Make Your Child Say ‘YesMom’With ActivKids Immuno Booster
According to a study, it is said that a mother says no to her child for around 400 times in a day!!
Too many ‘Nos’ a day lead to a full stop in building child’s imagination skills and this will affect the kid’s personality in a negative manner. I have been a helicopter mom and I know what this means. I realised I was indulging so much in my kids lives that they were not getting time to experiment and learn life in their own way. A lot of us make this mistake. Can we be there for them all our lives? Breaking their fall each time? No, right? The reality struck me one day and stepped back to let them learn to fend for themselves.
I have also undertaken the #YesMom Challenge and have started handling the situations in a subtle manner. There have been no direct ‘Nos’ but if there was something I didn’t agree on, we talked about it reached an agreeable conclusion. When it comes to food I have strict rules so how did I tackle my ‘Nos’ there? Read on.
While I was still struggling to tackle the food balance, I was made aware of this newly launched Immuno Boosters by Cipla. Being a mommy blogger, I was called to their launch event to understand the product. At the event, Celebrity host and actor Mandira Bedi accompanied by her 6 year old son Vir, participated in panel discussion with Nutritionist Dr. Niti Desai, Paediatrician Dr. Deepa Bhandarkar, along with Psychologist Dr. Sapna Zarwal to discuss the importance of immunity in children, how to strengthen a child’s immune system and how that can help moms say ‘Yes’ to their kids more often. Now that’s a panel I was looking for to help me tackle my issues.
Mandira Bedi shared an interesting anecdote from her life. She was once participating in a marathon and every age group was allowed to run, her son too joined in. She did not stop him from having fun during the run, she only elaborated to him to run at the speed at which she was running, or else he will get tired very easily. And this is how she discovered that he could run for 2 kms and she found herself a new running partner! By allowing your kids to set their minds free and having an open perspective along with some basic restrictions you can become a ‘YesMom’.
Some myths were also shattered during the event
It is always said that the longer you breastfeed the stronger the baby turns out to be, but this is not the truth. The truth is that the kids will have a good immune system only when they will be fed with food items which consist proper amount of vitamins, proteins, minerals and so on. Every mother in this world is always under the same pressure of what to make their kids eat so as to give them a healthy diet and to keep them fit as well with a concern of how to build ones child’s immune system stronger, and this is why Cipla has come up with a product named ActiveKids Immuno Boosters for kids between the age group of 4-12 years. It is a unique nutritional supplement for kids that help build immunity and is available in a choco-bite format and gives up to 100 % (Recommended Dietary Allowance) of key immunity nutrients – Vitamin A, Vitamin B9, Vitamin C, and Iron. 1 choco-bite daily provides kids with the key nutrients and helps build their immunity.
We discovered that fever is an indication that the kid’s immune system is perfectly active and working and their body is fighting against the germs!
It’s ok to replace the morning glass of milk with a fruit smoothie, cheese or yoghurt if your child doesn’t like it. These will still give your child the required protein and other nutrition- Nutritionist, Niti Desai.
Shocking Facts were revealed
80% Indian kids do not get the RDA requirement of nutrients like Iron, Vitamin C, Vitamin A. Also, many micronutrients are missed as kids mostly do not eat nutrient-rich food like green leafy vegetables, carrots, beans and others.
Kids in cities end up consuming Junk food 100 days in a year (Wow!). I am already marking my calendar now on the days my kids are allowed junk food.
How Does Immuno Booster help?
When you can’t convince them, join them and Immuno Booster helps bridge that gap.
Our kids are exposed to pollution and kids do not indulge in physical exercises which are the factors that can lead to a low immunity level in a child’s body. A healthy immune system helps the body to defend itself from diseases or potentially damaging foreign bodies. Supplements like ActivKids Immuno Booster helps give the child a much-needed immunity boost. It’s tasty, comes in a friendly form of a chocolate and is easy to consume. As a mom, if you are asking your child to consume a chocolate over some medicinal looking supplement we can all guess what the child will choose.
As a child, I was a fussy eater too. In fact, the only vegetable I ate without any fuss was potato, yet, today I avoid them and am very experimental when it comes to food. I love my fruits and vegetables today, even the ones that I did not consume. So sometimes your palette develops later and we need to let our kids develop their own choices too. Immuno Booster takes away the worry of them missing the essential nutrients while they are on their journey of discovery. I am not saying let them have junk food but we can ease out the food plate a little and you will hear your child saying ‘Yes Mom’ to you.
