Any parent knows that raising a child is tough. It requires emotional, physical, and intellectual commitment along with stable financial support. Parenting styles have changed through the years and while it never has been an easy task, technology has undoubtedly helped new parents make informed decisions when it comes to the different stages of their child's life.
However, add a global health crisis to the equation and parents find themselves in a more difficult situation. How do you raise your child in this unpredictable environment?
Multimedia star and celebrity mom Toni Gonzaga-Soriano knows all about these challenges and she believes that the best way to protect and bring up her son during this time is to make sure that he grows with All-Around Development in immunity, brain, and bones.
In these crucial days, giving kids the complete nutrition they need spells the difference between a happy and normal childhood versus a sickly and miserable one.
As a modern Filipina mom, Gonzaga shares that setting priorities early has helped her become a supportive mother to Seve Soriano. This has also allowed her to make the best of 2020.
At four years old, Seve is at a stage where he is very active, curious, and strong. When community restrictions were imposed, the hardest part was not being able to go outside and let Seve explore. But the experience has also changed her perspective.
''We were given a universal timeout to really just reassess everything in life—our decisions we have made in the past and our priorities and goals that we have for our families and our kids,'' said Gonzaga. ''What I truly treasure last year was the memories we built inside our home.''
She also shared that it allowed her to be a mom 24/7 without any distractions and realize that no matter how chaotic it is outside with everything that has happened, as long as your kid still feels that everything is normal inside the house, everything will be okay.
While challenging, Gonzaga admits that there are still plenty of beautiful discoveries during this time like how Seve is already able to carry a conversation with adults. She attributes this to the mini reflection time Seve and his dad have before bedtime as it encouraged her son to talk and express himself with words.
She also discovered that Seve has displayed an interest in production and being behind the scenes like his dad.
All these show that Seve is able to grow up as an All-Around Kid.
To make sure that Seve's growth continues in this trajectory, the Soriano family only trusts Vitaminized Lactum 3+ as their nutritional partner.
''With proper nutrition, I only give him Vitaminized Lactum 3+,'' said Gonzaga.
Made by Mead Johnson Nutrition, Lactum is three decades strong in the Philippines, helping Filipino moms provide nourishment to their children.
Vitaminized Lactum 3+ aids in giving children All-Around Development as it has Vitamins A, C, and E, Zinc, Selenium, and Prebiotic Inulin which helps support immunity; DHA, Iron, and Iodine to help support brain development; and Calcium and Vitamin D to help support bone development. Together with proper nutrition and simulation, this will help make any child an All-Around Kid like Seve.
Filipinos saw Vitaminized Lactum 3+ in action at its newest commercial, featuring Gonzaga and Seve, directed by her husband and Seve's dad, Paul Soriano at their own home.
''It was a great experience working with Seve and Tine (Gonzaga). It was like we were having fun, playing, we were just being a family, it just so happened that there were cameras there,'' said the award-winning director. ''We were capturing real moments, those were genuine moments.''
When it comes to 2021, the family has a positive outlook for the year.
As for tips in raising an All-Around Kid, Gonzaga and her husband recommends interactive storytelling, constant communication, and frequent affirmation. And of course, including fruits and Vitaminized Lactum 3+ in Seve's diet.
