What I most especially love about Arugaan is that they work within the needs and lifestyle of each family. Each Filipino family is different. In all the times that we have worked together, I have never felt obligated or guilty about the lifestyle that I chose to have for my family. I never felt pressured to become a vegetarian or give up certain products we use.

The wonders of the internet also allow peer counselors to reach more moms. Do visit and join the Facebook group "Breastfeeding Pinays" to know what I am talking about. While internet advice is definitely not a replacement for expert breastfeeding advice, it is a first step towards being steered towards the right information. I myself relied on internet information, videos in the early days of breastfeeding. With the aggressive marketing of milk companies though, it is important to make sure that you filter information and visit the right websites.
Arugaan is also well versed in young child feeding. Velvet has given a talk on "Feed your Child Right" and Nanay Ines continues to share her knowledge whenever she is given the opportunity. For those who are unable to attend one of their lectures, you can view their tips in the slide below.

Arugaan truly has a lot to share to the Filipino women and children and I look forward to working with them and learning from them in future projects.
