Exploring the Magical Sea world

I recently read a report on Live mint which revealed that the kid based youtube video channel ChuChu TV is the third largest YouTube channel in India with close to 5 million subscribers. It wasnt really a surprise as my 4 year old is also a chuchu TV addict and he loves watching youtube videos on my phone. The content on chuchu TV is actually very good making learning fun but what Iam concerned about is my toddlers eyes. He never seems to keep a good distance from mobile or laptop screen which is why I keep searching for innovative and creative ways to keep my 4 year old engaged. I have tried everything from toys to play dough and crayons but kids these days loose interest very easily so coming up with new creative ideas is essential. At a time like this exciting Magical Sea World Packs from colgate landed up on my doorstep making my kid happy.


What is so exciting about an outer pack of toothpaste, you ask? The Magical Sea World Packs are specially designed to help kids imagine and enjoy a world with a variety of magical sea creatures. The printed boxes are a delight and using a scissor me and my little one sat down to spend some fun time . It was a great way to spend some time with my child away from gadgets and TV screens. 

The Colgate magical sea world packs come in four interesting themes called Treasure Hunt, Pirate Ship, Coral Reefs and Magical Mermaid which have around 15 sea creatures which will fuel imagination of kids helping them weave in their own magical stories. I love the idea of using sea world characters with a hint of magic for children to narrate stories. I do indulge my toddler in fun bed time stories but rarely do these stories revolve around the sea world and this colgate doodles is a nice way to introduce my child to underwater world.

Diving into a magical world of coral reefs , pirate ships and Mermaid was a whole new experience for my kid and he enjoyed learning with the colgate packs. I was amazed at how much my child already knew about the sea world especially mermaids and how he could imagine a whole new perspective to some sea animals like sharks, turtles, ray and whale. My toddler being a boy I knew he would not be too interested in the magical mermaid pack and I assumed he would love the pirate ships pack but I was actually proven wrong. The boy was more interested in the Coral reefs pack and played with it all day even coming up with names for some of the sea creatures.





The sea creatures not only help in sparking of imagination of kids but they also make learning fun with interesting facts which are printed on the pack. The facts are actually super amazing and even I was not aware of most of them. While my 4 year old is still a wee bit too young to weave in full fledged stories but he has taken liking to sports recently and made teams out of the coral reef characters and was attempting wrestling with them . Sea horse against the lion fish in a Sultan inspired pro take down inside the coral reef, while the barracuda plays the role of commentator and sea turtle cheers enthusiastically. 

If you have kids and want to ignite their creative cells then I suggest you the all new Colgate Strong Teeth packs . These packs can be found at your nearest super market

PS: I was sent empty packs by colgate but I went ahead and brought more from heritage mall in my locality.

Tips to ensure children to catch up on lost growth

On our recent trip to Lucknow with my 3 year old I happened to meet my cousin sister who has a 6 year old boy. The boy was almost double the age of my son yet when both my son and him stood together you would say they are of same age. My cousins son was born in the 8th month because her pregnancy had complications and weighted just 2.5 kgs at birth. My cousin also mentioned that her son had fallen ill few months back adding to his pettie thin frame. My cousin also complained of him not eating properly and he especially refused healthy home cooked food and loved eating maggi !

My son on the other hand loves home cooked dal chawal and refuses to eat unhealthy food like pizzas, maggi etc. I consider myself very lucky as my son isnt a choosy or a picky eater and feeding him is a breeze, 15 minutes is all it takes and Iam done. This may sound like me flaunting away my son, but it is actually the truth . My son is well built but not fat in anyway. He is the fittest boy in my neighborhood and is super active seen running right out of the door to the streets if the door is left ajar even for 30 seconds!

Not eating properly means children dont get enough nutrition which can affect their growth and immunity. I also faced this problem while weaning my son away from bottle. He refused to drink milk from a glass and demanded the bottle especially while sleeping. In this age of non organic foods and unlimited diseases only food isnt enough to help children with physical and mental development. A glass of milk is very important to catch up on growth. My husband brought home a pack of Horlicks Growth+ which has 23 vital growth nutrients . My kid loved this and now doesnt skip milk in his breakfast ever.

Here are more tips to help kids catch up on lost growth 

# A good protien rich breakfast is important for kids to grow right and stay energetic all day. Give your child a non processed organic meal with a glass of milk. Add Horlicks Growth+ to milk to speed up the growing process. Horlicks groth plus is a specialized nutrition product children in age group of 3-9 years who are lagging behind in height and weight. It contains high quality whey protein with added nutrients that are known to enable children to catch up on lost growth. It has been clinically proven for visible growth in children in 6 month
# Lead by example. If you eat healthy even your kid will eat home cooked healthy food for life.
# Junk food is loved by all so dont ban them completely. Limit junk food to 2 days a week or once between 2 meals.
# Indulge your kid in healthy snacks like fruits, nuts and fresh fruit juices
# Get creative with food especially with salads. If vegetables look yummy even picky eaters will gobble them up
#Family meals are best way to get kids interested in eating. When the whole family gathers at the table to eat your child also will love eating watching others eat so make sure atleast one meal a day is a family meal.
# Indulge in healthy sugar free sweets . Try recipes at home and replace sugar with healthy alteratives like honey.
# Cook healthy, bake or grill instead of frying and use olive oil instead of other oil oils
#involve you kids in cooking or baking, this way they will be more eager to eat what has been cooked. You can even get your kids involved in organic gardening in your backyard.
