Glenmark Philippines Inc. leads in creating First Aid “first responders” at school and at home

Glenmark Philippines, Inc., an affiliate of a leading research-based pharmaceutical company Glenmark Pharmaceuticals, conducted a “First Aid for Kids Training” through its brand on wound care, Foskina Ointment.



Through the training at the SMX Convention Center from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm, Glenmark aims to increase awareness about the value of knowing the application of basic first aid, particularly among parents and school facilitators of pre-school and kindergarteners.


Kids in this age range are usually prone to cuts, scrapes, and burns, acquired either at home, school or other areas like malls, parks, and playgrounds where they are most physically active. Thus, it is of utmost importance that parents and school facilitators are knowledgeable when it comes to applying first aid as the “first responders” on proper wound care management and in other cases of emergencies.



Among the highlights of the training will cover wound care and burn management, allergies and bites, and CPR and choking.  The lectures and hands-on demos will be led by the team behind Early Intervention Management, Dr. Dan Luchangco from the Emergency Department of the Makati Medical Center and Dr. Joy Sto. Domingo, Chairman of the VRP Emergency Medicine Consultants.

Media partners for the event include Manila Bulletin (Digital), Channel Hue, Experience Travel and Living magazine and Moms & Kids Magazine.


For cuts and scrapes, fix it with Foskina! For more information about Foskina Ointment, visit www.firstaidforkids.ph , or follow them at Instagram (firstaidforkidsph) or www.facebook.com/firstaidforkidsph.

EDUTAINMENT CHANNEL ZOOMOO SEEKS TO RAISE YOUR KIDS’ AQ

Have you ever worried that there’s so much stuff that’s unfit for kids to watch on tv these days? Parents and guardians need not to fret because ZooMoo provides a safe space for your little ones. Made especially for kids with developing minds, the channel aims to help parents provide a more kid-friendly entertainment for their preschoolers and make kids learn more about animals and nature.


ZooMoo recently hosted a panel discussion for parents and guardians on the importance of teaching their kids about animals and nature at an early age. The session discussed how parents can help children develop better AQ through different activities they can do at home,
and how ZooMoo provides assistance as their kids learn.


Led by journalist and environmental advocate Gregg Yan and lifestyle television host Kelly Misa-Fernandez, the panel session was held at the Zoo Coffee of Ayala Vertis North. The event was a fun morning filled with kids activities, interesting animal facts, and discussions focused on
how children can become good caretakers of the planet.


ZooMoo believes that fun and learning go well together. This English-language based media channel nourishes children’s Animal Quotient (AQ) through its library of shows that capture their attention and awaken their imagination. ZooMoo provides deeper information about animals, their habitats, behaviour, and characteristics in a simplified yet visual way that are highly
appealing to kids.

The channel comprises 1,500 self-contained shows combining spectacular wildlife footage with a range of puppetry, animations, and narrative techniques to create a unique viewing and learning experience for little viewers. ZooMoo’s programming lineup follow five themes: explore time, create time, play time, puzzle time and quiet time. The channel also carries a strong message of conservation to help kids become more compassionate towards the creatures we share the planet with.

With ZooMoo, parents are encouraged to share their child’s viewing experience which can be more interactive through the revolutionary ZooMoo App. Available to download on Google Play and AppStore, this innovative technology serves as a second screen where parents can allow their children to participate in the immersive world of ZooMoo shows on a tablet or smartphones even away from the home television. Children and parents engage in a world of games, music, puzzles and activities.

The ZooMoo app’s Parent Page offers personalized support for things parents can do with their children to help their learning. With the advent of this new form of programming, ZooMoo helps kids to grow up with a better grasp of the animal world, making them good stewards of this planet.

One of the defining characteristics of ZooMoo programming is that it aims to improve a child’s AQ providing a deeper, more meaningful understanding of different animals and species including their natural habitat, diet, unique traits, and other interesting trivia.

ZooMoo’s program line up is packaged in an easy to understand format that is fun for both parents and kids. SKYcable subscribers can choose to add ZooMoo (channel 120) to their channel line-up for only P20 per month via SKYcable Select.

5 Things Filipino Moms Worry About

Motherhood is an amazing feat. We look at a mom and wonder - how does she do it? Although the casual observer sees Wonder Woman, the Queen of Multitasking, we often miss what they do not let us see: their internal struggles and daily worries.


Lamoiyan Corporation’s Licealiz Head Lice Treatment shampoo reached out to mommy netizens (mothers who are active online or keep a blog to chronicle their motherhood journey) to find out the biggest concerns Filipino moms may have today.

The tribulations of motherhood
Being a mom is definitely not a walk in the park. Mommy Iris of the online blog Pinay Ads shares that as a first-time mom, she was worried about how to do everything properly. She says, “My worry is if I can do it (motherhood), especially as there are no books to guide us. You can’t really learn it properly until the baby arrives. (Ang worry ko is if I can do it, kasi syempre there are no books naman. Hindi mo naman mapag-aaralan agad unless andyan na talaga yung baby).” Both she and Mommy Gracie of Tipid Mommy agree that research is a good way to overcome this. “It helps a lot to read online articles, learn from experienced moms and from mom friends, both online and offline,” shares Mommy Gracie.

Raising well-rounded kids
All moms want their children to grow up as model citizens. Mommy Donna of Everyday Adventures wants her son Jayden to learn the value of excellence. “I know that I myself am a hardworking person, so I want him to grow up the same way (Kasi ako, alam ko sa sarili ko na I’m a hardworking person, so gusto ko ganun din siya paglaki),” she emphasizes. She also wants him to learn how to treat people kindly and be gentle to all kinds of people.

Academic pressures
The first day of school is not just nerve-wracking for the kids, but for the parents as well. For Mommy Gracie, the first time her son, Zee, entered school, she and her husband were worried about how he would do. But as she saw how much he flourished in his learning environment, she felt a little more at ease. As for Mommy Iris, whose daughter Sammy is three years old, she shares that finding the balance between learning and play is important. “At our house, when we play, there’s still learning. For example, colors, numbers, (Dito naman sa house ‘pag naglalaro kami, mayroon pa ‘ring halong learning. Kunware colors, numbers),” she recalls.

Interacting with other kids
As children grow older, the more they feel inclined to playing outside, exploring, and meeting other kids.  Sometimes, these interactions affect the children’s character, which is why Mommy Adae of Adae to Remember worries that her daughter Abby will meet kids who could be a bad influence to her. She says that a way to overcome this is to talk to the kids and tell them right away that what they are saying or doing is wrong. This is a sentiment that Mommy Reylen from Made it Through Mum also resonates with, especially if she feels that her kids will imitate children who disrespect their parents. “But I’m not that scared,” she admits. “Here in our household, they know how to respect others (Pero hindi naman ako ganun katakot. Kasi dito sa bahay, alam naman nila. Sanay silang rumespeto sa iba).”

Health risks
Like any mother, Mommy Mhaan of the blog Mommy Rockin’ in Style is always worried that her son, Cloud, is not getting the sufficient health resources he needs. When kids go out to play, the chances for exposure to various diseases increase. Mommy Mhaan is afraid that Cloud will get injured or contract diseases like dengue, flu, or head lice. “I’m doing my best, but sickness is inevitable,” she laments. She says that it is important to use the right products and take the right steps to easily reduce the health risks that the children are exposed to.

Head lice is one of the many unforeseen health risks that children can obtain. Licealiz Head Lice Treatment Shampoo is the perfect solution to eliminate both head lice and your worries. It is recommended to use Licealiz Head Lice Treatment Shampoo twice a week for two weeks for treatment of head lice.

Licealiz Head Lice Treatment Shampoo in 10mL and 60mL Regular and Soothing Coolness variants.

Serenitea creates #MomentsOfCompassion on its 10th anniversary

With ten years of prosperity and success under its belt, Serenitea believes that it’s time to give back and share the blessings to the community that put them on the map. As a culmination of its 10th anniversary celebration, Serenitea launched its initiative called #MomentsOfCompassion, which started Last October, 2018.


The founders of Serenitea, Juliet Chen (General Manager-North) and Jennifer Wong (General Manager-South) believe that compassion is the cornerstone of humankind. The founders believe that anyone can help make the world better in their own little way, whether through
charitable acts of service or donations. Furthermore, these little acts contribute to a bigger purpose or a greater good.


What makes this campaign special is that customers are involved in this endeavor because the brand believes that customers are an integral part of the Serenitea family. Customers joined by purchasing any of the Brown Sugar series items: Pearl and Grass Jelly Brown Sugar (a concoction made with luscious brown sugar ice, chewy pearls, grass jelly, and cream that’s inspired by a Taiwanese dessert served in a cup); Pearl Brown Sugar Taho (a chilled Taho sweetened with luscious brown sugar ice and topped with freshly cooked chewy pearls); Pearl Brown Sugar with Holly’s Milk (a concoction made with chewy pearls drenched in luscious brown sugar syrup mixed with creamy premium farm fresh milk); and Pearl Brown Sugar (a concoction made with chewy pearls drenched in luscious brown sugar syrup,
mixed with creamy premium farm fresh milk, topped with our Signature Cheese Frost and generously sprinkled with Muscovado). The Brown Sugar series is one-of-a-kind because of its creamier taste without an overpowering sweetness. More so, the inclusion of a popular Filipino
treat such as taho is also a way to take a beloved Pinoy street snack a notch higher for a cozy teashop.

Richard Juan spent the afternoon with kids from Bahay Aruga

This year, Serenitea chose Bahay Aruga as the sole beneficiary for its #MomentsOfCompassion campaign this year.

A portion of sales from this line from October to December 2018 donated to Bahay Aruga. As it continues to celebrate its 10th anniversary in business, Serenitea will continue its mission to serve the best tea, coffee, and snacks in town, while giving back and improving the lives of others through charitable works.
