In continuation of its yearly support to mothers across the country, Three Crowns milk brand recently crowned three mothers at the grand finale of its Mum of
The Year competition, which held in Lagos.

The night saw three lucky mothers out of the 10, who participated carter away all-expenses-paid trip to Dubai, United Arab Emirates and a year’s supply of Three Crowns milk.

The competition, which was in its fourth year, rewarded three mothers for the first time to celebrate the company’s 30 years of existence in Nigeria.

The panel of judges, made up of Nollywood stars, Fathia Balogun, Bellinda Effah, and popular Fitness Coach, Bunmi George (Shreddergang), declared Mrs. Jennifer Otu, Mrs. Pauline Pambolo Daniel and Adaobi Okonkwo the winners respectively, having scored overall highest marks combined across the three stages of the competition – Fitness, Smartness, Fun Tests , and popular votes.

Other contestants also smiled home with consolation prizes; the fourth and fifth place winners were each rewarded with N1m worth of kitchen makeover; the sixth and seventh place winners got N500,000 worth of kitchen makeover each, while each of the eighth, ninth and 10th winners received N300,000 worth of kitchen makeover to be redeemed at any store of their choice.

Speaking at the event, Senior Brand Manager of Three Crowns Milk, Omolara Banjoko, said the brand’s support for mothers was hinged on the fact that mothers play an important role in shaping the society at large.

She added that their choice to eat right and keep fit is very important in reducing the risk of Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs), including cardiovascular diseases for the family and society.

“Three Crowns supports families by providing high quality nutrition for mothers and by extension, their families.

She said, “One of the key things that we have identified is that the foundation of any family is the mother and with them being the foundation, they need to stay fit and healthy which is what Three Crowns truly believes in.

We strongly believe that if the pillar of the house, being the mother, is taken care of, the whole family is strong.”

Mrs. Out, who emerged overall winner, expressed appreciation to FrieslandCampina WAMCO for the remarkable opportunity to participate and win the contest.

She noted that the event had transformed her in many ways as she now sees the need to keep fit and adopt health and wellness routine as a lifestyle. 

She said, “This journey started several months ago when my daughter told me about the competition.

I bought a pack for myself and for some of my friends and asked them to vote for me.

I was very committed to the process and spent time trying to persuade family and friends to vote.

I have learnt a lot in the course of this journey, but the most important lesson I have learnt is how to stay healthy and fit.”
