Be safe with Wilkins

Water is essential to everyone, more so to a growing child. It helps maintain the balance of body fluids, which in turn improves digestion, transportation of nutrients, and maintenance of body temperature. It also helps energize muscles and replaces fluids kids lose when sweating. This is why it’s very critical that moms use only clean and safe water for their little ones.

Last June 25, Wilkins gathered selected mommy bloggers and media friends to share why drinking water should be safe for babies. 

Guest speaker and renowned pediatrician Dr. Sally Gatchalian said that “Eighty percent of all illness in the developing world is water related. 

For instance, unsafe drinking water, combined with lack of sanitation and poor hygiene, risks your child to diarrheal diseases. That’s nearly 1.7 billion cases recorded globally every year, making it the leading cause of malnutrition among children under 5 years old.”

She also added that a significant proportion of diarrheal diseases can be easily prevented through safe drinking water. Wilkins Distilled Water, Mom’s Most Trusted Water Brand and prescribed by pediatricians, is a vital part of Mom’s Circle of Trust. Owned by The Coca-Cola Company, Wilkins follows an international quality control system and uses only state-of-the-art equipment in packing and sealing its products to ensure clean and safe quality water.

Arnel Cabungcal, ASEAN Quality, Environment & Safety Director of The Coca-Cola Company, says distillation involves boiling water until it becomes vapor before condensing it back into water. This ensures that what you get is 100% clean and pure water.

“But unlike other distilled water processes, Wilkins Distilled undergoes an extra purifying step called reverse osmosis. This takes Wilkins Distilled water to another level of safety and quality. Reverse osmosis dissolves inorganic solids, like salts, and removes impurities and contaminates from the water,” he adds.

Wilkins understands that safe drinking water is only one of the many challenges and uncertainties moms face in raising a child in today’s unsafe world.

“In this world where everyone claims to be trustworthy, moms may have a difficult time knowing who she can truly trust. That’s why Wilkins is providing mothers everywhere with trusted concern through expert information, relevant advice & tips, and real-life experiences, which they can learn and share through the Wilkins Circle of Trust,” says Criselle Pascual, Stills Category Group Brand Manager of Coca-Cola Philippines.

Keeping children hydrated is not a one-woman job. Moms would need a lot of hands for this task. Good thing they have a Circle of Trust – moms’ most trusted support group that ensures the safety and health of their little ones, even when mom is not around. That includes making sure that the kids are getting enough to drink. Moms get that assurance from grandparents, siblings, the best friend, yaya, pediatricians, OB/GYNS, teachers, and even trusted products.

Let your Circle of Trust grow along with your child’s future. Like the Wilkins Distilled Facebook Wilkins-Distilled-Drinking-Water TODAY!
