  • One challenge parents of toddlers usually face is having a picky eater. This is a stage when kids usually explore different tastes, but could also be a time when they insist on eating only food they are familiar with and refuse anything else, especially vegetables.

    This isn’t the case for Pokwang and her almost-two-year-old daughter Malia. On Instagram, the comedienne frequently posts videos of her toddler eating home-cooked meals heartily. She loves rice and soup and paksiw na isda, and likes munching on vegetables, too.

    “Grabe sya kumain di ba???? Tinola with malunggay hahahahaa pa beautiful eyes pa e..... dedma pa sa luya!! Ito talaga ang totoong batang may laban at ganakid hahaahaha bawal sa kanya mapili sa food,” Pokwang captioned one video.

    “Pambihira si tisay @malia_obrian hahahaaa kahit yata 3x a day na paksiw pak na pak pa rin sa kanya ang sarap hahahahaa bago nyang paborito ang paksiw na isda!!” Amazing! We’ve never heard of a toddler whose favorite food is paksiw na isda!

    “Maaga ako natapos sa presscon for @regasco.ph at nakapagluto ng dinner ni #tisayngmasa @malia_obrian thank God isa na sa paborito nya ang ampalaya with egg.... Yeheeeyyyy very good,” she captioned a video of Malia using her hands to eat rice and bitter gourd with egg.

    Pokwang shared a tip for those who want their kids to eat well: setting a good example is key. 

    “Flex ko lang mga kasambahay ko ha... Wow nakiki flex!! Malaki pasasalamat ko sa kanila lalo na kay yaya Gina kasi sila nakatuang ko sa pagpapakain kay Malia ng mga gulay.

    "Salamat at napapaligiran ako ng mga taong pare pareho kaming naniniwala sa simpleng pagkain at masayang kainan. Kumakain sya ng malunggay, kalabasa, ampalaya at okra yeheeeyy sitaw at talong na lang buo na ang pinakbet!! Tapos kanta ka anak ng bahay kubo hahahhaa VERY GOOD MY LOVE,” she wrote as caption for a video of Malia enjoying a piece of okra.

    More than this, Pokwang emphasizes that the reason they eat with their helpers is to teach Malia the value of humility

    “Good morning..... sa mga nagtatanong ano daw sikreto namin bakit magana kumain si #tisayngmasa @malia_obrian ang sagot ko ay, HUMILITY! Mas magana sya kumain kapag marami sya kasabay lalo na mga kasambahay ko po.”

    She says the first lesson a parent should instill in her child is good human relations — and we agree!

    “Ang table manners madaling matutunan yan lalo na kapag nasa wastong pag iisip na sya, pero ang pakikipagkapwa tao dapat mas maagang tinuturo.”
