What is #BestForBaby ???? A mom bloggers meet!!!

It’s always  fun when all mom bloggers meet together .Its really a awesome fun the whole day with fellow mommies thanks a ton  Johnson Baby India and Baby Chakra for organizing such amazing event about best parenting community .. I was totally not aware when i entered the place wats going to happen and wats the event is about..The hall was decorated colourfully … Baby Chakra insisted upon was that we should speak our mind and say whatever we feel as this platform is first and foremost for the benefit of mothers. There was a play area for kids as well so they don’t get bored …

 

I drank some much needed tea and parked myself at a table with my friends.Me and my daughter took some amazing pictures with photo booth and boards about mom over there….

The event began with some questions, sharing experiences, fun games and little lab experiments using Johnson’s products from Dipali.  She guided us through some fun games which not only helped us moms bond in our teams and at our tables but also helped us understand through play why Johnson’s Baby really is #BestforBaby.

We had beautiful team of strong, funny, crazy, powerful mommies and our team was named Naughty Moms….

We really had amazing fun and learning from games…Games like using a syringe to draw out water from a Johnson’s Baby wet wipe and a competitor brand showed us that Johnson’s Baby does indeed have more moisture and so is #BestforBaby.

 

We also really enjoyed the laundry game where we first got to really mess up a piece of cloth with stubborn stainers like paint, ketchup and soy sauce and then wash it at our tables with Johnson’s Baby laundry detergent. My eyes almost popped to see the cloth emerge spotless after the brief wash. This is a newly launched product by Johnson’s Baby and should be in your local stores right about now. More than #BestforBaby I am sure this product is going to be seen as best for mommy. That’s how amazing it is

Dipali started questions session in which she cleared all moms query.. Hats off to her ..I came to know many things in this session like Mineral oil prevents water loss from baby skin. We cannot measure about the PH value on a bar of soap it depends on Aqua solution. Baby skin PH value changes from baby born PH ..It varies in different parts of the body …Johnson baby soap help to stop skin irritation, and cleared  4 irritation test and it had vitamin A and super good for baby’s normal skin …Baby’s start responding faster because of fragrance and baby friendly ..

Johnson Baby India recently launched a soap called TOE-TOE soap for sensitive baby skin..Its milder than any other soap helps to keep baby’s skin soft

 

I also won for being active in all social platforms tweeting and posting updates ..Also got a bunch of goodies and vouchers. I was quite keen to try the newly launched Johnson’s Baby detergent after seeing it at work during one of the games at the event. So was very happy that they gave us a pack to take home and try .. We were also given a goodie bag with a Johnson and Johnson gift set containing Johnson and Johnson Baby cream, Massage oil, Hair oil, Moisturizing lotion, Baby powder, Top to toe body wash, comb, and rompers And of course, vouchers for more shopping on Baby Chakra

We remember our mothers using ‘Johnson’s Baby’ products for us, we never had to worry about it irritating in any way. The baby oils are the best way to massage the baby, make the bones stronger and for a good-night sleep.
I personally recommend all my friends and family for using the global leader in baby products and always doing what’s #BestforBaby.

If you have any doubt regarding Johnson baby india products you can mail to care@its.jnj.com and also u can call the toll free no 18002228111 /18002228110

The purpose of the event was just to reinforce the spirit with which Johnson’s products are made.One such promise is made by Johnson’s Baby- promise of being the #BestForBaby.

I had such an amazing time playing, asking, answering, meeting and greeting all beautiful people. I was so delighted to meet my fellow bloggers whom I knew as contacts but this event gave me an opportunity to meet them in person

This blog post is articulated for the BabyChakra event sponsored by Johnson’s baby #BESTFORBABY.

 

Idly upma (Leftout idly)

Idli upma is a very simple and delicious dish made with leftover idlis. Any upma is my favorite, but this is one easy and unique upma made from the leftover idlies . There must be a lot of variants in this idli upma, but this is the way I like… Today we will learn how to make idli upma following this easy recipe with leftover idlys.

Ingredients:

5-6 idlies
2 onions (finely chopped)
1/2  spoon red chilli powder & 1/4 spoon tumeric powder
6-7  curry leaves
1 tbsp of oil
1 tbsp of channa dal / kadala paruppu
1/4 tsp of mustard seeds
Salt of to taste
1-2 green chilli

IMG_20160903_070535

Method:

1.Crumble the idlis fine. Actually you can decide how fine or chunky you want it to be, amma does it quite fine. It also helps if the idlis are a bit cold, crumbles easier.

2. Keep your GREEN chillies, curry leaves and onions ready

3.  Heat oil and add the mustard seeds. When they pop, add the channa dal.

4. Fry until they turn golden brown – about a minute. This gives out a nice flavour to the idli upma.

5. Add green chillies and onion. Fry until the onions turn a golden brown. Throw in the curry leaves, dry red chilli powder & tumeric powder  and salt. Be careful with the salt, since the idlis are already salted. Mix well

6. Add the crumbled idlis… Add littlie water .. and mix well to combine everything. Keep flame at medium-low at all times, or the idlis will start to fry. We need to maintain its softness at all times.

7. Serve hot and I personally love to have any upma with a cup of coffee

#ProjectThiramai – A CSR by Pepsico & Smile foundation

‘Project Thiramai’ was kicked off by PepsiCo right after the 2015 Chennai floods, to equip underprivileged women with skills that would essentially improve their livelihood to a varying degree. 235 women from 12 villages such as Mamandur, Thabalmedu (Palamathur), Natarajapuram, Nelvoy and Salavakkam among others focused on health and livelihood enhancement through this vocational training program, which was implemented by Smile Foundation. I witnessed this event where these women were felicitated with certificates and sewing machines as a part of Project Thiramai after receiving proficient training in tailoring.

The initiative ran over the duration of three months. The training also incorporated repair and management of sewing machines so that students were not dependent on external help, thus saving them money and time. Special attention was given to the holistic development of these students. This initiative has been running three programs across these villages— Smile on Wheels (mobile health vans), a School health program and project Thiramai for women empowerment.

Smile Foundation is a national level development organization directly benefiting over 400,000 children and their families every year, through more than 200 live welfare projects on education, healthcare, livelihood and women empowerment, in over 950 remote villages and slums across 25 states of India.

PepsiCo India has been a partner and a contributor to the growth of Tamil nadu since 1989. Pepsico India and its partners have five manufacturing facilities in the State , creating employment for more than 15,000 people through manufacturing , sales and distribution initiatives.. The company currently works with more than 400 farmers across the state for better cultivation practices and sourcing. Its direct seeding initiative for rice has helped farmers reduce the water consumption by 30% and helped save 1.5 billion litres of water

The event began with the lighting of a lamp. Mr. Sanjeev Dham thanked the PepsiCo foundation for their support on this amazing initiative and saluted the spirited women who took the first step towards being empowered. He then congratulated the first batch of women graduates and wished them luck for their bright future. This event was organized to celebrate the success of this initiative and felicitate the trainees who successfully completed the vocational training. They were also rewarded with free sewing machines so they could begin working. This project also aims to provide graduating students with job opportunities with business houses in the area, which offers them the choice of working from home even. Yoga and meditation classes, awareness on obesity and eradication of poverty as well as awareness on nutrition is also made part of the curriculum so that their entire families could benefit from the program.

Ms. Poonam Kaul said she feels proud to see women that have chosen to be economically empowered. Project Thiramai provides the necessary tailoring skills to women to help them bridge that gap.

During the unfortunate floods of 2015, PepsiCo India mobilized its sales team and factory staff to deliver relief to the people in need. The company has also supplied more than 1.4 liters of Aquafina purified water along with 38,000 kilos of Quaker oats.

Ministers MC Sampath and P Thangamani addressed the attendees by saying how happy they felt regarding the initiative of Project Thiramai, and its resolve to help the disadvantaged families in need. Through this CSR initiative, they’ve set a good lead for other corporate companies to follow.

18280067_1405254219531112_402575793_n

The Classic Mountain -100% Arabica offering with  Craft Coffee I found to be milder on taste but stronger on fragrance.

18280188_1405254232864444_1989145889_n

The Classic Pride -100% Arabica with notes of Chocolate & nuts -Robusta blend, which balances the fine nuances…..I enjoyed the flavor of  chocolate and nuts in my coffee, it was definitely what I needed for a rough day..
