The country has been facing a rise in the number of underweight and overweight Filipinos for more than 20 years. The World Health Organization (WHO) defined this phenomenon as the “Double Burden of Malnutrition” or the “prevalence of both undernutrition and overweight in the same community, nation, or region.”
Two weeks ago, I got invited to attend the media launch of the new parenting lifestyle show, Mommy Manual. I didn’t know what to expect during the event because it was my first time to attend a launch representing just myself (and this blog) but I was really excited. So this must be how it feels like to be legit blogger. Insert shy emoticon here.
Mommy Manual is a weekly 30-minute parenting lifestyle show that will premiere this June 20 at 8:30AM on GMA News TV and on GMA Life TV. It can also be watched online through mommymanualonline.com. It is hosted by celebrity mommies Rica Peralejo-Bonifacio and Chesca Kramer. Mommy blogger and interior stylist Marilen Faustino-Montenegro will also join the show.
