The Magical World of Imagination

“The dust can only cover your memories for sometime but the feelings that lay beneath them remain the same, forever. It’s just that you have to brush the dust aside to get hold of the same feelings again.”…..PANORAMA

When I opened the pack of new Colgate strong teeth pack, I was immediately transported to the time when my niece was studying in the Kindergarten. She is now a lovely young lady but the incident happened when she was only 4 years old. The new Colgate Strong Teeth packs had some interesting images of sea creatures inside which the children can cut and play with. These tiny tools act as great learning material that help a child develop healthy brain inside a healthy body. And I must say Colgate has done an excellent job in putting forward some innovative ways to help children learn while having fun in addition to developing healthy strong teeth. Children are transformed into little architects when they create new play models with these pictures, and their laughter brings an immediate smile on your face.

It was another day after her school. My niece was playing in her room after taking lunch. I happened to be in the home as it was a holiday for me. Suddenly I saw her going toward the kitchen. I quietly followed her just to have a look at what was she up to. What followed after that filled me with utter surprise.

Importance of Regaining Lost Growth for Children

We all have grown up hearing and believing the proverb: “A healthy body in a healthy mind”.  It is extremely important to have a healthy physical and mental state and when we talk about kids, it is very important for every parent to ensure that their children have a normal growth. To attain this they need to take certain measures so that their children have a healthy body and a healthy mind. It is also said that “Your body is what you eat”, so the food that we give our kids to eat plays a vital role in their growth. Pediatricians say that the early years especially 3-9 years is a critical growth phase for children. But due to some reason like fussy eating habits, illness or some other possible reasons, inadequate growth may happen.

Sometimes, the daily meals are not sufficient for providing all the requisite nutrition and in case of children, it is all the more important because it is their growing stage. They need it for building healthy body cells. And it is the health drink that can provide this nutrition. I have always seen Horlicks in my home. I still remember when I used to go for giving an exam, my mother made this drink for me. A couple of Marie biscuits and a glass of Horlicks. That was all I would have before going for an examination. And believe me, it provided all the energy I needed to write my papers. I also loved its taste. Not only the drink but I would also eat it as it is. It was yummy. After so many years, I still pop a spoonful of Horlicks into my mouth while making the drink for me.
