Couch to Court: MILO Energizes Kids at Active Pilipinas Launch

After years of restrictions and limitations, kids nationwide will now have access to MILO® sports programs to jumpstart their Champion journeys!

For 59 years, MILO® Philippines has been nourishing Filipino kids with energy-giving nutrients and the well-loved chocomaltee taste that help them live an active lifestyle.

With sports-driven active lifestyles, kids not only reap physical benefits but take lifelong learnings and skills too. They take home new values such as perseverance, discipline, and grit which sets them up for success in all aspects of life.

However, as the country faced pandemic-related restrictions in the past few years, this limited the opportunities for physical activity. Ultimately, this left kids at home, glued to their couches.

As steps turned into screen time and physical activity moved online, research showed that 84% of Filipino adolescents are insufficiently activedoing less than 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity per day.

Because MILO® believes in the power of sports and an active lifestyle, the brand challenged Filipino kids from couch to court with the launch of MILO® Active Pilipinas.

All year long, kids will have access to MILO® five different sports programs to help them unlock the champion within.

Now in its 38th year, the annual MILO Sports Clinics will continue to teach kids the basics of sports like basketball, taekwondo, swimming, and tennis, among others, while instilling discipline, confidence, and teamwork.

MILO® Champ Camp

Co-created with the Department of Education (DepEd), the MILO Champ Camp is a nationwide school tour that teaches students the basics of sports without disrupting their classes, since parents also play a role as we teach them proper nutrition.

This is one of the widespread efforts to help improve the physical literacy of kids because we believe that active kids are better learners.
