Richard Yap—actor, entrepreneur, father and husband—wears many hats, and in order to sustain him with his different roles, a healthy diet, regular exercise and drinking milk are apparently part of his routine.
“When I was a kid, I drank milk every day, once during breakfast and once before bedtime. I give credit to my parents for instilling my milk-drinking habit, which I apply until today. Milk equips me with essential nutrients to help sustain my busy schedule,” said Yap, who has just signed with powdered milk brand Birch Tree as its official endorser.
According to the TV star, he had no second thoughts accepting this particular offer because he has been drinking the brand since he was a child.
“It was the only milk that I liked,” he confessed laughing. A father of two, he went on to enumerate the health benefits of drinking milk including increased bone strength, smoother skin, stronger immune system, prevention of illnesses such as hypertension, obesity and osteoporosis.
“I encourage all parents to start your kids young with milk drinking, just as New Birch Tree Fortified has partnered with the Department of Education and Marylindbert International in the advocacy ‘Me and My Milk,’ which encourages children to drink milk at home and even in school,” Richard related.
Initially, the advocacy will be brought to the following regions: National Capital Region (NCR), Central Luzon (Region 3), Calabarzon (Region 4A), and Ilocos Region (Region 1).
