The exam season is always a hectic season for everyone involved; the kids, parents, and even the teachers! But the most stressed out could be the parents because long studying hours mean improper eating pattern and ultimately ill-health of the child. Increased stress puts a high demand for nutrients and if not taken care of the demands, kids during this time binge on high sugar and high-fat items.

“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” -Antoine de Saint-Exupery, The Little Prince After thinking about this quote for a while, I came up with several different interpretations. I thought about not judging a book by it’s cover and about the balance between your head and your heart; but for some reason, my mind keeps coming back to how this applies to society’s perception of beauty. About how society has a certain image that they claim beautiful, and anyone who differs from that image is no longer...Read More

It’s Sunday morning and all I want to do is relax and enjoy my morning tea. My 4-year-old has decided that she also needs to make the most of her Sunday so has woken up early. Very early I think! She is riding her little Scooty and all inspired by the republic day motorcycle stunts is trying out a few herself. And there her Scooty turns and before I can reach her she falls.
