One of the highlights of the Mom and Baby Expo 2017 will be a series of talks from perinatal experts pertaining to maternal-fetal and newborn topics.
Some of the topics to be discussed during the event are tips on how to get pregnant; vaccines needed for expecting moms as well as their babies; exercise and proper nutrition for a healthy pregnancy; preconception tests and Breastfeeding Pearls Exercise. Other topics include skin care protection for women who are conceiving; importance of prenatals; and ways to safeguard against diseases like vaginal infection, UTI and STDs.
PAP President Dra. Belen Velasco notes the relevance of taking time to listen to the experts during the talks. She explains: “Our objective is simple yet powerful: to impart advices and traverse new ideas moms and expectant moms can use that will ultimately strengthen their maternal bond with their babies”.

For his part, PAP President Dr. Diosdado Mariano says “The Expo is an opportunity to analyze and seek solutions to existing issues pertaining to maternal-fetal and newborn areas in an engaging and fun way.”

Event: Minola Premium Cooking Oil

I was recently invited to join the forum for Minola Premium Cooking Oil, I was very happy to be a part of it because I learned many new things. The Speaker was Dr. Fabian M. Dayrit, a professor chemist of Ateneo de Manila University, Acting-President of National Academy of Science and Technology. The blogger's forum was held at The Oracle Hotel and Residences in Katipunan, Quezon City.

Coconut oil, or copra oil, is an edible oil extracted from the kernel or meat of mature coconuts harvested from the coconut palm (Cocos nucifera). It has various applications. Because of its high saturated fat content, it is slow to oxidize and, thus, resistant to rancidification, lasting up to six months at 24 °C (75 °F) without spoiling.

Due to its high levels of saturated fat, the World Health Organization, United States Food and Drug Administration, International College of Nutrition, the United States Department of Health and Human Services, American Dietetic Association, American Heart Association, British National Health Service, British Nutrition Foundation and Dietitians of Canada advise against regular consumption of coconut oil.


The Speaker Dr. Fabian M. Dayrit discussed the Health benefits of using different types of oil and why he does'nt recommend re-using oil which I believe most people do. He said that it adds harm to the people eating the food, so No no na ang pag reuse ng oil. 

The discussion was an eye opener for everyone mostly moms who frequently cooks for their children. Thank you Dr. Dayrit for this wonderful talk! You gave us more knowledge about the different uses and health benefits of oils.
