DUTCH Lady Nutri Plan with 5X DHA held a gathering to highlight the importance of complementing nutrition to support the overall development of children.
The session was attended by TV host and actress Scha Alyahya and paediatric consultant Dr Yong Junina Fadzil who elaborated on a parent’s role in bringing up healthy children aged between one and six years old.
Titled “Dutch Lady & Mom, Step by Step Together”, the event highlighted through interactive activities, how mothers can correspond their guidance to the various developmental milestones and nutritional needs of their children to help them optimise children’s learning and development.
Speaking to the media and mothers at the event, Dutch Lady Malaysia marketing director Ashlee Ng said: “Dutch Lady 4-Step Nutri Plan with 5X DHA is a nutrition programme for children aged one to six years that continuously supports a child’s developmental milestones and learning.
“When nutritional needs are well taken care of, mothers can focus on guiding their children to achieve foundation milestones that will help shape their future development and learning achievements at school, in the family and life in general.
Dr Yong Junina advised mothers to spend time interacting with their children. “Besides providing the appropriate nutrition for the various stages of development, your child also needs positive interaction with you beyond the basic daily routine.
“Listen to a curious child when he asks questions and respond to them by asking him what he thinks.
“Discover the world with your explorative child and learn about things in his world, even if it means more physical activity.
“Start an art project at home to help your creative child express more. No child is naturally good at school work, get in there and guide him as much as you can.
“Positive interaction with your child allows you to bond, helps her feel secure and supports her overall development.
Scha, who spends most of her time off-work with her two-year-old daughter Lara, could not agree more with Dr Yong Junina.
Besides giving her daughter, Lara, Dutch Lady Nutri Plan Curious, Scha also ensures she is with Lara whenever she can to guide her learning as she grows.
“Lara’s nutritional needs are important to me and I am glad that Dutch Lady Nutri Plan with 5X DHA has the necessary nutrients to support her progressive development and a total programme to follow through till she is at formal schooling age, which leaves me the time and energy to focus on her other developmental needs,” said Scha.
