Healthy Child makes Happy Home

Every mother wants her kids to be healthy and protected. But when I look around myself, my 70 year old grandmother seems to be more healthier and active that the next generation kids. The pollution in the atmosphere has increased along with the amount of junk food in our diet.
Even for mothers who avoid junk and provide nutritious home made food to babies, the increased use of pesticides and genetic modification in fruits and vegetables has reduced the actual nutrition in food.
When I was a kid, I used to be very skinny and weak. I used to get tired easily and cough cold used to attack me with every changing season. I was the only one in the household who used to bend her nose at the name of green leafy vegetables and ran when milk was offered. Obviously my immunity suffered and I was on antibiotics for some or the other infection. My parents worried for me, my class teachers used to scold me for being absent and my family doctor had tried all doses of medicines and multivitamins.

Then someone suggested my mom to give me Dabur Chyawanprash, which is known to boost immunity 3 times. It has ayurvedic ingredients and an age-old formulation has a number of herbs like Amla, known to be one of the best antioxidants, Giloy (Guduchi), known to have immuno-modulatory properties, and more than 40 other natural ingredients. My mother started giving me Dabur Chyawanprash every morning and evening one spoon. The taste was kind of sweet and strong, so I liked having it. I realized that I was feeling more energetic day by day.
It was my dream to be selected in NCC at school but never thought I would make it ever. But soon I thought that I could materialize my dreams. The trips to the family doctor reduced and I used to attend school every day. My parents were happy, when they saw me participating in sports day events.

It is true that a happy child makes a happy home. Unhealthy kids are a concern for most parents and it seems the entire household is worried and sad when kids are not happy. When kids don't fall ill, they attend school more regularly, their grades start improving and they hop around the house happily. This satisfies parents, grandparents and home turns into a happy place to be.

When I go to the society children's park, I notice so many kids have specs at such a young age, and are afraid to play in the sand like we used to do in our childhood. There was a kid whose mother was running behind him with food. His mother said he doesn't eat home made food but loves french fries and burger. That is the major reason his nutrition suffers and he falls sick very often. I suggested her Dabur Chyawanprash, which had proved useful during my childhood 20 years back. It is a time-tested formula which has been used by so many parents for so many generations.
I hope she follows my suggestion and gets her happy home :)
