Our Story With ActivKids Immuno Booster
Everything has changed, yet we are more ourselves than we have ever been.
And that’s how the #YesMomChallenge has brought about a change in our relationship.
Fussy, falling sick with every change in weather and sluggish – all this defined my elder one just a few weeks back until I took the #YesMom Challenge and then discovered ActivKids Immuno Boosters at an event by Cipla.
The challenge was to not say ‘NO’ to my kids but rather handle the situation with a yes. It took some time but I learned how to be more patient and tackle it. Taking the #YesMomChallenge has been a very calming experience for me.
I am not flaring up at every wrong but tackling it more peacefully. Kids are finding this change very pleasant and they are obviously happier. In fact, they are paying more attention to what I ask them to do and agreeing to do it as well.
Today, I want to share my experience of using Immuno Boosters with my elder son. While I received a box from Cipla for age 7 plus age group, my younger one (6 years) has been found popping it in his mouth every now and then. It’s tasty so convincing the kids was not a problem. Who doesn’t love chocolates?
Eeshan has been consuming ActivKids Immuno Boosters for almost a month now and while he loves the taste, there are mild changes that I have been noticing. I had told you that I have made him join a physical fitness group. Earlier by the end of the session he would feel completely drained out. I can see he feels more energetic now.
He also looks a lot happier and has less pre-teen mood swings. Physical fitness (which induces endorphins in the body) and Immuno Boosters (that provide him with missed nutrients) have certainly made a difference.
He also has been studying with more involvement. I believe that when you are happy mentally and physically, you are able to handle life stresses better.
The best part, I am more relaxed and don’t have to fight with him for every meal. While I believe a balanced diet is essential in a child’s growth, and I on my part, try and ensure he eats properly but sometimes while planning my meals might not be that particular. So while meals at home have a dal, vegetable, roti, salad, it gets tough to ensure that my kids eat all at every meal. With Immuno Boosters, this stress is off my list.
These are just a few things I have noticed as it’s been just about a month and I hope this phase will remain.
What is ActivKids Immuno Boosters?
ActivKids Immuno Boosters is a nutritional supplement for kids in a chocolate form that helps build their immunity and gives up to 100% RDA (Recommended Dietary Allowance).
Why is it required and how does it help?
Do you know that the Indian kids do not receive even 50% of RDA5 of key immunity nutrients?
Access to Nutrition Foundation (ATNF) has come up a report this year that identifies India to be facing the double burden of malnutrition; i.e., Indian kids suffer from both undernourishment and obesity due to less knowledge of how important it is to lay stress on a child’s nutritional needs. More than one-third of the world’s wasted children (54 million) live in India.
Also, pollution, lack of physical exercises, adulteration in food they consume are some of the factors that can lead to a weakened immunity in kids making them prone to infections
For building up your child’s immunity, it is important for your kid to have a nutrient-rich diet. Immunity is an important aspect not only to fight season’s common flu and cold but for the overall growth and development of the body. Immunity is the foundation of good health of kids. Many micronutrients are missed as kids mostly do not eat nutrient-rich food like green leafy vegetables, carrots, beans, and others.
