Teach Your Child to Read

Teach Your Child to Read

It's been 8 months since I gave birth to my third child. Although, I'm over the postpartum period and my body returns to a non-pregnant state. It seems my postpartum belly just doesn't seem to go away. Haha. I'm sure some moms can relate to me.

Healthy Diet Safeguards Against COVID-19

The COVID-19 Pandemic intensifies the Philippine’s battle against Double Burden of Malnutrition. Double Burden of Malnutrition is defined by World Health Organization (WHO) as “the coexistence of undernutrition along with overweight and obesity, or diet-related non communicable diseases, within individuals, households and populations, and across the life course.” 

The limited distribution and access to food supplies aggravate the plight of poor and low income Filipino households to sustain each person’s required nutrients through healthy meals. On the other hand, home confinement due to the mandated community quarantine may cause more people to not only restrict their physical activities but also to overeat and/or consume more food with empty calories as part of coping with stress and/or boredom. 

Given the importance of maintaining healthy diets to sustain our health and immunity against viruses and bacteria, we should turn to the practice of Pinggang Pinoy® as a viable safeguard to protect our family from diseases.

My Breastfeeding Journey

Breastfeeding

I've been exclusively breastfeeding my third son, #LittlestManGadi since he was born. I had two failed breastfeeding attempts with my two older boys. I think It was because of the lack of knowledge and support back then. That is why I  am so thankful to Breastfeeding Pinays community and to my breastfeeding friends. Although I'm a silent reader at the former, it equipped and encouraged me to press on. My friends would randomly send encouragement and answers my many questions.
