- Like ordinary babies, Zia Dantes also sometimes refuses to eat what Mommy Marian Rivera gives her
- But Marian has a fool-proof technique to make Zia eat good food
- The actress shares how she do it
Kapuso superstar Marian Rivera recently revealed how she teaches her daughter Zia Dantes how to finish eating her meals.
PEP reported that Marian established a reward system with her celebrity toddler.
"Hindi ako yung tipong nanay na very strict. Kapag nakapag-ubos ng pagkain, may reward siya sa akin," said Marian in a press conference attended by PEP.
The actress said Zia sometimes asks for juice or candy.
"Yes, definitely ibibigay ko yun, pero kailangan tapusin mo muna pagkain mo," said Marian.
She said the system has so far worked for them. Even though, Zia looks skinny, she is not weak.
"Yung anak ko medyo skinny, pero kapag binuhat mo mas mabigat pa yata sa akin," said Marian.
The superstar also said she makes sure to provide different food options for Zia. She added that she wants Zia to eat the food she wants.
"Minsan pinapamili ko siya. Minsan naman kasi ayaw niya naman, baka pinipilit ko. So ginagawa ko, binibigyan ko siya ng options. Siya ang mamimili kasi minsan ang bata pwede naman yan lambingin e," said Marian.
However, the options she gives her daughter are always healthy food.
"Kapag binigay mo isa lang, [tapos sabihin niya] 'ayoko'. Walang choice. Pero kapag binigay mo, 'O, may broccoli ka. May cauliflower ka. O, meron kang cereals. Anong gusto mo sa tatlo?'
"So, pinapakain mo pa rin, pero naikot mo do'n ayon sa nutrisyon na gusto mo ibigay sa kanya. So ayon, bigyan mo ng option. Saka huwag susuko," said Marian.
Marian gave birth to Maria Letizia, or Zia, on November 23, 2015.
Zia is her daughter with husband Dingdong Dantes.
Marian and Dingdong got married on December 30, 2014
