I love routine. It makes things a lot smoother for me as a mum to my twins. Honestly, when they have the school sessions on, everything falls in place, everything runs as per schedule. From waking up, to eating a nutritious breakfast, home-made food packed for lunch and snacks…you get the drift? Everything has a routine. If you are looking for amazing summer food for your kids, read on!
Come, summer and the holidays, my woes begin…when there is no routine in my life. The boys start with sessions of chess, swimming, football and cricket with their friends as soon as they can. The whole day is filled with fun and play. I struggle with getting the boys to eat a decent meal before they head out for their games. They are so concerned with the fear of missing out that they are perfectly alright to miss the food but not miss the fun!
Pediasure Cookies and Cream – Amazing summer food for your kids
When I recently attended the event that unveiled the latest flavor, Cookies and Cream by Pediasure, I was a bit apprehensive on how it would taste. Don’t we as moms restrict the intake of cookies and cream because it isn’t really healthy right? But to my surprise, my boys not only loved the new flavor of Cookies and Cream by Pediasure, but also chose to drink milk twice a day because it was so delicious and yummy. I do sneak in a spoon or two in the regular milk shakes as well to give it that additional flavor! And yes I had my saviour for those days when the boys wanted to just head out and play!
The launch of Pediasure’s Cookies and Cream flavor by Abbott was attended by the celebrity couple Lara Dutta and Mahesh Bhupathi. It was also attended by the well-known nutritionist – Dr Indu Khosla and dietician –Dr Eileen Canday. The launch highlighted the struggles of parents ensuring a good meal for the kids in summer holidays. Adding to the fun was the young celebrity Chef Kicha, all of 7 years old who whipped up some yummy recipes using Cookies & Cream by Pediasure.
Lara Dutta and her talented tennis player and husband Mahesh Bhupathi shared their experience about bringing up their 6 year old daughter Saira and how as a mum she faced the issue of whipping up an interesting meal for her especially in the summer holidays.
Pediasure Cookies and Cream – Is it packed with nutrition?
Just as I was thinking, “Does Pediasure have nutritional value?” one of the panelists answered a yes. PediaSure contains 37 nutrients which help support height and weight gain, and immunity and brain development. And the parents at the launch agreed that having a health drink that takes care of the basic nutrition any growing child needs, makes us a lot happier! As a mum I would think that this is an excellent supplement that my boys should consume apart from the daily food and nutrition they need. After all it is their #timetogrow!
If you are a parent (like me!) who is struggling with summer vacation and fun taking the centrestage combined with loads of junk food that you would actually not approve of, opt for two servings of Cookies and Cream by Pediasure to support the nutritional requirements every growing child needs.
Yes, the struggle is real to ensure that they get the right nutritional requirements, eat healthy food and eat at regular intervals, but a tweak or two will ensure that the summer fun does not lose its zest!
The boys, coffee, books, music and ME TIME are my modes of relaxation!
