Goldilocks is at it again with Pinggang Pinoy, this time for educating customers about calorie content count. Filipinos love to eat and have elevated this experience to an expression of love, affection, and thoughtfulness. Proof of that is our tendency to say, “Kain tayo!” after greeting a friend, or asking “Kumain ka na ba?” as a way of asking how our friends are doing.
Unfortunately, there are instances when this love for eating leads to over indulgence and poor dietary decisions. Being informed about our food intake is one of the many ways we can take care of our health. But in this fast-paced world where we hardly have the time to cook, ordering food is a more viable option. This could cause us to find it more difficult to stick to a sensible diet.
To address this concern, responsible food establishments and institutions are working hand-in-hand to develop healthier meals that will help Filipinos get the proper nutrition they need, without stopping them from eating what they love. Goldilocks launched the Pinggang Pinoy Meals in 2015. The meals were created as part of an advocacy partnership with the Food and Nutrition Research Institute (FNRI). It aims to help provide the right amount of nutrients and calories needed by the average Filipino.
The country’s number one bakeshop has continued this initiative up to the present, and improved upon it with the addition of a Calorie Content count printed beside the menu of Pinggang Pinoy Meals. This will help ensure that consumers are aware of how much you they are consuming, and how close they are to the recommended 2000 calories per day.
The past year’s Pinggang Pinoy favorites Pinakbet and Daing na Bangus set, and the Monggo and Daing na Bangus set, are still available for Php130 and Php120 pesos, respectively. Joining the Pinggang Pinoy line is the all new Sauteed Veggies and Chicken BBQ set for only Php120. Each meal is served with steamed rice, gelatin, and bottled water.
