Meet Mommy Star:Newest Eden Mommy

The beautiful host, Ms. Gellie introduced The Eden Amazing Mom, who is none other than the controversial video blogger queen herself, Mommy Star! I got a chance to meet her during the launch...her launch! A very witty and talented woman indeed,  who seemed to have stored up all the energy all over her body. 

Mommy Star, together with her favorite TiTo Erwin shared to us one of her easiest and yummiest recipe, her little star's favorite.  The Fried Tilapia stuffed with Eden cheese. A meal may be simple yet made ordinary if it's cooked and prepared with love. I remember my daughter's line, I love my food because my mom cooked it with love! Sometimes, we fail to see the star in us...Good thing, we have our wonderful kids who makes us feel how bright shining star we are through their innocent eyes.
Mommy Star is sure to tickle you with her charm.
According to Mommy Star, Tito Erwin has been her cooking partner since she was young. They enjoy cooking and doing some experimental cooking together. Something that they do almost on a daily basis. Mommy Star also works in the kitchen with her pretty daughter as their way of bonding time. Maybe, other busy moms can try it. We need to spend more quality time with our children even in our hectic schedule.
Mommy Star shared her interesting and affordable recipe to us. While Tito Erwin was cooking, Mommy Star entertained some questions from her audience, the mommy bloggers of course. I raised my hand and was able to throw the first question...What easy pork recipe can she suggest me to prepare for my Hubby? Adobo! Simply add Eden Cheese to make the Adobo sauce thick and tasty. That's a good idea! Will try it real soon!

This is the yummy Pritong Tilapia, so cheesy from the inside!

And when we thought that they could not surprise us any longer, they come up with the first salt room in the country! Salt room? –you say, yes SALT.

You think all milks are the same?


This can be one tough question...Moms, have you ever been to the grocery and wondered what kind of milk you should give your child? From cow’s milk to goat’s milk, full cream to skim, liquid to powder—why should it matter anyway?  Aren’t all milks the same in terms of the nutrition they provide?

The answer is NO.

The key difference that moms should take careful note of is the kind and amount of nutrients their children can get from it. Although all kinds of milk are rich in macro (carbohydrates, fats and protein) and micro (vitamins and minerals) nutrients, not all contain those that answer the needs of children at specific ages.

Kids during their early childhood years, for example, easily get sick because they have little exposure to diseases and therefore have not yet developed the immunologic defenses needed to fend them off. To address this, moms should provide their kids with foods that have the right nutrients, along with an age-specific milk that contains both probiotics and prebiotics.   

Probiotics are live good bacteria that promote stomach balance and help strengthen the immune system. Prebiotics, on the other hand, act as a multiplier of good bacteria, ensuring acceptable good-to-bad bacteria ratio in the tummy and protection from within.

Studies reveal that the human brain grows about 3.5 times in mass from 0 to 5 years old. That is why kids during this time are able to learn and absorb new knowledge like a sponge. To support this, moms can give their child age-specific milk with high levels of DHA, ALA and LA, which are fatty acids that work together to promote proper brain structure development and normal cognitive functions.

All these and more can be found in NIDO® 3+ and NIDO® 5+. From the best of NestlĂ© Research™: NIDO® 3+ and NIDO® 5+ are the only age-specific milk brands with Lactobacillus PROTECTUS®, millions of live good bacteria that helps build your child’s bodily defenses.

NIDO® 3+ also contains a unique blend of natural fibers and nutrients called Prebio® 3, while NIDO® 5+ is enriched with CALCI-N® to help build healthy bones by providing better calcium absorption.

Milk plays a very important role in the overall growth and development of children, and so it pays to know what they need at different ages and stages of their growth for one to make the right milk choice.  

For more information, visit www.lakingamazing.ph

Give your little ones the nutrition they need during their crucial growing up years with NIDO® 3+ and NIDO® 5+.


# # #


About NIDO® 3+
NIDO® 3+ is specially formulated with the right amount and combination of nutrients for growth and development during his pre-school years. It has DHA, ALA, LA, Folic Acid and Taurine to support brain function and is the only one with Prebio® 3 and Lactobacillus PROTECTUS® to help protect and build your child’s bodily defenses.

Herbalife’s Nutrition At Work Survey Reveals:Majority of Philippines’ Workforce Lead Largely Sedentary Lifestyles, Putting them at Risk of Obesity

PHILIPPINES, April 25, 2016 – Herbalife, a global nutrition company, has released the findings of the new Nutrition At Work Survey, which revealed that the majority of Philippines’ workforce leads largely sedentary lifestyles, putting them at risk of obesity. The Survey1, which was designed to understand the lifestyle habits and attitudes of Asia Pacific’s modern workforce, was conducted in March with 5,500 full-time workers in 11 Asia-Pacific markets, including 500 workers from the Philippines.

According to the survey findings, almost nine out of 10 (85%) workers in the Philippines spend at least six hours a day sitting at their desk, with 52% of its workforce eating lunch at their work desk two to five times per week. The survey also revealed that majority of Philippines’ workforce (86%) exercise less than three times per week, with five out of 10 getting less than 30 minutes of physical activity a day at their workplace. This suggests a significantly worrying trend locally, on the back of rising obesity rates recorded in recent years.

Nevertheless, the risk of obesity could be averted if workers in the Philippines decide to take control over their own nutritional intake and exercise regimen. Close to eight out of 10 workers (75%) affirmed that they strive to live a healthy, active life, however, the majority of them noted that they find it difficult to stay active during workdays.

“With a majority of Philippines’ workforce leading largely sedentary lifestyles, our mission as a global nutrition company is to help people in the Philippines take practical steps towards leading healthy, active lives. By inculcating positive nutrition and active lifestyle habits to people in the Philippines, we hope that this will, over time, help reduce obesity risks and lead to positive improvements to the well-being of our people,” said Mr. Rosalio Valenzuela, General Manager of Herbalife Philippines.

Aimed at addressing health issues associated with sedentary lifestyles, and deepening practical understanding on the benefits of healthy, active lifestyles, Herbalife launched its fifth Asia Pacific Wellness Tour 2016, held in the months of April and May. The latest edition of the Wellness Tour builds upon the successes of the past four tours that welcomed more than 80,000 participants across the region, and features a host of medical symposiums, talks and workshops led by seven experts from Herbalife’s Nutrition Advisory Board (NAB), covering 26 cities across Australia, Cambodia, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Macau, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.

Gary Small, M.D. has recently visited the country and shared his expert views on digital dementia and brain aging at the “A Smart Way to Healthy Aging: A Talk by Gary Small, M.D.” event. Dr. Small, a specialist in brain health and aging, has authored over 500 scientific works and received numerous awards and honors, including the "Senior Investigator Award" from the American Association for Geriatric Psychiatry.


During the talk Dr. Small addressed health and nutrition related issues associated with sedentary lifestyles and share practical tips on how today’s workforce can live healthier lives by making simple changes to their daily lifestyles. Health and medical professionals, academics, as well as the general public have also engaged in lively dialogues with Dr. Small at the event, and had the chance to network with like-minded professionals through the Herbalife Asia-Pacific Wellness Tour platform.


Rounding up the team of Herbalife NAB experts who have participated in the Asia-Pacific Wellness Tour are:

·         Dr. David Heber, chairman of the Herbalife Nutrition Institute and Nutrition Advisory Board. A leading expert in the field of nutrition, named as one of “The World’s Most Influential Scientific Minds” by Thomson Reuters in 2014 and repeatedly included in “The Best Doctors in America”.

·         Dr. Chin-Kun Wang, an expert in metabolism and nutrition, with a focus on the clinical evaluation of nutritional supplements, nutraceuticals, functional foods and herbs. He was awarded the National Award of Biomedicine in Taiwan in 2008 for his contribution to medical education.

·         Dr. Julian Alvarez Garcia, a specialist in sports medicine and sports physiology who has advised professional teams, national teams and individual athletes on a range of disciplines including weightlifting, triathlons, mountain biking, football and basketball.

·         Dr. Darren Burgess, an expert in sports science and nutrition who has authored papers in multiple peer review journals. He is also the current Head of High Performance at Port Adelaide Football (AFL) Club, and the former Head of Fitness and Conditioning at Liverpool Football Club.

·         Dr. Nataniel Viuniski, an expert in pediatrics and nutrition who has authored “Childhood Obesity – A Practical Guide”. He is also currently an advisor to Brazil's Health and Education Ministry for Childhood Obesity.

·    Dr. Francis Gregory Samonte, one of the Philippines’ premier experts in pediatric neurology, and the first Filipino appointed to the NAB. He was a recipient of the Chairman’s Achievement Award from the University of Louisville, Kentucky’s Department of Pediatrics.

The NAB experts were also joined by Dr. Luigi Gratton, Herbalife’s vice president of nutrition education and development, who has written numerous articles on nutrition and obesity, and has appeared on television speaking on nutrition, anti-aging medicine, sports nutrition and other medical topics.

“With each new edition of the Wellness Tour, we are seeing an increasing number of people gain practical knowledge to lead better lives. We hope that that this year’s Tour will further empower people to take charge of their nutritional intake and exercise regimen, so that they can enjoy the full benefits of a healthy, active life,” Mr. Valenzuela concluded.

1Herbalife’s Nutrition At Work Survey was conducted in March 2016, with 5,500 respondents aged 18 and above, from Australia, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.
