When your 3 and a half-year-old breaks into ‘How Far I’ll Gooo…o-o’ and ‘What is wrong with me?!’ just about anywhere, it’s not tough to decide upon the theme for his/her next birthday party. If all this makes no sense to you, you probably haven’t watched Moana.

Check out the fun we had at H’s Moana Party after the jump!

From junk to kids’ play area: Tour of my girl’s secret room!

kids Room Decor: Before and After
Kids Room Decor: Before and After

We have recently moved into a new home. A typical Mumbai apartment amidst a concrete jungle.  Besides the living room, the other two rooms are taken over by adults, which means the kiddo has no place to call her own.  As per Mumbai standards, there’s nothing new in that. But my four year old is used to playing on an open terrace of our previous home. So, how do I turn this house into a ‘home’ that’s inviting and engages my kid,  was the question that I had to find an answer for!

Make boring recipes yummy with Hershey’s Syrups and Chef Rakhee

Turn boring recipes into yummy delights with Hersheys
Turn boring recipes into yummy delights with Hersheys

Setting: Dining table laid with healthy food, while your kid is eagerly waiting to dig into it.

Mummy: Baby, food is here! Let’s eat.

Kid: Wow mummy!  I love this. Slurrp! 

Voila! Food finished!

Trrrriiinnngg Trriiiinnngg! It’s wake up time mummy! Dream over!

Honestly speaking, making kids eat everything that you make,  that too in a jiffy is stuff that dreams are made of. At least for me. Yes, I’m blessed with a fussy and picky eater. She can throw every possible tantrum to avoid food. So, as a mom I have to be smart enough to keep experimenting with my recipes and ingredients and hide as much nutrition as I can in my child’s diet. I’m sure all you moms would relate to this everyday struggle.  And I’m also sure that even you must be having your own tricks to fool these little monsters into eating all the nutrients laden food that you make.

If you check out my twitter timeline. you would know that I was recently invited to a cook along session organised by Hershey’s, where celebrated chef Rakhee Vaswani whipped up some smart magic using Hershey’s syrups to give a yummy twist to otherwise boring recipes. Wanna know what did we make to create #EverydayHappinessWithHersheys.

Check them out the Hershey’s recipes here… Continue reading Make boring recipes yummy with Hershey’s Syrups and Chef Rakhee
