It’s the time for Monsoons, the most awaited season of the year. After the scorching summer 
heat, grey skies, cool temperatures and rain showers refresh us. While the rain may relieve 
from the summer heat, it also brings with it a series of viruses, infections and the occasional 
viral flu, dengue, malaria and chikungunia. So, it is important to protect ourselves against 
these ailments to make the most of the pleasant weather.  
In order to keep children healthy, active and disease free follow these tips and we assure you they 
will build immunity and protect against infections throughout the monsoons:

onion, garlic and ginger which are allium compounds must be consumed as they are potent
