“Child developmental experts believe that the performing arts have a positive effect on children, such as developing confidence and discipline, and improving their language and social skills. This is why Dugrostar™ was created, so we can encourage children from an early age and provide them the opportunity to develop life-long skills and attitudes,” said Ms Connie Ang, Managing DirectorDirector, DanoneDumex Malaysia. “We also understand every parent’s pride in their children andwe are immensely glad that many parents took this chance to celebrate their child’s star quality and share it with the world.”
