Be Part of the Change, Break the Habit and #PledgeToDoubleCheck Products for your Family’s Sake

Our family, most importantly, our kids are the special treasures we have and with that, we only want what is best for them especially in terms of the food and drinks they consume. However, with the goal of making them happy with their favorite refreshments, desserts, and snacks, are you sure that they are nutritious for your little ones?


Beware, mommies, do not put your guard down, and don’t be complacent because it’s not enough that we buy products having popular names. There might be red flags that you don’t see in the usual products that you buy. Just because we see our kids are enjoying their usual snacks and drinks doesn’t mean that our job is done, because as important it is to give them what they want, it’s even more important to give them what they need. As wise moms, we should check what ingredients are in the snacks and drinks that we serve to our kids. Is there too much sugar? Too many artificial ingredients? Remember, giving what’s best to our children is not only about providing tasty snacks and beverages –but rather, about providing them with snacks and drinks that will nourish them and keep them healthy.

Guilty? It’s never too late to break the habit of buying whatever is pleasing to the eyes and what is popular because All Natural Seasons Juice by Dole has started the mommy movement #PledgeToDoubleCheck that advocates for smarter and wiser grocery shopping.


This movement is a call to be more conscious about your grocery shopping habits and to inform and properly educate yourself about the ingredients of the products you are buying. The lesser ingredients they contain, the more natural they probably are, hence, a healthier and safer product for the family.

We may think that the current products that we are purchasing are already “healthy” but upon checking their ingredients lists, you might be shocked to find that they contain chemically-sounding, artificial additives and preservatives to add a more flavorful taste. Fair warning for all mommies that when there are too many ingredients (more than 10) and are a bit complicated or hard to understand, it could be a sign that the product contains a lot of artificial ingredients that are not advisable to be consumed in large amounts regularly so you might want to reconsider buying it.

Through pledging to check the label, you are committing towards being more aware on which brands to put your trust in and assessing which are true to their claim of being a healthy product. You will be shocked to discover that the products you have patronized and have made staple food items at home  contain ingredients that may result in health complications.

Well-known celebrity mommies like Jolina Magdangal, Neri Miranda, and Pokwang, together with some sought-after mommy bloggers such as Pehpot Pineda, and Peachy Adarne have spearheaded this movement of breaking the bad habit of not checking the label and starting to read and scrutinize the contents of the food and drinks that they buy.

It’s about time that you join us, not only by signing the pledge but taking this to greater heights by sharing this message to invite other mommies out there to take the pledge to double-check the ingredients to really know what’s in your juice.

Other mommies nationwide who have started taking in on the pledge admitted how double-checking the back label has made significant changes on them as a mom and how they were able to protect their
children from health risks.

“[As] a meticulous [and] curious mom, checking the back label helped me to verify the nutritional claims, compare brands, and choose which one offers the best buy for my family,” said Mommy Erlyne Penaroyo from Makati City.

“Double checking the back label of [the] products I shop from the groceries made me a more cautious and practical mom I am. It ensures my family’s safety most especially in these times of pandemic. Dole’s All Natural Seasons #PledgeToDoubleCheck made me realize to double-check all the things before purchasing and consuming,” according to Mommy Dyanna Cañas from Biñan City.

These mommies have proven that familiarizing yourself with the ingredients and nutrition content of the products you consume is an important factor that should be normalized and graciously followed.

“I always double-check the back label of each item I [buy] especially for my kids because I always want to make it sure na healthy ang lagi kong binibili at binibigay sa kanila at may natural ingredients na makakatulong sa health nila. I am very conscious mom lalo na sa mga binibigay ko sa aking family, kaya super important sakin na i-double check lagi ang back label,” Mommy Kimberly Fajilan from Batangas City added.

“It’s good to be aware if a certain food is high in sugar, carbs or in sodium. [and] also for the calorie content and ingredients, sometimes ‘pag puro preservatives malalaman mo agad kasi hindi familiar ang
ingredients,” said Mommy Gec Cajucom from Parañaque City.


Join this movement now and be part of the change! Post a photo of yourself holding and reading the back label of any food or beverage product and tell us what you discovered when you double-checked.

Don’t forget to use the hashtag #PledgeToDoubleCheck and tag @allnaturalseasons so you can
influence other mommies, and little by little, we can all take the next steps towards creating a healthier
lifestyle for us and our children.


  1. #Pledgetodoublecheck agree mommy ito po Ang pinaka importante sa lahat na kahit anong bilhin natin basta pagkain double check po sa label Kung nutritious ba o hindi.For tha sake sa health ng ating pamilya.Lalo na sa mga bata,kjng masustansya ba ito o safe kainin o inumin.Mahalagang reminder po ito na dapat alamin at suriin mona Ang isang produkto bago bilhin at kainin.

  2. Yes po, checking the back label of the foods or drink is a must. Dapat talaga maging wise tayo sa mga binibagay natin sa mga kids lalo na when it comes sa mga pagkain at drinks para ma-ensure natin yung kanilang health. I'll try this healthy drink, and magugustuhan din ito ng pamangkin ko.

  6. This is one of the lesson na natutunan ko kay mama kapag namimili kami. Double checking the back label of the products as well as the expiration date para sure ang safety ng buong pamilya especially kids. I will share this message to invite other people out there to always check and really know what is inside the products we are going to buy.

  7. Im super guilty on the part that when I saw that my kid is happy about a certain food or drink, I forgot to see if is it really or not. This serves as a wake up call for me although di naman talaga ako mahilig bumili nga mga foods or drinks pero minsan kasi din may mga nagbibigay para sa daughter ko at gaya nga ng sabi ko i dont mind a lot about the content of the products. Thanks for this momsh!


    Hindi lamang po sa mga pagkain maging sa mga bagay din tulad ng skin care products. Sabi ng Nanay ko, the lesser the ingredients the more na mas natural, pero oag sobrang dami na ng ingredients, maging alerto ka na. May mga bagay na akala nating sikat at patok sa lahat pero yun naman pala ikakapahamak ng lahat. Salamat Mommy sa pagbabahagi. Maging aral nawa ito sa lahat.

    Best regards,
    @naynaynilucas ♥️
