My son’s birthday is tomorrow and I
decided to create a blog decided to post about myself and my growing family on my old blog. I am thinking of posting anything that interest me. Well, if you know me, interesting for me is about my family and making enough money to support them.
I will start posting something about the toddler milk available for my son which turns one on the morrow. I started my research on choosing between cow’s milk( preferably UHT processed ) and toddler formula( the one you see in the supermarket ).
From research, I’ve found out that cow’s milk isn’t suitable for children below one year old. Although a lot of people who have used cow’s milk argue that they didn’t experience any adverse effects on their children’s health, I wouldn’t risk it. Cow’s milk won’t be in his diet until he is 2-3 years old. I’ll do my research again before then.
I abruptly started my research on available milk supplements available here in the Philippines. Here’s a list of the widely available ones and their nutritional content per 100 grams:
- Nido Junior 1-3. Energy 463 kcal, Protein 17 grams, Carbohydrates 53 grams
- Progress Gold. Energy 450 kcal, Protein 14 grams (40% whey 5.8 g, 60% casein 8.6 g), carbohydrate 64 grams
- Sustagen Junior. Energy 393 kcal, Protein 16 grams, Carbohydrates 71 grams
- Bonakid. Energy 450 kcal, Protein 14 grams, Carbohydrates 64 grams
- Vitaminized Lactum 1+. Energy 440 kcal, Protein 15 grams, Carbohydrate 64 grams
- Gain Plus Advanced. Energy 495 kcal, Protein 18.8 g, Carbohydrate 49.8 g

Let’s face it, everyone wants to look younger.
The idea of looking younger means less pimples, less viewable crows feet, less lines on our forehead and radiant smooth skin.
What can you do to look younger in 10 weeks
Sleep 7-8 hours a day. Research says that you get more than just rest when sleeping. It is said that the body heals itself when sleeping.
With regular exercise, the blood is pumped much more rapidly through our blood vessels resulting in nutrition passed on to our cells faster.
This will eventually result in a more radiant skin.
Drinking more water helps in getting clearer eyes, radian complexion and better bowel movement as it helps clean our body of wastes.
Eat yellow and leafy vegetables. Vitamin A, E and C are the most noted beauty vitamins. They help reduce free radicals. They promote cell and tissue renewal.
We must remember that beauty is not only physical attractiveness. Beauty is also internal. If we live right and eat right, we will become healthy internally which will be the reflected on the outside.

During the past two to three months a lot of news has been about the feared AH1N1 virus.
Having had fever in the last few weeks, I always feared that I caught it. The good thing was I never did. What I got were normal flu.
What to do?
The most basic thing we should do to protect ourselves from this virus or any other viral diseases and bacteria is to wash our hands regularly.
Although, I had to thank my mom for reminding me everyday to wash my hand. She even sneaks in a bottle of isopropyl alcohol in bag!
If you still don’t get why this is a good advice, it’s because of the bills that come when you get sick.
