pineapple flavor the next day. It tastes just right and it smells of real pineapples, too. It has become my favorite! Our little boy loved it too that he asked for another serving after his first 🙂

Yesterday, I was having an itchy throat so my good husband prepared a pitcher of the Orange flavor of Amino Fres-C. Today, I woke up and I feel better 🙂

Lessen Stress at School with the new “amino Fres-C”

School is a wonderful place to explore and learn new things but parents are well-aware that this place can also be a major source of stress for kids. A school day begins and ends with passing through bumpy roads and enduring slow-moving traffic. Kindergarteners are not excused from pushing trolleys that carry heavy loads. Students have to juggle various seat works, assignments, recitations and quizzes for 8-9 subjects. In a nutshell, going to school is eternally beneficial but it is hard work!

Parents can instill the value of diligence and patience to lessen the hurdles kids face at school. Feed them with knowledge that can widen their understanding and sharpen their minds. Be involved in their school life. Assist in checking if assignments and projects are done correctly and completely and be on guard for any emotional or physical traumas they might be experiencing within and outside school premises. Extracurricular activities can also help build self-esteem and develop healthy social life for most school children as they learn to interact with other people.

Being sick or sickly is a big burden to students as they need the strength and energy to keep up with the daily demands of school. Exercise and good diet are essential in maintaining physical well-being. Parents must take time to engage their kids in fun physical activities and prepare delicious and healthy meals.

Responsible parents naturally go for safe and quality ingredients, but to make meals more enjoyable and nourishing for school children, they need to introduce variety of food ingredients and expand cooking methods from only frying to also sautéing, steaming, blanching and boiling. If frying is unavoidable, it is recommended to observe proper frying temperature (365-375’F) to decrease oil absorption. Test by dropping a small piece of food into the oil; the temperature is right if the piece of food rises above the oil within 3-5 seconds.

The new “amino Fres-C” Instant Juice Drink Mix is a great addition to kids’ baon. This is the only powdered juice drink that is packed with Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA) with Glutamine and Arginine.
