Spending quality time with the family need not be done only after office or business hours or during weekends. “Quality” means special and when it comes to time, we don’t want to give our families the “left-overs” of our attention. Studies say that in countries were divorce is high, one of the main reasons why families crumble is due to lack of time to communicate. During weekdays most specially, all of us are being caught up with the tasks that we need do, right from the minute we opened our eyes. Minsan, we even forget to pray after we wake up. That’s how busy most of us are.
But breakfast time can be the easiest time of the day when everyone can catch up with each other. After everyone have showered and get dressed up for work or for school, a breakfast feast in front of the table will encourage all the members of the family to settle down and fill in their tummies. Mekeni longganisa, and bacon are just the perfect food to prepare. Because Mekeni’s food products are of the highest standards, the family will enjoy fresh and quality kind of food they won’t get in fast food restaurants. “Iba ang lutong bahay” as we always say.
Some of us may need to do some adjustments to be able to spend time to enjoy breakfast. We are always in a hurry that a bite or two will be enough. But researches have shown that hasty eating may not have good effects to our bodies aside from the fact that we aren’t even able to relish the taste of the food which comes in our mouth.
That’s why Mekeni, through its Breakfestival campaign, promotes the importance of breakfast and enjoying the company of the family members while we eat. When we put priority on the time we spend with each other while sustaining our bodies for the jobs we need to do for the rest of the day, that’s what we call multitasking working at its best. Breakfast will also be the perfect time to know things which really matter, like how our kids did at school the day before, or maybe if the husband wishes to spend time with mommy at the end of the day, or when the older kids need to talk to mom and dad. It’s so much easier to feel positive for the rest of the day when you have a full stomach and a full heart at the beginning of the day.
We are very thankful to Mekeni and its Breakfestival campaign for nurturing families with foods that are delicious, energy-giving and promoting the importance of spending quality time with each other. Wherever we may go, food and family should always come first.
