Actress Marian Rivera and daughter Zia Dantes were an image of a beautiful bond, literally and figuratively, unfolding before our very eyes when they were introduced as celebrity ambassadors of a popular milk brand.
Arriving in matching a yellow checkered dress, everyone in the room just gushed, “So beautiful, the mother and her mini-me.” And we couldn’t take our eyes off Marian who’s looking radiant and very pregnant and her daughter who simply impressed everyone for being adorable and smart for her age.
The event wasn’t just about the mother-daughter tandem looking so beautiful and smiling before the cameras though. The actress talked about parenting styles and children nutrition, while the three-year-old Zia led the unveiling of a TVC for the brand.
The event also highlighted how parents wanting the best for their children remain constant in a world where parenting styles evolve with the changing times.
“No matter what kind of parenting a mom or dad espouses, no one can question that at the heart of it all is putting their child’s well-being first, especially during their crucial growing-up years,” a speaker during the event shared.
The same can be said about Marian who has confidently embraced three-year-old daughter Zia’s entry into toddlerhood thanks to her chosen partner for age-appropriate nutrition, Nido Advanced Protectus 3+.
The toddler years are fundamental in shaping the young lives of children, and it is during this stage of their development when going on adventures, exploring the outdoors, and meeting new people become vital. While it is normal for parents to say “no” to their kids out of concern for their health and safety, it must be considered that it is by saying “yes” to these activities that important strides in their cognitive, socio-emotional, and physical development are met.
“It is during this stage that they start to learn things on their own, develop relationships outside the family unit, and discover for themselves who they are as their own person, so they need their parent’s full support now more than ever,” said Dr. Josephine Yuson Sunga, Pediatrician and Medical Director of NESTLÉ Infant Nutrition Philippines.
For Marian, it’s not easy for her to let Zia do things on her own, but she believes that it’s better for her child to learn at an early age.
“Mas marami siyang matututunan, not just about the world around her but also about herself. That’s the reason why I looked for a pre-school milk that could match Zia’s energy and curiosity. Ngayon, mas kampante na ako na hayaan siyanglumabas at makipaglaro sa ibang mga bata dahil alam kong she is protected while getting the other important nutrients she needs for her age,” she revealed.
