Top 10 Indian healthy food for your child

Last year, a leading daily reported that a range of 2.9 to 14.3 per cent school children in our country suffered from obesity and 1.5 to 2.4 per cent of them were overweight. This is a trend observed in the cities but Tier 2 is not far behind. The cause of this is a no brainer. Accessibility to junk and processed foods and lack of physical activity are the key culprits. A study confirmed that out of 13,200 children who took part in the survey, 93% of them consumed packaged foods, 68% indulged in sugar-sweetened beverages and a shocking 53% had either of the two every day!

Collaborate with teachers and work wonders for your kids!

With children spending close to 8 hours of their time in a day at school and probably a few more hours in extra-curricular activities, keeping a track on minute aspects becomes difficult.

How Samsidh helps in creating morally responsible citizens

What are the odds that one’s good deeds are rewarded decades later? Here’s a gist of one such act. A kind lady once paid for a young ticketless traveller out of compassion, who was in a deplorable condition. Due to her poor background and difficult times, the girl was not only offered monetary help for the ticket, but shelter and education to empower herself. The obedient girl achieved her dreams and was even able to travel to the US and settle into a good life. One day, unexpectedly the sponsor of the girl, on one of her travels, faced a pleasant surprise while checking out of her hotel. Her bills settled by the very same girl with gratitude whose train tickets were taken care of.  The true act of compassion had yielded such happiness and well-being to one and all. The compassionate lady is none other than the Chairperson of Infosys Foundation, Ms Sudha Murthy.

Apart from human factors, environment also plays a key role in helping a person achieve and this may not be the
same for everyone. Success is, therefore, a highly subjective term.
