Mother Nurture: Choco and Coffee Mixes in PH for Breastfeeding Moms

Mother Nurture introduces the first-ever lactation Choco and Coffee mixes in the Philippine for breastfeeding moms. Available in Chocolate and Coffee mixes, the pro-breastfeeding brand has been nurturing Filipino mothers and championing the cause of breastfeeding through their online (FB) stores and resellers.


Lan San Juan-Perez, the woman behind Mother Nurture products, became aware of the challenges in breastfeeding of many Filipino women. After successfully re-lactating to breastfeed her second child, she became an ardent advocate. Lan firmly believes in the many benefits of breastfeeding.


“Breast milk is the perfect food to give to an infant. It has all the necessary nutrients that they need for immunity and to protect them from common infections.  Breastfed babies are shown to have higher IQ, language ability, visual-motor abilities, emotional and intellectual developments. All these things will benefit children later in life,” Lan explains.

While on her breastfeeding journey, Lan noticed that there were very few local products specifically formulated and deemed safe for pregnant and lactating mothers. This is especially true for Coffee drinks. Although there was Malunggay Coffee available, the labels usually caution pregnant and lactating mothers against drinking them because of the caffeine content.

This encouraged Lan to formulate, develop, and market what we now know today as Mother Nurture products. She believes that Filipino women like herself should be able enjoy luscious chocolate and coffee drinks that are safe for pregnant and breastfeeding mothers. Lan also added that since breastfeeding women are more careful about the food and drinks they take, they usually miss drinking coffee. Coffee contains caffeine which may cause fussiness in breastfed babies.

Lan’s search for breastfeeding friendly products led her to create her own brand of drink mixtures with carefully selected and locally-sourced ingredients. The Mother Nurture 7in1 Chocomix and 7in1 Coffeemix are packed with breast milk production booster or galactogogues such as Calcium Lactate, Malunggay power and Ashitaba. It also has Gotu Kola, a herb that helps relieve mental fatigue and boost blood circulation. Both products are sweetened with Stevia, a healthy sugar substitute that helps in insulin secretion and is a known antioxidant.




These unique ingredients make Mother Nurture products not only safe for pregnant and breastfeeding moms. It is also safe for diabetics, hypertensive, acidic and even kids. They are also Halal certified.

Nursing moms are often and tired and hungry. Breastfeeding burns as much as 500-calories, thus it’s no wonder moms have a voracious appetite. Because of their amazing sacrifice for giving birth and nursing mothers deserve as much pampering as possible.

Not diverting from the need to stay healthy, breastfeeding moms need to eat as much healthy and nutritious food to sustain their milk production and energy. As a breastfeeding mom, one should be more aware of the food they take and the possible effect these foods have for their nursing child. The Philippines is abundant in Moringa or Malunggay which is a known milk booster and the main ingredient in Mother Nurture Drink Mixes. 

Mother Nurture products are made by a mom for moms. Lan Perez stressed that many Filipino women are struggling to balance having a job and taking care of their families. Those who choose to stay home to focus on their family may still find ways to earn and become mompreneur like herself. She opened her products for online sellers. She currently has more than 150 partner reseller stores, fellow breastfeeding moms and advocates nationwide.

Through her products, she is not only helping fellow mothers enjoy a wonderful breastfeeding journey. She is also empowering women by giving them a chance to earn while taking care of their babies full time. After five years of online entrepreneurship, Mother Nurture is now officially launching products after earning the approval of the FDA.

Mother Nurture Drink Mixes are a delicious and nutritious way to boost breast milk production. 
 
Despite continuous advocacy and information dissemination on the benefits of breastfeeding, Filipino mothers have yet to fully understand and appreciate the wonderful benefits of exclusively breastfeeding their babies.




The 2014 State of the World’s Children report from UNICEF showed that only 34% of Filipino infants 6 months and below were exclusively breastfed. And only 34% of this number continues getting breast milk for two years. Most Filipino mothers choose to provide milk formula for different reasons. Some claimed to be unable to produ

Heads Together By Head & Shoulders

#HeadsTogether means removing barriers so people can be closer together
Head and Shoulders helps to remove barriers so people can put their #HeadsTogether





In a world that was taught to despise crowded spaces, Head and Shoulders encourages people to find the beauty in it.

Caption: To know more about Head  Shoulders’ #HeadsTogether Campaign watch the video here and join the conversations online how you break barriers like dandruff:
#HeadsTogether made its online debut this month with a tug-at-heartstring video content; an eye-opener on what most people fail to see when they’re caught up inside crowded spaces: the birth of beautiful friendships, a helping hand from a complete stranger, the comfort of warm smiles in unexpected situations. This campaign is a reminder to continue to see the good in the bad, and that the only way this can happen, is when we start to remove the barriers between two people.

Head and Shoulders inspires Filipinos to put their #HeadsTogether
As dandruff remains to be a main hair and scalp problem of Filipinos, exposure to crowded spaces with hot, humid weather makes scalp oilier[BR4] and greasy-looking, and oily scalps tend to be more susceptible to dandruff[BR5]. 
Dandruff prevents people from getting closer together. It’s an unspoken wall coming from a personal discomfort, and Head and Shoulders aims to break this barrier to inspire more people to put their #HeadsTogether.
Head and Shoulders believes in a dandruff-free world; a world without the barriers of flakes and scalp odor. The world’s no. 1 shampoo celebrates closeness and inclusivity, as it inspires to build better and stronger relationships with others. So, no matter how crowded the world is – we are not afraid to be a part of it.



Dandruff-free World

About 50% of the population is prone to experience dandruff and over decades, Head and Shoulders is proven to provide cutting-edge technology and innovative products to address the world’s cry against dandruff. Clinically tested over 200 times, Head and Shoulders is the most tested and trusted anti-dandruff shampoo in the market.

Healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp and having a healthy and dandruff-free scalp could go a long way - for it does not only give you self-confidence, but that peace of mind wherever you go.

Let Head and Shoulders be your best ally to be more confident to make new friends, ace that first day at your new job, or even just hang out with old friends. 

With the world’s no. 1 shampoo, it’s time to put our #HeadsTogether towards a dandruff-free world.
