Hailing from Vietnam, this small-scale agricultural outfit makes healthy, gourmet produce with a focus on traceability, healthy practices and better resilience to climate change.

One stormy night when Sam cannot sleep, her mum suggests that she counts some sheep. But how can she count them when the littlest sheep can’t jump over the fence? Counting Sheep is the first of three rhyming story books written by Pippa Chorley, a British teacher who lives in Singapore. We got our hands on a copy of this gorgeous book (illustrated wonderfully by Danny Deeptown) and we think it makes a very sweet bedtime story for kids. It’s filled with messages of creative problem solving, helping others and never giving up. Available at local book stores and online.

Who knew we needed protein ice cream? WOAH! is a Singapore-made handcrafted artisan ice cream chockfull of premium ingredients and high in nutrition to support a healthy lifestyle. It started as a homemade recipe by founder Edward Foo for his mother, who suffered Acute Myeloid Leukemia and needed appealing protein food choices while undergoing chemotherapy. With her loss in appetite, he wanted to provide her with a healthy option that was tasty but also fulfilled her dietary needs for recovery. WOAH! protein ice cream was the result, being smooth on the palate and easy to digest. It’s high in protein, calcium and iron, and low in fat, carbs, calories and sugar.
