My kids are loves to eat a lot. If we ran out of food in the pantry or fridge, then I will be doomed. They would bug me for hours or they will go back to the pantry and open the cabinets and would search for food for hours. But then not all my kids have the same taste and appetite. Unfortunately, my eldest is such a hardwork. He would be picky when it comes to food that it ha become so annoying on my part. While two of my kids would eat our meals with gusto, he is quite different. You would easily see form his face the dislike. 

I have challenged myself for the past years to at least feed him healthy food but oftenly I would end up frustrated. Amongst the dishes I would make, he only eats meat and fishes, no vegetables and fruits. As for the fish, he will choose what he only likes. The rest, he wouldn't even dare try. 

According to Women’s and Children’s Health Network, “It is recommended that young children under six years old eat two to three servings of fish each week. A serving for a young child is about 75g, which is about the amount of three fish fingers. Small fare good for children. Canned tuna is a good choice as the mercury levels are very low, and only small tuna are used for canning.” 

I wrote here in this blogspot how to end mealtime battles. But then again, my eldest is a constant work, and I know I will slowly get there. But still, I hope you can get a thing or two from there. 

In this blogpost, I will share with you some fish recipes that is so easy to do at home. I always stock tuna canned goods in the pantry because it is healthier choice for the family and very versatile.

Growing up to a family of medical professionals, we do first aids like it is a normal thing for us. I remembered when my aunts managed my dengue fever at home, stitched my brother’s head secondary to a fall, applied plaster cast to my youngest brother’s hairline fracture at home. As a nurse myself, I am very well confident in giving my patients bedside nursing care as well as first aid treatments even in my sleep. But everything is really different when it is your own child. All the things that I learned in school and applied in work is totally blacked out when it comes to my children. I remembered my eldest being hit by an iron on his face and he was bleeding profusely and there I was shaking and confused by merely seeing all the blood.  


Most families today, particularly parents, remain clueless on what to do when an unexpected medical situation strikes that can affect their kid or kids. Perhaps due to lack of enough training from their own parents, misinformation, or simply absence of awareness.

To help most parents become equipped with adequate knowledge on first aid for kids, GlenMark  Philippines Inc. holds today a training session for them. The objective is to provide training on what to do and how to react and apply first-aid treatments for various medical issues that may involve their kids.


Focal points of the training session involve the safety of kids when at home, during travels, or even when staying at home in the company of the househelp or with the parents themselves. Foskina, a product of GlenMark Philippines Inc. through its online platform firstaidforkids.ph, will help equip parents or every household with ample familiarity and understanding on how to manage or handle first aid correctly.

This will involve training on how to respond to scenarios such as cuts and wounds, various bites and stings, applying correct Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) techniques for infants and toddlers, burns and scalds, choking, and even fever and febrile convulsions.

For us to be able to be equipped on how to respond and treat our kids, we need to have a first aid kit at home and make sure it is complete all the time. What do we need to include in our first aid kit are the following:
  • sterile gauze
  • plaster
  • elastic bandage
  • antiobiotic cream/ointment like Foskina
  • burn ointment
  • Paracetamol
  • Ibuprofen
  • Anti-histamine
  • scissors
  • thermometer




Firstaidforkids.ph is the online wound care advocacy site of Glenmark Philippines Inc. targeting parents and even househelps. Just recently, Glenmark through firstaidforkids.ph in cooperation with projectmommyger.net conducted a training session called “Yaya Does Montessori” for the “yaya” to train them on how to handle wound care and apply basic first-aid treatment for kids.

Mommy bloggers and participants of the First Aid Training
Parents are the ones directly in charge of their kids’ welfare and safety, the responsibility of keeping the home and living environment safe and secure. It is best that they know what to do and not to panic in every medical situation.

I understand your concern being a first time mom. We have no idea yet what we are doing let alone if we are doing right for our kids. As a mom, all we want is the best for our children, nothing else. I would like to share with you some of my take aways from the recent Cetaphil event I attended for mommies.

Dr. Leelin and first time mom, Kaye Abad
As you all know, Cetaphil has been in the market for as long as I can remember. I have been a Cetaphil kid also during those days when my skin went really dry. And being a mom myself, I want also my kids to get the same care as I did back then. 

Please bear in mind that our baby's skin is very sensitive and prone to all the irritants there is in the environment. In here are some tips and my take away from Dr. Leelin's talk at the event.
  • Do not use harsh materials.
  • Avoid using products with alcohol, dyes, and fragrance
  • Use soap sparingly or at least with pH of 5.5-6.5
  • Give short cool baths
  • Ensure use of safe products


I am glad that Cetaphil, the brand that I have grown up with has already made a line of products for babies. They have shampoo, body wash, lotion and wipes. 

Shampoo. It has natural chamomile which helps promote relaxation and sleep in children. It is tear-free, soap-free, hypoallergenic and pH balanced. It smells good and gentle to my son's skin. There was no irritation that occurred. 

Gentle and Moisturizing Wash. It contains Aloe Vera, Almond Oil, Glycerin and Panthenol which helps retain mositure and keep the skin moisturized. It also has mild scent which are not irritating to the skin. 

Lotion. It has shea butter which helps keep skin smooth, moisturized and reduce inflammation. In fairness to this one, it is not that sticky which I veer away from lotions, and gentle to my son's skin. 


These line of products have been in the market for as long as I can remember and continously improve their products. They have been trusted by so many mommies for their babies even first time mom celebrity--Kaye Abad. According to her, it is better to spend more on her baby's needs and know that it works, to which I agree. 


With my three kids, there were several skin problems that I encountered with them. But the most common is when all of them had dry skin during their first few months and I am glad I used Cetaphil during those time. It made my kids' skin moist until such time it became moist. 


What about you, how do you take care of your baby's skin? Let me know in the comment section below.
