Is it just me or is Myleene Klass, looking more beautiful as the years go on? Her advert for Littlewoods where she dons a bikini , just shows how amazing her figure is. In fact it rivals her iconic white bikini moment on I’m A Celebrity, four years, and more importantly two children, previously!

But it’s obvious that Klass isn’t one of those over-obsessed-with-their-looks celebrities, she sets a good healthy example for her children and the rest of us for that matter! Today might be hard for Klass as her divorce has been granted, but her handling of the situation with grace and dignity is a real credit to her.

Myleene told The Sun earlier this month:

People say these things make you stronger but… it’s not that I’m stronger. It’s more that I didn’t realise how strong I already was.’

Such wise words, and in a very real way a fresh chapter of her life begins today, and I for one am excited to see what the mother of two/ singer/pianist/presenter/model/author/all round business woman does next. It  seems she can turn her hand to anything, so who knows what the future will bring!

She is originally known as a singer and she has three solo albums to her name, Myleene Klass Moving On, Myleene’s Music For Romance, and Myleene’s Music For Mothers. She has also penned two books, one of which is already out called My Bump & Me, and her next book Things To Make And Do With Your Children  is available to pre-order now. (Click on the titles to go to amazon to buy them!)

She currently has a clothing line with Littlewoods, a lingerie line with Littlewoods and a swimwear line with Littlewoods. She also has a childrens shoe line with Startrite and a children’s clothing line called Baby K with Mothercare! I also really like her range of nail wraps especially the red ones with little hearts on! Buy them here! Is there any stopping this woman!

Klass works with a plethora of charities  including Save the Children, World Vision, Youth Music and Clic Sargent. Klass is an ambassador for Save the Children, she went to the Philppines to witness first hand the dire situation for children living out there.  Klass travelled to Manila, where her mum is from, to find out how breastfeeding is saving lives. She meets Vilma, who has had four babies, to hear about her experience of breastfeeding, and visits a clinic to find out what Save the Children is doing to help.

The breastfeeding project out there tries to get help for women, to enable them to breastfeed their baby within the first hour after birth. If this happened 95 lives PER HOUR would be saved! This is because malnutrition is the cause of a third of all child deaths. Breastfeeding is the natural way to boost a child’s nutrition and build their immunity. A shortage of health workers to encourage breastfeeding, and inappropriate tactics of some baby milk companies have contributed to the huge problem with mother’s being able to, or willing to, try it. These unethical tactics can lead mums with little education and no access to health care to become confused about what is best for their baby – or what they can afford.

Chief Executive of Save The Children, Justin Forsyth said:

“Despite the benefits of breastfeeding being widely known in the developed world, and it being a free, natural way to protect a newborn baby, too little attention is being paid to help mums breastfeed in poorer countries.”

It says on the Save The Children website:

In East Asia and the Pacific, the number of breastfeeding mothers has fallen from 45% in 2006 to 29% in 2012.Research by Save the Children in Asia found mothers who cited examples of marketing activity which violate the internationally agreed code for marketing of breast milk substitutes. In Mexico we found people giving their babies coffee. In other places butter.

They are calling on the two largest baby milk companies Nestlé and Danone to give over a third of their product packaging to warnings of the potential health risks of not breastfeeding. If this knowledge manages to reach these women who don’t understand the crucial importance of breastfeeding in their country, this could save countless lives!

Sign the petition to get these companies to help this situation!
