Hidden Hunger: The Specter of Micronutrient Deficiency in Infants

Children are the future of our planet –the ones who will eventually contribute to significant socio-economic growth, and shape the world around us. That is a one of the biggestresponsibilities which they are entrusted with.Surely,they need strong shoulders and sharp brains for that, don’t you agree? Therefore, it is indispensable for a baby to be fed with the right food, considering all the nutritional needs that are important for proper growth of infants.
Issues faced in the meeting nutritional needs of a newborn
While feeding a newborn,numerous factors need to be taken care of, because the initial years are the building blocks for a newborn baby’s good physical and mental health.

Pet Taxis & Pet Ambulance: Home4Pet

Image
The joy on my dog’s face when we ride him in our car every evening is unmatchable. Apart from this precious emotion, it is always healthy to keep our pets aware of the environment outside the home.  They should learn how to cherish travels with a glow in the eye. It not only makes them active but also keeps them in a great state of well-being.


However, our availability is not always assured and the pets end up compromising. 
Home4pet has brought about travel plans for dogs. These plans have been formulated keeping in mind the over-all requirements of your pets. 
There are mainly 2 travel plans:
Woofy Cabs (full day travel plan) Woofy cabs are driven by pet friendly cab drivers who make sure the pet has a great time.

Beat the heat with Chili - Caliente

Image
People across Sweden and other places have been looking for a beverage option that gives you the exact kick that an alcohol drink does, but without the alcohol.

A swede who used to attend a lot of dinners and parties including a laughter riot, food, fruits, loads of sugary and caffeinated drinks along with alcohol made this possible.
He thought that a chili based drink would do the needful. Not filled with anything that harms the humans, something that the human is already familiar with; CHILI.

The only challenge was to infuse the chili with the drinks to make it globally acceptable to the consumers who don't even know that they need a drink like that.

He was encouraged enough to quit his current job, and start working on this innovation.
Made from the bests, hot enough to ensure a strong release of Endorphins which creates a sense of happiness or 'happy buzz'; maintain the sanity and clarity of mind at the same time!

NO alcohol, ONLY chili,
Caliente comes to India.

Eye on Content: CMS Asia 2017

Image
Content, as we all know these days can't really be summarized.
'Content is the reason search began in the first place.'

Content is of the utmost value in everything you do, how ever way you wish to take your business or brand forward, a good content is something that you need to build a strong kingdom!
Now, some might argue that content is the whole kingdom, TRUE.
Content would always change shapes but a good content would always be needed, to grow, establish, make a mark, or to basically sell.



I recently attended the biggest content summit of all times,
Content Marketing Summit Asia 2017 held on 4th and 5th May in The Westin, Gurgaon!
I was there only for one day, but believe me, it got better with each speaker.
Some of the greatest minds, famous brands, and influencers who took over the social media by storm were present at the summit to impart knowledge, do's and dont's, and share their life experiences.



My first session was from FMS Faculty (Marketing), Mr. Hars…

Attraction for kids in fair: Hand Washing

Image
Dettol, a prominent name in germ protection has been giving its 100% to safeguard the health of families all around the globe for a better lifestyle.

Not only by providing top class products and a high success rate, they are also known for their out of the box ideas which tends to connect with masses.

They have come up with another initiative which has a very simple yet deep objective, making kids wash their hands at places such as fairs!
It was identified that kids who are playing around the fairs pick up a lot of gems which they carry with themselves the whole day, may also use the dirty hands to eat.


To counter this issue, they chose an activity where they would make the wash happen in a fun way, I like to call it: Bubble Wash!

Dettol created a soapy solution with the power of Dettol Handwash. This solvent would be blown and when the kids would burst these bubbles, the soapy solution will stick to their hands. The dettol volunteers would then help them wash their hands!

This germ …

Clocktower, Gurgaon - Another Favorite!

Image
The Clock Tower is one of the many microbreweries based out of Golf Course Road.
What separates it from the rest of the lot is its history that goes long back to a school in Nainital which goes by the name of Sherwood which was set up in 1869.

Tribhuvan Yadav took all his inspiration from his time in Sherwood College and put his heart out in The Clock Tower.
He came up with this name to symbolize all the clock towers that Nainital has!


Every corner of The Clock Tower would remind you of the good old days!
Starting from the basic structures like high ceilings, and big doors which give the exact European feels that they intend to convey, looks no less than a high end palace property.

Each wall has a good old memory waiting for you to reminisce;
Be it comics like Archies, Adventures of Tin Tin, Malgudi Days, or souvenirs from different neighboring schools like Doon School.



This place became my instant favorite when I have had a whole tour of the property,
all I hoped was that the food …
