‘Quarantining’ ourselves at home is playing a significant role in preventing the spread of the virus….( thanks to all the families) but as sitting home is disrupting our normal routine and making it look tough, in this state we have to be very strong both mentally & physically.
At the same time, it’s vital to keep kids happy, active and energetic at home during self-quarantine. It is thus imperative to ensure that kids’ nutrition is well balanced these days.
