Happy new year! The start of the year has been pretty hectic for me, but I’m grateful. I have a lot of events and projects that I am working on and I can’t wait for some of them to be launched. As for the workshops, we still have ongoing workshops that we offer to parents. Check out two parenting workshops that I know will leave you excited!

Baby Nutrition and Dental Care (February 22, 2014 / 9:00 AM to 12:00 NN)

Do you know that Feburary is National Children’s Dental Health Month? So it’s perfect time to encourage parents to teach their children on how to properly care for their teeth.

And to go with that, we have included proper nutrition as on of the topics. I have had friends wonder why their children are underweight or under nourished when these babies and toddlers are actually eating well. Manila Workshops and Medela Moms, Inc. came up with this informative session to help equip parents with the information they need to provide their children with proper nutrition and oral care that they need and deserve.

The Baby Nutrition and Dental Care workshop is a half-day session that will guide you through:

Nutritional Meals for Baby
Baby-Led Weaning
and Dental Care


Our Speakers:

The baby nutrition learning session will be handled by Ms. Cecile Bayaga, and dental care will be discussed by Dr. Fina, on behalf of Xylitol.

Ms. Cecile Bayaga is a registered nutritionist-dietitian and a full-time faculty at the College of Home Economics, University of the Philippines-Diliman. She has been teaching Principles of Nutrition, Nutrition for the Lifecycle, and Medical Nutrition Therapy for the past 12 years. She has published scientific articles on glycemic index, essential fatty acids for brain development, and clinical nutrition. In 2005, the Nutritionists-Dietitians’ Association of the Philippines awarded her as The Most Promising Nutritionist-Dietitian. She has been happily married for 9 years and has one child.
