Winter is here and with it comes the pollution too. I found my little one falling ill too often. Maybe it is the weather I thought. But even with proper woollens and medicines to protect her, the number of times my little one fell ill in a month, seem to spike and got me worried. Was I missing something?
Whenever my child returned home all hungry after an exhausting session of football practice and makes a dash straight to the box of sweets on the table, I stopped her and made sure she washed her hands thoroughly. But what about at school? Kids, in their excitement and hurry, tend to forget the basics when it comes to hygiene and good health when they are playing with their friends. Either they end up using the same soap bar as others- only spreading the infection from one to another. Or when they use a common handwash- How can we, as parents, find a solution to this? ITC's Savlon Swasth India Mission has come up with this innovative mission to address the widespread issue of hand hygiene by introducing the unique Savlon ID Guard.
