How good is Soy for you?
Most of the women these days are working. We are always trying to balance out different aspects of our life and strike an equilibrium between professional and personal matters. Amongst all jobs that women have, one important job is that of a mother. It is natural for you to be concerned about your child’s health and well being. At the same time due to our busy work schedules, women are not able to think about the nutrient value of the food that we give to our kids especially for school tiffin. How many of you have actually given it a thought? How good is Soy for you?
From my personal experience, mornings are often chaotic for moms as well as kids. As a result, mothers do not have time to prepare a wholesome meal for tiffin and neither do kids have the time to eat a proper breakfast before going to school. Is there anything to make sure that gives optimal nutrition to your little one and can make up for the deficits in a “not so nutritious Tiffin box”. The answer is “Yes”. You can give your kids the goodness of Soy products #HealthySoy
