Staying confined for almost two years was challenging for the children- and for the moms who needed to find ways to ensure that kids are given adequate support and stimulus for their All-Around Development (with proper nutrition and stimulation). Social Media Influencer and soon-to-be mom of 6, Pehpot Pineda, more known as Mommy Pehpot, admits going through this: “It was really challenging for me to take care of the kids during the lockdown.
