Rep. Rida Robes: A Dedicated Mom and Breastfeeding Advocate

Breastfeeding is essential for your child's health and wellness, not only that breastmilk has the right nutrients that your child needs for them to build their immune system, it will also help their body fight viruses and bacteria.

Aside from being beneficial for your child, breastfeeding also benefits us, moms, as it reduces the risk of breast cancer and creates a deeper bond with our little one.



While not all moms have the ability to breastfeed their child due to medical reasons, this brings the need for more human milk banks in the country to reach all the moms who need support in giving their babies breastmilk.



In taking a step of making it possible, San Jose Del Monte Bulacan  Congresswoman Rida Robes who is also a breastfeeding supporter is planning to put up a human milk bank that will help mothers in Bulacan especially those with infants that are in emergencies that needs milk. This program will also encourage breastfeeding moms to donate their breast milk.

Hakab Na! 2019: Empower parents, enable breastfeeding

Breastfeeding is more than just a way for you to feed your child, this is your connection with them, a bond that no one can match and a way for moms to show affection and warmth to their little ones. With this being said, breastfeeding awareness is necessary to let everyone know of its importance and how it can help your child and you develop an unbreakable bond.

I've been supporting the breastfeeding community since before, I encourage soon to be moms and moms with 0-2 years old child to breastfeed. Breastmilk is important especially to newborn babies, it has a lot of nutrients that will help the babies to grow strong and healthier.

I breastfed my daughter until she's 2 years old I noticed that does not easily get infected with viruses and other bacteria. That's why this year, I'm here again to support fellow mommies for breastfeeding awareness on how good and beneficial for both moms and the baby breastfeeding is.

Integrating the Whole Child Approach with K-12: Steps Towards a Future for Holistic Learning

When we talk about holistic learning, it always entails the progressive pedagogy called the Whole Child Approach (WCA). Initiated by the the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD), this approach is a fresh take on what holistic education means, taking into consideration all the aspects of a young learner´s journey towards long-term development and success. With its tenets, the Whole Child Approach seeks to create challenging and sustainable learning environments for young learners, shaping them into well-rounded individuals.

Recently, particularly in early-childhood education policy-making and practice, the idea that the WCA represents an incomplete methodology has proliferated. Policy-makers who are against the whole child approach often argue from a practical standpoint: they look at a child and see their education as a sort of investment. This is how they think: if the process of "investing" in a child's education takes too much resources, it s…
