Making reunions REAL again

Image
Filipinos are all about family. The mandatory family reunion happens not just once or twice a year, but every chance possible. From Birthdays to graduations all the way to the grand Christmas reunion, family gatherings are always filled with food, catching up, and loads of wholesome family fun.




Lately, we’ve seen many changes in traditional family dynamics — from a simple meal to dance numbers by the grandkids. Families are reaching out to friends and relatives abroad through technology. While technology can be used to connect people, it can also become a wall between family members.

How many times have you walked into a room and you are ignored by everyone hooked on their gadgets? This is the reality that has become the new norm. The simple act of truly connecting has become a valuable commodity that needs to be safeguarded by everyone in the family.

This Holiday season, a brand has decided to take action to advocate for real connections. It’s not asking you to completely give up yo…

We Filipinos really love the Christmas season, more than the food and the celebration, one of the anticipated moments that we are looking forward is to be with our family and loved ones spend time with them after a long year of work or being away.
I can still remember when I was a kid, when I visit our relatives during the Christmas vacation, I can see all their preparations from changing the curtains to a new one, new table cloth, place mats, and even door mats just to prepare for the expected visitors, no wonder us Filipinos has been tagged as very hospitable.
So when I grew up, this kind of custom is something that I inherited from all of my relatives and family members,I make sure that the house is clean, all curtains are newly washed or replaced, so as table cloths and door mats, so whenever my dearest relatives and closest friends drop by, they can be welcomed with a fresh ambiance.
Every year, whenever the holiday season comes, unexpected things happens, like meeting your fami…

Why Potatoes Are Good for Pregnant Moms

Image
Nutrition is very important for everyone, especially for soon-to-be moms. When I was pregnant, I was very conscious of my baby’s health and safety in my tummy. And I’m sure us parents agree that dietary and lifestyle choices have a great impact on the health of babies.



During pregnancy, you are not the only one who is eating, the baby in your tummy also eats with you. You need to consume enough vitamins and minerals to meet your daily dietary needs. And it goes without saying that you need to munch on healthy and nutritious food, not just anything you feel like eating.


When I was pregnant, I refrained from eating rice and replaced it with fruits and vegetables, eating hard boiled eggs and boiled potatoes really helped me out, too. Yes, potatoes!
My doctor told me that potatoes are rich in potassium. Would you believe it has more potassium than a banana?  Also, a medium size potato (5.2 oz) with skin on only has 110 calories. Combine that with some eggs and fruits and you got yourself…

Nido 3+/5+ empowers parents to say Yes and Let Go!

Image
Is it ok for us parents to be overprotective to our kids? Being protective of your is a child is natural for parents especially for mother's. But I've read that being too overprotected can cause more harm to the child, it increases the child anxiety when they are not allowed to overcome their fear.

Honestly, I'm one of the so-called "helicopter mom", I really pay close attention to my children, their problems, emotion, and experiences. I usually say " No" to the things or situation that they might get hurt emotionally and physically. I'm not allowing them to face their fear, learn and enjoy what usually kids love to do.



With this being said, I noticed my daughter becoming a little bit aloof and unexpressive when it comes to her emotions and that is the reason that I allowed her to learn things on her own way with proper guidance, and that really turned things around.

Like children, parents also should learn to say Yes and Let Go! This is what I'…

A Mommy Forum for a Mother-Baby Friendly Philippines

Image
Mommies unite for an afternoon to support and promote breastfeeding in the country I admire mommies that still breastfeed their child until the age of 2 years old either in public or in private breastfeeding rooms. 
Breastfeeding may be considered a challenging phase of motherhood but the physical, mental, and emotional benefits of breastfeeding for mothers and babies truly make the journey worthwhile. While more and more mothers recognize that breastmilk will always be superior compared to formula milk, there is still a need to spread awareness on its benefits and to encourage people to support breastfeeding.


In response to the global campaign of protecting, promoting, and supporting breastfeeding, World Vision Development Foundation, in partnership with the Department of Health, launched Mother-Baby Friendly Philippines. This two-year project aims to: 1.Support and strengthen the implementation of Executive Order 51 (The Philippine Milk Code of 1986), Republic Act 7600 (The Rooming…

Goya Double Hazelnut Snack and Dessert Ideas

Image
As a mom, one of the things that I have encountered with my daughter as she grows is being picky with what she ate. It was not easy and since I need to consider her health and nutrition I can not just give in to giving her what my daughter only wanted.I knew then that I needed to make a smart choice of giving her something that she will like and enjoy.


Recently I was invited to an intimate event by Goya with my co-mommies and together with celebrity moms Camille Pratts and Kelly Misa and well-known hairstylist and makeup guru, Lourd Ramos.



 I knew that this is the end for my quest in looking for smart choices in life, in the event they all shared their experiences in life and the smart choices that they have made to excel as a person, mom and a business owner.



Chef AJ of Privatus prepared some gourmet dishes and used Goya Double Hazelnut as one of the key ingredients.



When I saw Goya Double Hazelnut Spread in the Supermarket it was way much cheaper than the brand that I usually buy a…

Raise a Happy and Healthy Kid with NestoGrow

Image
Giving your child what they need is not the only factor that will help them grow. We may be able to give them the toys that they wanted but it does not end there we also need to ensure that their emotional needs and the environment that they move is suitable for them. And as a mom, one of the key roles that we have is to ensure that everything is balanced and we are giving them the proper attention that will help them feel they are truly loved.

Happiness has and will always be a fundamental desire of moms for their families. Being aware of this is important, especially in today’s environment where negativity and bad news abound. “Ang kaligayahan ng pamilya ko ay mahalaga sa akin dahil ito ang sukatan ng halaga ko bilang ina.” This is a resounding insight that Nestlè continues to learn from many moms.
