It’s not uncommon to see children put up their noses at the food on the dining table,leaving mothers suitably stressed. “Chronic micronutrient deficiency can lead to problems like stunted growth,cognitive disability and poor immunity,” asserted city-based pediatrician Dr Gaurav Gupta as he addressed “worried” mums battling poor eaters (read children who fuss over food) at home. Dr Gupta along with Dr Archana,a senior research scientist with The Himalaya Drug Company and Park Plaza Chandigarh’s chef Nitin Ranjan came together for an interactive session that sought to address the issues of fussy eating.

A group of 40 mothers were updated about special diet plans and the role of Indian ayurvedic herbs that should be included in childrens’ diet like maricha (black pepper),mandukaparni (centella) and amalaki (Indian gooseberry) along with a session by chef Ranjan who demonstrated how to fix quick meals that were not only nutritious,but lip-smacking too.
