  • Just like any mom, Dimples Romana worries a lot about her children's health. The actress and her husband Boyet Ahmee has three: Callie, 18; Alonzo, 7; and Elio, almost 5 months old.

    Dimples is especially worried about Alonzo, who has recently returned to face-to-face classes in school and also plays hockey as a hobby (read here). She then makes it a point that her son brings his own hygiene kit whether he goes to school or to do sports.

    For school, Alonzo's hygiene kit usually includes a small bottle of alcohol and sanitizer, a pack of wipes and tissues, and extra face masks. If he's going to his hockey training, he'll also bring some adhesive bandages.

    Dimples has tips for parents to make their children bring their own hygiene kits: "I’d say for every parent, you should be able to make sure that the hygiene kits of your children they want to bring. Kasi minsan we think it’s cool for us."


    How? "Gawin nating mas cool at mas fun ang kanilang hygiene kit. I’d say, involve them. Ask them, ‘What do you need for your hygiene kit?’ Kasi alam na naman ng mga bata. I sense that children now are smarter. They’ve become more intuitive, mas involved na sila."

    She points out, "Pag sila ang naglagay sa hygiene kit, dadalhin nila. Pag ikaw kasi ang naglagay, it just becomes something else in their bag, along with other things. But if they prepare it themselves and you involve them in the process, then they make sure they use everything in that hygiene kit."

    Dimples also makes it a point that she, Alonzo, and the rest of the family take their annual flu shots.

    "Kapag nagpapa-vaccine kaming buong pamilya," she says at the event organized by the pharmaceutical company GSK Philippines to highlight the importance of flu vaccine.

    "It doesn’t only protect us from the diseases, it gives me my mama mind, which doesn’t stop from worrying, peace of mind. Kapag nagpa-vaccine ka, hindi lang ’yung sakit ng inaalala mo, pati ‘yung paga-alala naiiwasan mo."

    Dimples confesses that she's a lot about the flu vaccine: "Akala ko before pag vaccinated ka na, good for five years na. Every year pala. Nagmu-mutate ang virus, kaya iba-ibang vaccine ang nilalabas."

    She adds, "You can never get too protected. Walang gano’n. Especially now may baby kami...si Elio. Ang problema kasi sa flu, magkasakit ang isa, hawa-hawa na kayo. So, you know what, you really have to look out for one another. The best is for us to get vaccinated."


    Dimples also makes it a point that the whole family follow a healthy diet at home. They also exercise together and take their vitamins.
