June turned out to be a particularly rainy month with most days of the week overcast and chilly from sudden downpours and occasional drizzles. On June 11, it was no different — pitter patters of fervent droplets fell on the terracotta brick roof of  Tanderra at Loewen Road that Saturday afternoon. But the gathering of children, babies and parents within the white-washed walls of the boutique family members club was anything but gloomy; the sunshiny smiles and innocent laughter of this special group of guests drowned out the watery deluge outside, while the buoyant camaraderie reflected the fun they were all having at this intimate Mummyfique X Aptamil tea party.

The rain could not keep the guests away from this special tea party

Aptamil — Europe’s number one baby milk company was introduced in an afternoon of experiential activities that covered all aspects of our senses.  Aptamil facts and information were shared in fun and educational ways while the silky smooth milk texture and wholesome creamy taste of the milk powder came in yummy forms like artisanal chocolates.

Imported from New Zealand and trusted by mothers worldlwide, Aptamil is backed by over 50 years of scientific research conducted by scientists, paediatricians, and nutritionists.  Aptamil Toddler and Junior Gold+ contain Pronutra+, a uniquely designed system of nutrients which provides 123mg DHA & EPA per daily consumption, is the closest- to help your little one meet WHO recommendations for daily DHA & EPA intake.**   A patented prebiotic blend of scGOS : lcFOS (9:1), zinc and iron are also specifically included in Pronutra+, to help support your bub’s natural defences.

‘What I want to be when I grow up’ was the activity theme of the party. Dress-up corners with occupation costumes saw many mini doctors, firemen, ballerinas, scientist, police and even a chef ham it up for the camera.

The sumptuous buffet tea spread took the theme one notch up with little ‘occupation cupcakes’ which our little guests could pick and choose from.  No surprise that the fastest cupcake to disappear from the stack was the pilot cupcake!

No, that’s not an Aptamil tin. It’s an Aptamil tin cake made of vanilla sponge cake with fondant and butter cream by DarlingTots. The entire structure is edible!

For the adults, we had a little surprise treat for them. One of the top chocolatiers in Singapore, Anjali Chocolat created a host of delicious handmade premium morsels that had the guests coming back again and again for more.  Little did they know that the smooth, creamy taste was from Aptamil milk formula!


Handcrafted by Anjali herself, the truffles came in three flavours – white chocolate with Aptamil and strawberry, milk chocolate with Aptamil, and milk chocolate with cornflakes and Aptamil. There was an Aptamil chocolate drink as well, which garnered rave reviews overall from those who tried it.

An interactive story telling session was held in the midst of the tea party, to keep the minis occupied.

The guests had a load of educational fun that afternoon and for 2 hours, the pelting rain and gloomy skies were all but forgotten.  They went home, bellies filled, new knowledge acquired, new friends made and with an Aptamil care pack that consists of an AptaAdvantage membership, Aptamil milk formula and and chock-full of materials to help their children keep one step ahead in life.
