Five Days to Go ’til Christmas!

Healthy Way to Satisfy Hunger and Food Cravings of Pregnant Women

I understand the feeling… I’ve been there!!!

 

When you’re pregnant, you tend to crave for MORE food. It’s actually normal to crave during that time, but what if you can’t stop craving for… JUNK FOODS?!

 

Eating junk foods while pregnant should be a MAJOR thing because you ALWAYS have to consider your health as well as the growing baby inside you. Disregarding it could lead to the following:

  • swollen feet (pagmamanas)
  • crazy blood pressure results
  • constipation
  • less nutrient intake (because you become already full after eating junk foods and then you won’t eat healthy foods anymore)
  • health disorders for the baby
  • gestational diabetes

 

But now, there’s a great news for mom-to-be out there! Unilab has come up with CRAVE HEALTHY!

Dapat lang we make dad feel loved on Father’s Day!

 

He is a provider, a hero, and a friend all wrapped into one—he is dad. And there’s no better time to show our dads how much we appreciate them for being the pillar of the family than on a day specially dedicated to all the fathers out there.

Be Thankful to Your Mom

Moms are the BEST among the creations of God. She’s a superwoman.

I did not mind much about her existence until I became an adult, until I became a mom too. My mom is a woman like no other. She gave me life, nurtured me, held me, taught me, dressed me, fought for me, but most importantly, she loved me unconditionally. She’s not rich but we’ve never had food in our mouth, clothes to wear and shoes on our feet. My siblings and I are really blessed and thankful for her. There are not enough words I can say to describe just how important my mother is to me, and what a powerful influence she continues  to be.

We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude. Let’s at least make our moms feel how thankful we are to have her on Mother’s Day. Treat her out for a dinner, watch a movie together, surprise her with a gift or give her a card/letter and express your thoughts and love for her.

Happy Mother’s Day to your mom!

AN OPEN (SHORT) LETTER FOR MY MOM:

I LOVE YOU, MOMMY!
