Milo, DepEd underscore importance of physical health

MILO Philippines and the Department of Education (DepEd) continue with their longtime collaboration with a program highlighting the importance of physical health among students and the youth, more so now in the time of the pandemic.

Dubbed “Milo Champion Habit,” the program, which was launched last December, provides students in the elementary level an exercise program to follow online.

At the online Philippine Sportswriters Association Forum on Tuesday, officials of Milo and DepEd said that while the ongoing pandemic has presented challenges in pushing physical activities, efforts still have to be made on that front to make the development of the youth well-rounded.

And they are hoping that the Milo Champion Habit provides a platform for that.

“The program focuses on developing speed, agility, strength and power,” said Milo Sports executive Luigi Pumaren of the program, which has national athletes Alyssa Valdez (volleyball) and Japoy Lizardo (taekwondo) part of the campaign.

For Joel Erestain, director in the DepEd Secretariat, their program with Milo got added significance as the country continues to work its way through the coronavirus pandemic.

“The best way to fight back (against the virus) is by being healthy and staying healthy. We want to instill the habit of daily exercise among our youth,” said the DepEd official, who attended the forum on behalf of Education Undersecretary Tonisito Umali.

A six-minute exercise video featuring Ms. Valdez and Mr. Lizardo is currently available on Milo’s YouTube Channel for students to follow.

“It’s an exercise that can turn into a habit,” said Ms. Valdez. — Michael Angelo S. Murillo
