A mother always wants the best kind of nutrition for her child. The present day and age makes the task tougher despite an availability of rows and rows of products promising nutrition in various forms. How does she zero in on something that ensures the best, tailor-made meal for her child?

While values of a wholesome breakfast are well known, and time and again the importance of the ‘most important meal of the day’ is reminded to kids by mums, it is still a struggle for mothers to get their kids to enjoy the breakfast process, with huge instances of dislike towards milk! And then for snacks there is junk food and a tantalizing desire to grab that burger and a soft drink.

Time, of course, has a crucial role to play and in between waking up, getting ready for school and getting back home after a long day is draining for a school going child – of every age. A mother indeed has a tough life figuring a daily healthy, tasty nutrition format in a short span that comes packed with the goodness of fruits, vegetables, pulses and minerals. Getting a kid to consume all of that can be safely concluded to be not an easy task.

Vitamins are essential organic nutrients, most of which are not made in the body or only in insufficient amounts, and are mainly obtained through food.

    Do fathers not worry about their child's nutrition? Or are they absolved from parental responsibility by virtue of being male, even though, these children bear their fathers' names.

          Vitamins are the biggest hoax of the food world. It has been demonstrated again and again that the vitamins were the creation of crazy science when there were no instruments to measure anything. no knowledge of antibiotics etc etc. But the vitamin manufacturers stepped in and built a multi-billion dollar industry. This is despite many studies showing that the human (/animal) bodies reject all artificially created/ingested vitamins. Eat plain vegetables and do some basic exercise to remain healthy.
