Choosing kindergarten is a fantastic big step and a huge adaptation for the whole family. Because I went through the process several times, I have 2 children who attend kindergarten for 2 and 3 years, respectively, I thought I would share with you the criteria that I took into account when I chose, what we determined to change a much too well-known kindergarten, but also what determines us to stay at the kindergarten where we are, although the cumulative budget is a nightmare.

  1. state or private kindergarten & # 8211 here everyone decides according to the budget. I am glad that we manage to take them to the private sector, because from what we have heard in the state, the big groups, the television and the holy salami are practiced, along with the much too sweet Barni.
  2. proximity & # 8211 to the house, respectively service, or to be somehow in the usual way of the parent. Here to see who takes and who picks up the child from kindergarten.
  3. parking & # 8211 it doesn't matter if you block the road or stay for 10 minutes looking for a parking space, because all parents leave and pick up their children at about the same time
  4. program & # 8211 short / long / extended, depending on how many hours you need the baby's supervision. We opted for a short program for the first few months, then went on to a long one. Child 2 started directly with a long program, from 1 year and 5 months and was very good. But having her brother in kindergarten, she was raised there, at celebrations and other events.
  5. how long of the year it is open & # 8211 for us it was a great advantage to have the kindergarten open all year round.
  6. accommodation & # 8211 some kindergartens offer the possibility to accompany the child at the beginning for a smooth passage, others say & # 8222 leave it to us that he cries a little and passes & # 8221. Everyone decides how their soul holds it. I couldn't have left them crying every day. I left her once and I cried all the way, until I found out that she calmed down after less than 3 minutes, in which she stayed in the educator's arms anyway. What we discovered was that the separation is gentle when their father takes them. They tell me at home, and he always leaves them alone in the gardens. The explanation seems to be this: if I leave them in school, they have a feeling of abandonment towards me, as an attachment person, compared to the situation when they leave me and I know that I am still there on my return, plus they have a notion of where I am and that I am not leaving forever.
  7. yard & # 8211 big, small, absent, facilities.
  8. program / teaching methods used, if it is an alternative system, like Montessori, for example, to see if the educators have specific training, because I met Montessori kindergartens where only the furniture was in tune with this current. We initially chose Montessori, which was a fake Montessori and went bankrupt, and now we are in a private, normal kindergarten with intensive English. Not because we didn't like other systems, but the proximity was more important, because I don't want to keep the children in the car for hours in kindergarten.
  9. structure of the day & # 8211 what is the balance between card completion and free play? If a child does not want to participate, what happens?
  10. food & # 8211 catering meals (from where) or cooked food inside (ingredient details) special snack details & # 8211 which can be fruits / vegetables / cakes. I noticed that state-owned snack gardens offer commercial sweets, for example. Do I get the second portion? How much does a portion mean? For example, I liked the fact that I found here the attitude of small portion and who wants more, than large portion, so that a child who eats everything from the plate to eat too much, or the food to end up in the trash, if one does not he eats it. See also an example of the menu, and detailed for example if it says & # 8222cereale & # 8221 (I found a super expensive and famous kindergarten that gave cereals Cheerios and chocapic because & # 8222this eats children & # 8221) & # 8211 plus what What happens if the child refuses the food? Specific questions related to possible allergies and intolerances, special menus. What if a child does not eat alone? What foods are allowed outside & # 8211 anniversaries, cakes?
  11. somn & # 8211 where and how do I sleep? What happens to those who refuse to sleep? When I started searching, I remember how outraged I was that I slept on the floor, in the same room where they play, and where I take my snacks. I discovered that it is a common practice and I realized that it would be super expensive to reserve a space only for sleep, so 2 hours a day, and that it is still an ok option.
  12. meal / sleep schedule.
  13. punishments/rewards / disciplinary & # 8211 I noticed that it applies quite generally, although they are not called that and are presented in another form. For me, taking the child out of the activity is still a punishment & # 8230 Because the approach of the kindergarten is not to catch the child by mistake & # 8221 I made a compromise here. Yes, I receive stickers in ballet and English, stamps in German, candy in swimming (this seems out of place and I signaled) & # 8230 but at the same time the teacher encircles on the sheet what the child solved CORRECTLY, not the mistakes, and At the same time, the educators sit with them in bed, caress them and tell them stories in their sleep.
  14. optional available, prices and details & # 8211 although I do not support the transformation of children into learning machines and their move from optional to optional, I find it very useful to have the option of a sport (swimming) that was not accessible to me as a parent and that here I am it costs less than if I paid individually. In addition, swimming does not take time from family time, and the kindergarten takes care of transport and all the logistics on the spot. Other useful options: exposure to foreign languages, but also technical options.
  15. communication with the parents, when and how? & # 8211 folders, assessments, meetings, hourly observations.
  16. parental involvement in kindergarten & # 8211 in our kindergarten there are classes held by parents for example, but also events organized parent-child, in addition to the usual celebrations. Linked celebrations, what is the general attitude if a child does not say poetry?
  17. Transport & # 8211 car details, seats and belts, how many children go / transport and how much it costs, the hours at which the cars run.
  18. preparation minimum a educators.
  19. knowledgeeducator group and even class attendance.
  20. children's ages from the group and & # 8222troop movements& # 8221 & # 8211 in our country, for example, the school year begins with 2-3 educators per group, and in the middle of the year the group splits into 2 depending on the level of development.
  21. toilets / potty / diapers: Here it seems important to me to know what support you rely on to get rid of diapers, what facilities there are in the bathroom, and how accessible they are to children. They should have small toilets and sinks. Another aspect would be the one related to coils, reducers, if each one is his own or sits in a pile and we hope for the best. How often are baby diapers changed? Where?
  22. hygiene in the bathroom & # 8211 towels, toothbrushes & # 8211 in our kindergarten for example they gave up brushing their teeth at lunch because they could not control them from exchanging brushes & # 8230.
  23. caring & # 8211 for me it was important to know that someone else was taking care of the children's needs, so that the teacher would not leave the room with everyone peeing.
  24. nurse, doctor & # 8211 exist? permanent? how to sort children? what are the signs that send them home? is it possible to leave them in the classroom even with treatment? For us, this was a bonus point, because we know that if we can't stay with them once at home and they are sick (not in bed), we can take them, there is a special room for that, they sit and play with the nurse.
  25. VENT & # 8211 Are children under air conditioning all day? mosquito nets on the windows? How do the windows open & # 8211 related to the risk of falling from the floor?
  26. how much I get out outside?
  27. attitude towards dirt?
  28. other costs & # 8211 trips, celebrations?
  29. technology used in the classroom, interactive whiteboard, tv, laptop & # 8211 what and how much? Here I recommend you to check the size of the classroom, compared to the technology (how close are they to a large TV or an interactive whiteboard as the wall?)
  30. the general atmosphere in kindergarten?

That being said, I recommend that you make your own list of questions, related to your personal needs and desires, and go with it to all the kindergartens you are targeting and write down answers so that you can compare them later.

Yes, there was no perfect kindergarten! Stop looking for her!

Prioritize and think about what you can't get over and choose based on that, you can compensate the rest.

That being said, we are in 3rd grade.

The first was chosen because it was Montessori, close to us and reasonable in price, but went bankrupt in 6 months, being in fact a fake Montessori and in an area where parents did not appreciate alternative systems.

The second kindergarten was the & # 8222praised apple & # 8221 where we went with the bag to pick up quiet children, and we actually picked up stressed children peeing on them, children screaming in the car, children not sleeping at noon, conflicts with the leadership, to which they never had solutions, and even insults, and after 2 months not even an information about what they did there & # 8230 After 2 months, we drew the winning lottery where we are and now satisfied, where we met warm people , imperfect, but always eager to find solutions.

Snow Maiden Cake & # 8211 with egg white top, vanilla cream and chocolate

I set out to test several cake recipes known and loved by Romanians this year. I know this will seriously damage my figure but I & # 8230 take the risk.

I get too excited when I see on the Facebook groups where I activate how these desserts are so praised that I can't resist not tasting the cakes that are acclaimed as amazing.

So this new project comes somehow, it blends perfectly with the other project that I started a few years ago and through which I set out to bring back to life the old recipes from my aunt's cookbook.

Do you remember, I hope, the cake? "Snow White"(Recipe here) or cake"TV”(Recipe here) to take just 2 examples of old recipes tested and then published in their original version.

the place where we exchange recipes and tips in the kitchen

In the meantime, I thought that these old recipes require a little "ventilation", meaning they are also worth presenting in another, more modern version. So I started testing new recipes based on old recipes. An example would be the recipe reinterpreted by Snow White cake & # 8211 see here & # 8211 posted last week on the blog.

Well, today it will be about another cake loved by Romanians and whose recipe I discovered on Facebook culinary groups, on the occasion of the winter holidays when all Romanians compete to make as many cakes as possible. Is about the Snow Maiden cake. In the meantime, I found out that we should thank Amalia for this recipe she found in her mother's old recipe book.

I liked the concept of this cake, although I didn't fully understand its name. Snow Queen. But there are many cakes with strange and difficult to understand names. An additional misunderstanding of the name no longer matters especially when the end result is incredibly tasty.

And, ohooo, how tasty this cake can be! My son, who is very capricious and grumpy even when it comes to desserts was super, mega delighted by the Snow Maiden cake.

Follow me on Instagram (click here) or Facebook page (click here)

Well, how could it not be when we are talking about a white countertop, a vanilla cream and a chocolate one, separated by a row of biscuits between them and some cream on top. Because that's what the recipe is about Snow Maiden cake.

Nestle will close the factory in Timisoara until the end of May

The management informed the employees about the intention to close the factory and started discussions with the union and the employees to find the most suitable solution for the 388 people concerned.

& # 8220Closing the production unit in Timișoara is an extremely difficult decision, taken after thorough analysis and implementation of all alternatives. Locally, Nestlé operates in a market that is undergoing a period of rapid change, characterized by new patterns of consumption and labor shortages, in a competitive environment. We analyze all the options to provide the necessary support to our colleagues. Our priority is to mitigate this change in relation to our employees. ” said Leszek Wacirz, Nestlé Romania Country Manager.

The factory in Timișoara was acquired by Nestlé in 2000 and has an annual production of over 10,000 tons of sweets and coffee. Manufacturing of Nestlé products will continue in other locations. The brands produced in Timişoara will not disappear from the market, the production will be moved to Hungary.

Nestlé Romania's portfolio includes breakfast cereals and cereal bars, hot drinks, Nestlé Professional division, sweets, ice cream, culinary products, baby products and animal feed. Brands in the company's portfolio include Joe, Nescafé, Maggi and Purina.

"We have initiated an extensive consultation process with employees and the union to identify the best solutions we can support our people during this period. We explore all possible ways, from assistance in finding new jobs or acquiring the necessary skills in the re-employment process to organizing job fairs inside the factory. The employees who will be laid off will benefit from compensatory salaries depending on their seniority in the company. & # 8221, said Jackie Avery, Nestlé Romania Human Resources Director.

Nestlé entered the Romanian market in 1995 and became one of the most important players on the food and beverage market, most of the brands being leaders in the category. Nestlé Romania's portfolio includes a wide range of products from various categories, to meet consumer demand: drinks (NESCAFÉ, Nesquik), sweets (JOE, Nesquik, Kit Kat, Lion, After Eight, Smarties), culinary products (Maggi), food for children (Nestlé Infant Nutrition), Nestlé Professional & # 8211 out of home solutions division, breakfast bars and cereals (Nestlé Fitness, Musli, Nesquik, Chocapic, etc.) and animal feed (Purina).

Nespresso, a world-renowned name in the field of luxury coffee in the form of capsules, is officially present in Romania as a luxury division of the Nestlé Group, since 2014.

  • Eclaire dough

  • 100 ml oil
  • a little salt
  • 100 g flour
  • 3 eggs husband
  • Vanilla cream
  • 4 yolks
  • 150 g sugar
  • 50 g flour
  • 500 ml of milk
  • 4 sheets of gelatin (8 g)

  • 250 ml for whipped cream
  • a tablespoon of powdered sugar
  • 2-3 drops of lemon juice
  • decoration
  • 50 ml whipped cream
  • 50 g household chocolate (50% cocoa)

First we will prepare the eclair dough. In a saucepan, on the fire, put water, oil and a little salt. When it starts to boil, turn it on low heat, add all the flour and mix vigorously so that it does not form lumps. 4 minutes, when a thin film of dough has formed on the bottom of the bowl (a sign that the dough has dried enough), turn off the heat and transfer the composition to a bowl to cool.

When it has cooled, add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each one. Do not add the next egg until the previous one has been incorporated perfectly.

Transfer the obtained dough to a tray (25 & # 21532 cm), greased with a little oil. Spread it as evenly as possible with a spatula or even with your hands greased with oil, trying to lift it at least 2-3 cm on the edges tavii.

Bake in the preheated oven at 200 ° C for the first 15 minutes, then reduce to 180 ° C and leave it for another 20 minutes, until it browns nicely.

*It will grow irregularly and look weird, but don't worry because it has to be that way.

Then remove the top on a grill to cool.

While the countertop cools, prepare the cream.

First mix the whipped cream and put the gelatin to hydrate in plenty of cold water.

Then we put the milk on the fire together with the vanilla. I put directly in the cream half a teaspoon of dried and ground peas.

In a saucepan mix very well the yolks with the sugar and salt powder until the composition doubles and lightens in color. Incorporate the flour, then pour the warm milk with vanilla, stirring constantly.

Put the pot on the fire and simmer, from the moment it boils, for 5 minutes, until it thickens, stirring constantly so that it doesn't stick to the bottom.

Pour the cream into a large bowl, let it cool and then incorporate the gelatin.

*The cream does not have to be hot because the properties of the gelatin are lost.

When it has cooled, gently incorporate the whipped cream.

You can also prepare the chocolate icing. Heat the whipping cream until it reaches the boiling point, then add the chocolate, leave for 1-2 minutes and mix until it is homogeneous.

Mix the whipped cream and add two or three drops of lemon juice for more firmness and sweeten it with powdered sugar.

Now you can assemble the cake.

Place the top in the tray, spread the vanilla cream evenly, then whipped cream and decorate with cooled icing.

Put the cake cold for a few hours or even overnight and then you can cut it into the desired shape. Enjoy!

Wacirz, CEO of Nestlé Romania: Locally, we estimate a 50% increase in online shopping for food

At the end of April, Nestlé publicly announced the financial results recorded at group level in the first quarter of 2020, a good opportunity to find out from Leszek Wacirz, Nestlé Romania Country Manager, what are the priorities on the local market and where it is heading. company resources, from now on.

Mr Leszek Wacirz, how do you comment on the financial results for the first quarter of the year that Nestlé has achieved globally? What was the financial impact of the pandemic on Nestlé's business in Romania?
In the first quarter of the year we recorded an organic increase in most markets, but with a decrease in total sales of 6.2%, to CHF 20.8 billion, compared to CHF 22.2 billion in the same period last year.

The impact of COVID-19 varied significantly depending on the geographical area, the product category and the sales channel, being strongly influenced by the time of the pandemic, the level of local restrictions and changes in consumer behavior.

The financial impact of the pandemic remains difficult to quantify and will depend on the duration and economic consequences of this crisis.

For now, our priority remains to protect the health of employees, supply or distribution chain partners and, of course, the people in the affected communities we belong to.

At the same time, we want our products to continue to be available to consumers around the world, so we are closely monitoring the situation globally. We are ready to respond to potential supply chain challenges, as well as the ever-changing demands of consumers.

At the local level, the financial information for the first quarter of 2020 will be available in the next period, and then we will have a first vision on the impact of the coronavirus pandemic for Nestlé Romania.

How has coffee consumption changed during the pandemic? Will we see changes in coffee consumption in the second half of the year?
The impact on the coffee segment varied depending on the type of product and the sales channel. In the OOH (Out of home) division, there was a double-digit decrease, corresponding to the closure of HORECA and the significant impact on consumption outside the home. In response to this situation, a global fund of CHF 500 million was allocated to support the OOH segment in Romania, which materialized in support measures granted to our business partners in this field amounting to almost 3 million lei. .

We expect a gradual recovery in this sector, as restrictive measures are lifted at national level.

The temporary closure of Nespresso boutiques was, once again, a point of impact, the acquisition partially moving to e-commerce, an evolution that we could see in the case of Nescafe Dolce Gusto, in the category of coffee capsules.

Being an extremely dynamic period on the various sales channels - OOH, retail and e-commerce, it is too early to draw a conclusion for the rest of the year, at category level.

What other consumption trends have you noticed in Romania, since the beginning of the state of emergency?
We noticed, first of all, an increase in consumer storage behavior, with a focus on basic foodstuffs, especially for products that come in multipack packaging, this increase being, most likely, temporary.

At the same time, at least in the food sector, a new trend is visible, that of planned purchases, to the detriment of impulsive purchases, and it is possible to see this behavior in the future. I think that in the near future, consumers' attention will shift to culinary treats, such as sweets, to improve their mood after the isolation period.

What is the impact of increasing online shopping on the business you run?
In recent months, the largest increase in sales was recorded in the e-commerce segment. Locally, we estimate a 50% increase in online shopping for food.

However, some of the Romanian buyers prefer the familiar and the possibility of social interaction offered by the classic retail, where we noticed an increase of consumption by 20%, coming from the temporary storage behavior. Globally, sales generated by e-commerce channels increased by 29.4%, exceeding, for the first time, 10% of the group's total sales.

Have Romanians maintained their interest in the Food, Beverages, PetCare categories in which you operate?
At the group level, the Food & Beverages categories recorded a double-digit organic growth, partially supported by the behavior of food storage consumers. Most consumers turned their attention to basic consumer products, especially for "basic food" products.

In the PetCare sector, we have seen a growing demand for Purina ONE premium products as well as Purina ProPlan therapeutic animal nutrition products, products developed by our team of specialists to maintain the health of pets throughout their lives. This development is normal for this period, the food sector being, in its entirety & # 8211, taking into account the production of pet food -, essential during this period.

In the partnership with retail networks, what catches your attention the most during this period?
During this period we seek to minimize, as much as possible, disruptive risks on the supply side. That is why we work closely with our partners and assess the situation on a daily basis, in order to be prepared to meet the demands of consumers and to ensure that they can have the full range of Nestlé products at their disposal.

On this occasion, I would like to welcome the efforts of all retail partners and their employees & # 8211 from the constant efforts to expand home delivery services to the way in which they have implemented, as a matter of priority, strict safety rules for consumers. from all units.

The significant restrictions that impacted logistics activity, from border closures to measures imposed on truck drivers, had, in the first phase, a significant impact at European level. Therefore, the efforts made by the local authorities and the collaboration with the neighboring countries, in developing and ensuring green corridors and free passage color, in order to further ensure the necessary products, are welcome.

What would you like buyers from large networks or distribution partners to know about the company's intention to continue investing in brands?
We will continue to invest in the development of Nestlé's portfolio to meet growing consumer expectations with new product offerings and redesigns, in line with consumer innovation and recipe reformulation efforts for a healthy lifestyle.

In the first part of the year, for example, we introduced on the Romanian market a wide range of innovative products and assortments, which are already available in stores in the country, such as: Nescafé 3in1, Maggi 5 Minute, Kit Kat Gold and Ruby, Nesquik All Natural Ready to Drink, Cheerful Oats, After Eight Limited Summer Edition with Mint and Strawberry Flavor, as well as new Joe Assortments: Joe Coconut Dreams, Joe Summer Dreams & # 8211 Colorful Leaf Wafers and Banana Flavored Milk Cream and strawberry.

Will in-store promotions return? What area are your marketing efforts targeting to increase shelf visibility and, implicitly, sales?
In-store promotions will find their role in the marketing mix once the restrictions generated by the state of emergency begin to be lifted and will be aligned with our goal of inspiring people to add a touch of love to all their actions. This vision is also based on the three major programs *, which start from the products we offer and which continue with what we aim to achieve in the long term: to inspire people to lead a healthy and tasty life, a clean and responsible life towards the environment and the planet, a life with accomplishments and optimal professional development.

“We welcome solidarity with consumers, value chain partners, our communities and the Romanian state. Our actions in this regard, based on Creating Shared Value - our vision to create value for both investors and the company, as well as for society, in the long term - will continue to develop and the directions of social involvement will remain a priority, in addition to corporate programs *, through which we want to help people have a better, healthier life, such as: Nestlé for Healthier Kids, Nestlé Needs Youth, Nestlé for a Waste Free World. ”

Leszek Wacirz, Country Manager Nestlé Romania

Will price become the first factor in making the purchase decision from now on?
Price remains an important factor in the purchasing decision, which is joined by all these equally important aspects for consumers, namely: the quality of nutritional ingredients, transparency in communication and the impact that the company has on the environment and society.

In recent years, the general orientation of the consumer has shifted from quantity to quality, which is also seen in the high demand for premium products, with a traceability of the ingredients used, from a responsible company and a sustainable production strategy.

Health in all its aspects is a growing priority for consumers, even in the context of the pandemic, and there is an increasing emphasis on natural ingredients, clean labels and especially the sustainability of products.

How will you meet these consumer requirements in the local market in 2020?
At Nestlé, we try to have an overview of consumers' nutritional preferences. Therefore, we are concerned with improving products by reducing the amount of salt, sugars and saturated fats and by adding nutritious ingredients such as whole grains, high-fiber vegetables and micronutrients, to provide people with healthier alternatives without sacrificing the taste of products.

Our portfolio also includes gluten-free certified products, so that those who follow a gluten-free diet can enjoy the same taste of Nestlé products.

Globally, we are talking about a 45,000 tonne reduction in the amount of sugar in our products and a 6,500 tonne in the amount of salt. The goal for 2020 is to be able to report a 10% reduction in the amount of salt and saturated fats and a 5% reduction in the amount of sugar in Nestlé products.

At the local level, the portfolio goes through successive stages of reformulation and innovation of recipes, with the decrease of the amount of sugar, salt and fats, but also of the introduction of new products to be aligned to the requirements of consumers.

Ne putem aștepta la întreruperi în lanțul de aprovizionare, ca urmare a pandemiei?
Până în prezent, nu am observat un impact major asupra activității noastre generale, cu privire la activitatea din lanțul de aprovizionare. Deși unele întârzieri în livrarea materiilor prime, precum și a produselor finite sunt inevitabile, nu avem întreruperi în lanţul de aprovizionare şi producţie.

Vorbim însă de o situație extrem de dinamică, astfel încât măsuri suplimentare sunt implementate atât de noi, cât și de toți partenerii noștri pe partea de aprovizionare, producție, logistică și distribuție, astfel încât ruperile de stoc să aibă un impact cât mai mic.

Obiectivele companiei pe piața din România, în 2020, rămân neschimbate?
Este încă prea devreme pentru a evalua impactul complet al COVID-19, așadar, cel puțin pentru moment, obiectivele setate pentru 2020 rămân o prioritate. Ne propunem să venim, în continuare, în sprijinul comunităților afectate de pandemia de coronavirus, cu ajutorul partenerilor noștri umanitari din România.

Totodată, ne păstrăm toate planurile de implicare socială prin care ne dorim să oferim oamenilor alternative pentru o viață mai sănătoasă și să contribuim la dezvoltarea și prosperitatea comunităților din care facem parte.

Nu în ultimul rând, vom continua să creștem portofoliul Nestlé cu opțiuni alimentare inovatoare în toate categoriile de produse, astfel încât să putem oferi consumatorilor alternative potrivite pentru fiecare moment al vieții.

Creating Shared Value
În această perioadă, atenția companiei Nestlé România s-a concentrat pe siguranța și sănătatea angajaților, a colaboratorilor și a oamenilor din comunitate. Astfel, eforturile și fondurile au fost redirecționate către susținerea sistemului medical, către persoanele fără aparținători din centrele de plasament sau căminele de bătrâni și către familiile nevoiașe, din zonele cele mai expuse.

Împreună cu Crucea Roșie, Banca de alimente și Asociația Zi de bine, compania a redirecționat aproape de 1,5 milioane de porții de Nescafé, Maggi, Nespresso, Joe, Kit Kat, Lion2go, Fitness, Chocapic și Cini Minis, precum și fonduri pentru achiziționarea a 100.000 de măști de protecție pentru spitalele din țară.

Merele se decojesc si li se scot cotoarele. Se aseaza intr-o tava tapetata cu hartie de copt (23吚 cm ), se pune in interiorul fiecaruia un cubulet de unt iar zaharul se presara deasupra. Punem la cuptor la 180 °C ,cam 30 min pana se inmoaie.

In interiorul merelor puteti pune fructe din dulceata,nuci ,alune ,scortisoara…

Intre timp preparam blatul astfel: separam ouale, albusurile le batem spuma cu zaharul, galbenusurile le amestecam cu un praf de sare si zahar vanilat, unim apoi cele doua si adaugam treptat si faina. Turnam compozitia peste mere si punem din nou la cuptor pana ce blatul se coace.
