Food festival for kids



On the occasion of Children’s Day, Chowman launched a week-long ‘Children’s Food Festival’ with the underprivileged kids of NGO Basha.

Everything on the menu was created keeping in mind the flavours and textures that appeal to children the most – sweet, crunchy and tasty. This grand launch was raised by actor Koneenica Banerjee and Debaditya Chaudhury, MD, Chowman hospitality Pvt Ltd.

Speaking on the occasion, Debaditya Chaudhury said, “Children make us happy. Some children, who are less than fortunate, do not receive as much love and happiness as the share with the world. I wanted to give them happiness on this day which did not usually get and make them feel special and equally wanted in this society.”

Koneenika spoke at the event, “When we think of children, we think of Chinese. I am thankful to Debaditya for organising this event and calling the kids from Basha to experience this. I believe this food festival is going to be a success and I wish it all the best.”

Ms. Nita Bajoria was all set in a successful business career; so successful that a common person will think million times before breaking the status quo. Thankfully, this was not the case with Ms. Nita Bajoria. She decided to come out from the status quo and took up her childhood passion. ‘The Leap’ was her debut novel which was a science fiction received well by all the readers.

If you are not able to wash your hands with soap and water, use an alcohol-based sanitizer. Although a sanitizer is not that effective as washing your hands with soap and water but it can eliminate germs to a large extent when water and soap are not available. However, a sanitizer cannot eliminate dust, dirt and chemicals. The sanitizer should contain 60 percent alcohol.

Follow the correct steps to use a hand sanitizer:

Put a few drops of sanitizer on the palm of one hand.

Rub both hands with each other for at least 20 seconds. Rub between your fingers. The sanitizer would dry away.

Put a few drops on the backsides of each hand and rub until it dries away.

Few other precautions:

Coronavirus germs can live on hard surfaces for several hours. It is important to disinfect the high-touch surfaces quite often which can come in contact with the virus, especially at public places.

Do not bite your nails or touch your face, eyes, mouth and nose with dirty hands. These practices may put that virus on a direct route to your mouth and nose, giving it the ability to start making you sick. Keep your hands away from your face. When you touch any contaminated surface, you get sick after touching your face with the same contaminated hands by transferring the virus in your mouth or nose to cause the infection.

Do not share things at public places like utensils, food, water etc. Avoid sharing tiffin in the school or office or other such places. Although food does not spread the infection, sharing a plate or eating utensils with someone who is infected can potentially make you sick.

Try to avoid going to crowded places because infected people may not show any symptoms. There is no practical way to assess whether someone is suffering from coronavirus or not. So anyone can get infected unknowingly after coming in contact with an infected person.

Wash your clothes in hot water. After handling dirty laundry, wash your hands thoroughly.

Boost your immune system by adding the right vitamins and other nutrients to your diet.

Stay away from people who have symptoms of cold, flu and sickness. If you see someone sneezing or coughing, keep a distance of at least three feet from him to keep yourself safe.

If you are sick, stay home. Cover your mouth when you cough with disposable tissue. Dispose of the used tissues immediately after use in a closed dustbin. Use a mask to help prevent spreading of the virus. Discard the mask after using it for a day. Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or a folded elbow when you cough or sneeze. Consult your doctor immediately when you are sick.

Prevention is always better than cure. You must take extra precautions for prevention from coronavirus.
