Motherhood - Start Ups, Books and Hindi!

Motherhood has been quite a journey for me so far. I went from being a full time scientific officer at a university in Sydney to being a full time mom in Bangalore. One of my expectations from the move from Australia to India was the exposure my child would have to our culture and more importantly to our language, Hindi.

Play with your food and other ways to form good eating habits!

Play with your food and other ways to form good eating habits!

Let your children play with their food. Yes, you read that right. Let your kids come up with creative ideas about food. Make food time fun, at least in the beginning. Do not hurry them and make it a serious affair.  Let them rearrange their food so that it looks like something they like. Let them take a little time over their food. It will save a lot of time bargaining later.
