I'm an office worker mom, 66 kms away and would only see my children every friday night until monday morning. They are left with their father who can't also monitor well with what they are buying from sari sari stores because he is also busy with our pumpboats and they are left at the care of their grandparents who spoiled them by simply giving them money to buy... Now my daughter is really thin as she eats a little food.. What shall I do with them?

I agree w/ Jodi. If they are basically being in full time care of their grandparents... the grandparents need to respect your wishes for your children 100% or they need to be in the care of someone else. You can't just parent on the weekends and expect it to stick during the week when the other caregivers sabotage it.

This is where you have to put your foot down or find other carers for your children. Perhaps sit down and talk to the childrens' grandparents about your concerns, and let them know where you stand as a parent. If they can't respect your wishes on this, find another carer.

Alternatively, you and their father have to alter your arrangements so you can better supervise your children.
